NORMAN BUD MCCORMICK
With heavy hearts we announce the passing, April 13, 2022, of our beloved father and super hero, Norman Bud McCormick. On the cusp of a mighty Manitoba blizzard, embraced by Deidre, the love of his life, living children, Mardi and Clark, and his favourite sister-in-law Jan, Buddy bid us all Adieu.
Dad is the last of his brothers and sisters to pass away. He grieved deeply for the loss of his eldest son, and our brother Reid.
Dad leaves behind, his wife DeeDee, his children, Mardi Hull (Bobby) and Clark McCormick (Eydis), his grandchildren, Taylor and Amanda of Tampa and Atlanta, Brandi of Henderson, NV, Blake of Redmond, Oregon, Sigrun, Bryndis and Alexander of Akureyri, Iceland.
We would like to thank the nurses and doctors of the palliative care program of the WRHA that cared for our Dad in these final days.
In death, as in life, Buddy did it his way.
A celebration of Bud's life will be held for family and friends at a later date this summer.

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)
We are deeply saddened to learn of Bud's passing, our sincere condolences to Diedre, Marty, Clarke and your families. May you find comfort in knowing that Bud's countless friends and those of us that were privileged enough to be included in his inner circle, we all are are thinking of you during this difficult time. I will remember Bud as a man that loved Diedre and his family. True to his Scottish heritage Bud did everything his way at first, with a keen eye for a deal and an ability to recognize those of whom he could trust, a very respected territory manager in a competitive industry, he always went the extra mile for Labatt's Manitoba. I knew Bud for years before I knew his real name, until one day when Bud challenged Diedre's decision, of course the Scot stood his ground until Diedre said "Norman"?, followed by her infectious laugh. Norman huh? Bud's storytelling, wit, generosity and his ability of inclusion are memories that I will hold onto forever. Rest in peace my friend - Posted by: Jim & Cindy (Family Friend) on: Apr 18, 2022
I Met Bud shortly after his family moved into Winnipeg from Dominion City. Bud lived at 42 Donald and I lived at 56. He joined us on our hockey rink on the Assiniboine River at the foot of Donald. First impressions of Bud where "Man can that kid skate" Growing up when the ice on the river was not available we honed our hockey skills on Donald Street using plentiful frozen round pucks left by Eaton's wagon horses. Also on Assiniboine Ave "Riverside Grocery" was located. It was owned by Alex Cunningham, who had a very attractive daughter "Diedre". We all know what 67 year long happy event that led to. Bud invited me to his 90th birthday party and Bud confessed that he had confessed to Diedre that as kids we used to pull back the metal on the side of her Dad's garage to "borrow" a Pepsi or two, but she had forgiven us. So many fond memories of you Bud, we miss you, rest in peace. - Posted by: Bill King (Grew up with Bud) on: Apr 16, 2022

To the McCormick Family- sincere sympathy and condolences. We will miss his friendly wave and chats on the front lawn-a strong and kind presence on the street. Wishing you strength and good memories in the days ahead. - Posted by: Alfred Buelow, Louise Buelow-Smith, Eric Smith (neighbours) on: Apr 16, 2022
It has been many years since I have seen Bud and DeeDee, but I still remember them fondly. I am so sorry to find out that Bud has left us. I remember being at many parties in their basement. On Bud's 40th birthday (I believe it was his 40th) he was late to his party because he got a Hole-in-One while golfing. I also remember DeeDee saying to him, at a different party, "even after all these years, you are still the best looking man in the room" - Posted by: Brenda Rech (Selmon) (Girlfriend of Reid (Many years ago)) on: Apr 16, 2022
Sorry to hear of Bud’s passing. I curled with him, Kelly and Laverne in Manitoba Tankard in 1966. Will always remember his laughter, his stories, and his competitive nature. May he Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Wayne Motheral (Curling friend) on: Apr 16, 2022
I'm sorry for your loss he was a great guy. I know he's upstairs chilling with Reid and his buds. I met Bud through my father on hockey trips. I was tape and stick boy, what a blast they had. Bud always had the time to talk to me like I was someone I thought of him as another... Father patience and kind God bless you Mr. McCormick. Take care thinking of all of you ..
