February 27, 1967 - October 19, 2018

John Malcolm McCormick, 51, Missoula, Montana, passed away Friday Oct. 19, at St. Patrick's Hospital, after suffering a massive stroke.
John was born Feb. 27, 1967, in South Bend, Indiana. He attended St. Joseph's High School and played baseball, football and ice hockey. Hockey was his passion and he played collegiate hockey and graduated from Kent State University. He completed his education with a master's degree in business administration from Michigan State University and headed west to Colorado.
While working in education services, John enjoyed years of skiing, hiking, biking and fly fishing.
In 2002, John accepted a job at the University of Montana in the finance department and moved to Missoula. At the time of his death, John was business services director and interim director of the Adams Center. John loved his job at the University and his coworkers and they enjoyed his witty sense of humor.
Above all, John was a loving father to his children, Caroline, A.J. and Jesse McCormick. He was most proud of his children and loved to watch them and support them in their swimming and in life. He was an active parent and served on the Parent Advisory Committee for the Missoula YMCA swim team.
John is survived by his children; parents, Robert and Jacqueline McCormick, Goshen, Indiana; his sister, Leslie McCormick, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and his soulmate, Robin Greenwood, Missoula.
A memorial service will take place on the third floor of the University Center Building at the University of Montana, Monday Oct. 29, at 4 p.m. Doors will open at 3:30 p.m. There will be a reception immediately following.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to the University of Montana Foundation in memory of John McCormick, P.O. Box 7159, Missoula, MT 59807.
