Kerin,   Cormac

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Cormac Anthony Kerin, who died suddenly in a traffic accident on Tuesday December 2nd, 2020.

Cormac (12 years of age) attended Grade 7 at St. Anthony’s School (port Hope, Ontario).   He was a proud and committed member of the Northumberland Nighthawks Hockey organization.

Cormac was a unique young man, blessed with an abundance of talents. His future was limitless. He always used this intellect and inquisitive mind in a positive manner.

Cormac had a profound love for his family, friends, teammates, coaches, and teachers. He loved to learn.

Cormac loved baking and photography. He adored nature and was determined, along with the rest of his generation, to find solutions for the global climate change crisis.

Cormac had a growing concern for social justice issues, particularly our nation’s mistreatment of indigenous peoples. He wanted Canada to “own up” and fix the problem.

His friends and family adored him; he was known as a caring and kind person who did many selfless acts unprompted. Cormac was blessed with a brilliant sense of humour and a fantastic, unforgettable laugh.

On Friday December 11th, 2020, a private celebration of his life will be held at the Ross Funeral Chapel, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church, Port Hope. Burial will follow at the St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Cemetery.  Those wishing to participate may view the live webcast on Cormac’s page at

Cormac is survived by his father Brendan, mother Jennifer, sisters Aishling and Shea. And his loving extended family members.

Those seeking to make a charitable donation in Cormac’s honour are encouraged to consider Sick Kids Children’s Hospital, Toronto and may be received at the funeral home website.
