Cranberry Lake – Lucas Paul McCormick, age 28, of Cranberry Lake, passed away on September 28, 2013 from injuries received in an automobile accident.

His survivors include his parents, Paul and Joanne McCormick of Cranberry Lake; his daughter, Juniper McCormick of Cranberry Lake; twin brother Jordan Wayne McCormick of Glenville; and daughter, Olivia McCormick; maternal grandmother, Patricia Woods of Newton Falls; and his aunts and uncles, Patti Woods of Cranberry Lake, Michael Woods of Watertown, Martin and Ginger Woods of Windfall, Jeffrey Woods of Newton Falls, William and Georgiana Woods of Syracuse, Tony and Courtney Woods of Potsdam, Susan Woods of San Jose, CA, Lisa and Bill Foy of San Jose, CA, Kelly Woods and Robert Emery of San Francisco, CA, Gail and Otie Gotham of Cranberry Lake, Dale and Cynthia McCormick of Hannawa Falls, and Fred and Becky McCormick of Star Lake. He is also survived by many, many cousins and friends.
Luke is predeceased by his paternal grandparents, George and Queenie McCormick, and his maternal grandfather, Wayne Woods.
