I didn't know Mr. Cormier but I do know his son Markus. If Markus is anything like his father then Mr. Cormier must have been a wonderful man. The sincerity, compassion and generosity shown by Markus to others is a testament to how he was raised. I think Mr. Cormier must have been a great man and affected many other lives just as his son has.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

I met mr. Cormier through my mother-in-law . He needed someone to help him with his household cleaning . I helped mr. Cormier keep up his house chores for the last couple years of his life until this past September. I always found Mr Cormier to be a very sweet and considerate person. I enjoyed being able to visit and talk with him. He was such a happy person, and always spoke warmly of his family and friends whenever we talked. I will miss him.

Doris and I served on the Westlake City Council together. I found him to be a very honest and friendly man. He served with pride and dignity. His family was always the apple of his eye.

I am proud that our lives crossed in such a pleasant manner. He will be remembered fondly !

May our Lord and savior ,Jesus Christ, give you comfort and peace.
