Sam Jackson informed us of Noel McCormack’s sudden passing on November 23. Several NCNO members attended his memorial mass on Dec. 7th.
From wife Betsy McCormack: Thank you so much for the gorgeous flower arrangement, your notes and messages, and for coming to remember Noel at the service and gathering following his passing. There was a very special place in Noel’s heart for his pals at the Norton club and he loved all of the activities with you for as long as I’ve known him. Thank you for being there for him and for me.
