Mark was born to the late Gordon and Beatrice McCormick on October 26, 1957. He was a resident of Erieau for almost all of his life.

Mark proudly received his Captain's papers in 1980 and went on to Captain the family tug the "Cindy Lou" and further moved on to tow tugs on the Great Lakes. His beautiful smile and heartfelt laughter will forever be missed, but never forgotten. Mark is predeceased in death by his father Gordon, his mother Beatrice and his brother Allan McCormick. He is survived by his sister Cindy and brother-in-law Mike Dubé; niece Chandelle Dubé; nephews Shane Dubé, Tyler Dubé and Kyle McCormick; great nephews Liam and Deklyn.
