Robert Arthur McCormack passed away peacefully in the Lloydminster Hospital on Wednesday, December 13th, 2023 at the age of 87.
Robert was born April 10, 1936 at Lashbum, Sask. to Albert and Constance McCormack of the Artland district. Robert grew up on the family farm with his sister, Barbara and brother, Raymond and, later, his youngest sister, Sheila. He took his schooling at Fram School. Following his schooling, he worked for some of the local farmers. He then worked for a grain farmer at Eatonia for three years and decided that he wanted to be a straight grain farmer, which he did for many years, buying a number of acres and then farming his father's farm as well.
During his farming years, he met Anna Lakusta and they were married Nov. 30, 1983. Robert split his married life of nearly 40 yrs between living in Lloydminster and his farm. They had a good life and made many car trips.
A favorite pastime of Robert's was going to the Marsden coffee shop as he loved visiting and talking. There he heard of all the goings on in the community. That's what he missed most was when he couldn't drive anymore and couldn't come to the cafe.
Robert leaves to mourn: his sister, Sheila Graham; sister-in-law, Viola McCormack; nieces, Regina Graham and Lucinda McCormack; nephews, Richard Graham, Steven McCormack, Pat (Marilyn) Ponech and Dan Ponech; great niece, Randi Ponech and son Kayden, great nephew, Mackenzie Ponech, and the Owen Lakusta family.
Robert is predeceased by: his loving wife, Anna; his parents, Albert and Connie, sister and brother-in-law, Barbara and Matt Ponech; brother, Raymond and brother-in-law, Arthur Graham.
As to Robert's wishes there will be no service. A private burial of his ashes will be held at the Brady Cemetery in 2024.
