It is with the most profound sadness and broken hearts, the family of Rory McCormick announce his unexpected passing at his home Sunday, March 5, 2023, at 29 years old.

Rory will be deeply missed by his brother Bryan (Sierra Jessup) McCormick as well as his best friend, Patrick. Rory loved all his small critters including his bearded dragons. He was loved by so many including his aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, extended family, and friends. The family would like to extend their gratitude and thanks to all those who have reached out to them to express their sympathies. Your love and support has not went unnoticed. A private family celebration of life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Northumberland Hills Hospital Community Mental Health Services.

Always forever, until we meet again our Rocking Rory.

Rory lives on within our sweet memories, his smile, his light, his jokes are not lost. Though we will miss his gentle touch, we could never lose his most noble virtue, his heart. Death can not take that away from anyone. His love lives, just now from a distance.

God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart. -Bonnie Dodd

My heart breaks with the news of Rory’s passing. Rory and I dated back in grade 8 and in highschool when he lived with his grandma in Toronto. I am so grateful for the memories we made. I know he’s at peace now and no longer fighting his demons. Rest easy Roar, until we meet again xo

Glenda Holden (Isobel's Great Grammy) - March 10, 2023

Bob, Heather, Sherri, Bryan & Sierra. You have lost a Son, brother and a piece of your Heart. Patrick, you have lost your best friend, but most of all Isobel and Gabriel you have lost your daddy. Rory always put his kids first. He had a good repour with us and our family. I remember his smile would light up the whole room. The day he came through the hospital doors into the waiting room with his arms wide open and so thrilled he had his first child (Isobel) Rory, you will always live in our hearts, and I ask for those you left behind that God will wrap His loving arms of comfort around them while they grieve your loss. It's time to rest now my friend and we will carry on your love for your children as you watch over them. 🙏💔

Dearest condolences 💐 I will always remember Rory as a part of my high school experience when I first met him we automatically connected and became friends forever! There’s never been a time Rory was not the most supportive friend I could of asked for. I’ll always remember his smile in the back of my mind laughing together and reminiscing about our memories. May he rest peacefully and may both families heal from this tragedy.
