McCormick, Daniel J. “Danny” (27 June 1944 – 19 September 2009)
Daniel J. “Danny” McCormick, 65, of Alma Center died Saturday, Sept. 19, 2009, at Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield.
Danny was born June 27, 1944, in La Crosse, the son of Ambrose and Kathryn (Moore) McCormick. He was raised in Hokah, MN, and Melrose, graduating from Melrose High School in 1963. Following his graduation he moved to Alma Center and worked as a milk hauler. When he was in his early 20s, he bought a milk route of his own, owning two milk trucks at one point. He sold his milk route in 2003. He also owned a farm in Garden Valley, which he purchased in the early 1970s.
Danny was a hard-working, down-to-business individual. His simple pleasures included going to coffee and having a few beers with his friends.
Survivors include three brothers, Robert McCormick of St. Charles, MN, Richard (Mary) McCormick of Holmen and Mark (Linda) McCormick of Onalaska; one sister, Rita McCormick of Caledonia, MN; special caregiver, Patti Junk of Alma Center; besides many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
Daniel was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Gerald and William McCormick; and sisters, Mary and Elaine McCormick.
A time of remembrance will be held for family and friends to celebrate Daniel’s life Thursday, Sept. 24, 2009, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Jensen-Modjeski Funeral Home, Hixton. Cremation will follow and burial of ashes will take place at a later date in Saint Peter’s Cemetery, Hokah, MN.
Honorary bearers will be Jim Czarnik, Jim Gearing, Zachary Janke, Raymond Green and Wade Stubrud.
