Former Lethbridge Legion President Michael Cormican has passed away.
The 75-year-old lost his life on August 6 with his closest family next to him.
Back in 2021, he had to step back from his duties as president of the legion as he was dealing with an aggressive form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme or GBM.
Glenn Miller, a friend and colleague of Cormican at the legion, outlined what kind of a person he was.
“He was very caring and very involved in many different not for profit organizations. He ran for the Liberal Party. And he wasn’t a veteran, but he cared a lot about the veterans and as an ambassador for the veterans he was a great ally for that on behalf of the Legion to make sure that generation of remembrance is still important and passed on. So he was very important to the legion and to the community in whole. There’s going to be a large gap that he had filled and is going to be missing for a while.”
Cormican leaves behind his wife Gloria, four children and six grandchildren.
He will be laid to rest in a private burial at Mountain View Cemetery in Lethbridge.
