Stephen Douglas McCormick passed away on Nov 7, 2018 at the age of 64 in the loving company of his wife Gloria, daughter Amanda and son-in-law Derek Andrews. Steve was larger than life and had such an impact on those who knew him. He wasn’t just one of Metro’s Finest, he was one of The Finest. He was kind and generous and his sense of humour connected him to everyone he met. Steve lived life to the fullest. Over the years he had many hobbies including skiing, tennis, martial arts, running and golf. He loved to be physically active and fit. He was a respected Detective Sergeant for the Metro Toronto Police department for 24 years. A third generation police officer, Steve always knew he wanted to be a policeman and he enjoyed his work so much that it didn't feel like work to him. The remainder of his career was as co-founder of MKD International. He of course, was the M in MKD. For nearly 20 years he ran this successful business alongside some of his closest friends and loved every minute of it. Since retiring two years ago, Steve was able to spend more time with his beautiful granddaughters, Riley and Madison. They will miss their 'Mac' very much. Steve’s favourite place was his backyard filled with family and friends enjoying drinks, bbq and the pool on a summers day. He was an incredible cook and boy did he like to bbq. We lost count of how many bbqs he had. He was married to Gloria, the love of his life for 42 years. Over the years, their timeless love and strong bond saw them through so many good times and helped them get through the most challenging, especially over the last few months. We feel so blessed to have known and loved him. He was truly one of a kind and so many people will feel the sad loss of our Steve. Until we meet again. xoxo
A Celebration of Steve's life will be held on December 1st. For further information please contact The Simple Alternative, 905-602-1580.
