Sunday’s Obituary – Henry McCormack

Today, I would like to share the obituary of Henry McCormack. There is some “suggestion” that his first name was Thomas, but I haven’t seen enough documentation to say yes or no.  This first picture was taken when Henry still lived in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

 This second picture of Henry was probably taken in Ithaca, Michigan. The actual location is unknown to both me and the owner of the picture.

 It was “nice” to see that he got front page coverage.

 It is odd to see a man’s obituary in the paper and an ad for his store at the same time!

Thanks for stopping by!
