Ken McCormick

It is with sadness that I must let Durantonian's know of the passing of Ken McCormick on Dec. 12, 2021.
Ken was an active member for many years and made many friends at Durant conventions. We offer a toast to Ken (Yukon Jack) which was a favourite of Ken's drink and which many of you have sampled in past meeting.
RIP my friend.

Re: Ken McCormick

That is SO sad to hear. I really liked to be around him at the meets.

Re: Ken McCormick

Im saddened to read this. We ALWAYS looked forward to seeing Ken at the annual meets. His last one was the Modesto Meet. But we always hoped he would be able to attend another one. Ken put a smile on everyone's face-and offered to share his Yukon Jack, with whoever was willing to try it. He definitely was great part of this Durant family and will be sorely missed! RIP Ken.Hugs and Prayers to Norma!

Re: Ken McCormick

OH NO! Sad sad news. Ken was a great character and character he was. He was a very colorful and great person and he will be missed. I sampled his refreshment of choice once at on of the meets and it sure warmed the tummy and I think we could have put it in the tanks of the old Durants to keep them running. Rest in peace old friend!

Re: Ken McCormick

I just wanted to thank all of the Durant Motors Club for all the kind and sweet words that Durant Motors Club members have had to say about my dad Ken McCormick. It has touched our heart to overflowing to know of all the sweet words people had to say about my dad. Please have a sip of your favorite drink on behalf of my dad and remember all the fond and funny memories you all shared with him. He smiles in heaven knowing he has great friends like the Durant Motors Club. Thanks again for the good wishes.

Re: Ken McCormick

Susan, your dad will definitely be missed by this group. He alway lit up the room when he walked in (usually with his Jack in his hand and a smile on his face). We truly enjoyed getting to know him better each year when we all got together at the September meets. Hugs to you and the family. He got a lot of the club hooked on his drink of choice!
