Sorry to hear, years ago he was my doctor as a child. He was a good doctor.I was in the hospital years ago with a high fever and he found out it was just an ear infection. He sent me home on antibiotics and said all she needs is take that, be held (in rocking chair). Another doctor had a spinal tap done on me. I was only 4 or 5. So then that is when he became my new doctor.
Scott and Family, It has been so many years since I lived in Williamston and now find myself so far away. However, as so many from across the U.S. and beyond have expressed the same thoughts and rememberances, I too, wish to do the same. Dr. McCorvie was our family doctor from the time I was 4 to 12. He brought three of my five siblings into this world. I remember always feeling safe with him, even if it meant a SHOT!!! I thank you and your family for sharing him with so many. With deepest sympathy and respect.
Doctor McCorvie.. was a wonderful man, and a very caring doctor... I missed him alot when he retired...(not many docs like him left) God Bless him and his family..God has taken him,to serve in another way.. Rest in Peace..
So sorry to hear of Don's passing and I know all of the family will greatly miss him and Lois especially.
But he did have a long and fulfilled life which is why he will be missed by so many.
We are thinking of you at this time.
Elizabeth and Ken, Margaret and Martha Langford
Dear Lois , Jill and Family,
My heartfelt condolences to you all for the loss of your Husband and Dad. Don was always such a kind and friendly individual , dedicated to his family, patients and community.
Lisa and all the family - we are thinking of you all at this sad time. We hope your many happy memories of your Dad will help you through. Even having met your Dad for the short time in Michigan for Christmas and your wedding, he made a great impression as a kind and loving man. It's clear from the comments here that he made the same impression on many others.
I have many fond memories of Dr. McCorvie and his beautiful family. My love and prayers are with you all! Liz Larson-Davis, Williamston
We are so sorry - we know that this will be a huge loss for all of you, and the thousands of patients that your dad care for over the years. We are praying that you would feel comforted in a way that only Christ can! We love you all,

Lois and Family, We thought we could work out a way to be with you today but we can't. I had retina surgery Monday and Janet bummed a ride to the eye doctor this morning for an eye injection so neither of us can drive today. Please know we are there for you in spirit and in our prayers. We will always remember Don as a very pleasant and kind person and hope you get some comfort from knowing he is now watching form his new home in heaven. God Bless, Jim and Janet Leonard

I know you were so proud of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know what a difficult time this is for you and your family. My heart goes out to you. Hang in there Lady! Love you!
Dear McCorvie Family - As Mary Jo's mother-in-law, I must say what a privilege it has been to know your dad, Don. He was such a caring, giving, unassuming, light-hearted man. And it runs in the family! He will be missed, but I know you have many, many happy, fond memories. Hang on to those.
Love to the whole clan.
We had a delightful hour long visit with Don last week at Crosaires. He seemed like the same happy, smiling, laughing Don we have always known, and we will cherish that time with him. He will be missed, but remembered by the sunshine of his smile.
Blessings to you all, Dave and Cinda Morrison
We are all better people to have known Don. I'm so sorry for your loss, but join in the celebration of his life. My time with him as he shared his Navy stories for the Library of Congress was so special. Quite a remarkable life! With love and sympathy to all of you . . .
Dear Lois, Scott,Jill,MaryJo, & Lisa,
Sending my thoughts and prayers to you and your beautiful families...I so loved Doc and all you little kids as I babysat for all of you. His great laugh will be in my heart forever.
Love to you, Elaine Pearson (Lange)
Sincere sympathy to you and your family from the Class of 1950 of the Toronto Western Hospital. What wonderful memories we have of our days together with you and Don. He was such a kind, good man and an excellant Doctor. We will miss him at our reunions.

Scott, I know this last year has been rough on you and your family. No matter how prepared you may think you are for losing a parent, it is never easy. My thoughts are with you.
My words cannot express the love, kindness and gratitude I have experienced in having been touched by "Doc" and Lois McCorvie. They took me in as a wayward son for a few brief summers in Charlevoix,and at the home in Williamston. I can still hear that beautiful laugh and see the warm embrace of his smile. Thanks "Doc" for caring so much for me and for touching my life in such a positive way. You will be missed... because you were truly one of a kind.
Dear Lois, Jill and all of your family,
Don's life was well - lived. He was caring and wise, yet always had a twinkle in his eye! I always picture him smiling and laughing like this wonderful photo. I must share a story that illustrates Don's caring nature. On August 7, 1998 I awoke feeling ill.It wasn't life or death, but I needed to get medication quickly because I was hosting my oldest daughter's very first birthday sleepover that night - her 7th birthday. Don, being the kind and understanding man he was, squeezed me in as quickly as he could, prescribed the meds and recommended something extra to relieve my symptoms to boot. The party was saved thanks to Don and his wonderful wife, nurse Lois. Don also encouraged Mark and I to nurture our relationship with a weekly date night. He swore by it! We often echoed his words as reminders to take care of ourselves as a couple.He was a wise man. We will all miss Don.The world was a better place because of him. Our thoughts, love and prayers are with you now and in the days and weeks to come. Sue, Mark, Hannah and Sarah Adams
I've only just known Don for a few months, but in that time I grew to be so fond of his smile, laugh and kind heart. I will miss him greatly. My thoughts are with you, Lois, and all the family.
It was my pleasure to serve as Dr. McCorvie's office nurse for several years prior to his retirement. He will be remembered as a gentle, compassionate, caring doctor. This was never more apparent than when I accompanied him on house calls. Furthermore, he was a wonderful Christian.
Naomi & Chuck Bietau
My greatest condolences to your family. I had the honor of getting to know Dr. McCorvie through working at Dr. Gupta's office. He was one of the sweetest, most kind natured men I have ever met. I loved when he filled in because we loved to spoil him with sweet treats and movies. He was such a joy to have in our office and the staff and patients all adored him. He will be greatly missed. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Rip Dr Mccorvie

To the McCorvie Family,
Long memories of your family's lives mingling with ours. Your loss is felt and understood. I can see your dad's smile and that is something that will never be taken away. Marcia McNeilly Bethea
I remember seeing Dr. McCorvie fairly often as a kid. I was always getting my fingers shut in doors or crunched in softball or basketball games, and showing up to get them straightened out! I liked his smile then and still when I last saw him.....in church, I think. He will be missed by many.
I know you have wonderful memories; lean on them now. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry to hear of your loss! 15 years of feel-good memories working not only with Dr. Don, but with Lois, Jill, Mary Jo and Lisa. Remember a wild snowmobile ride with Scott in a blizzard, taking me to work! Condolences and prayers sent to the whole family!
Bob and I were reminiscing yesterday about all the quirky sayings your Dr. Don would say. We learned so much from him and enjoyed his never ending smile.
Feel the loving arms of Jesus around you to bring you peace.
So sorry to hear of your loss! So many memories of working 15 years in his office...have worked with all 3 of his girls plus Lois...taken a wild snowmobile ride with Scott to work during a Michigan blizzard...and they are all good memories! Condolences sent to Lois, Scott, Jill, Mary Jo and Lisa! hang in there!
I am so very saddened by Dr. McCorvies passing. Dr. McCorvie delivered my two daughters and I remained his patient until he left his office practice.
My deepest condolences for his family.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
My condolences Scott & Family. Your Dad was such a hoot in the Patient Room. He made the visit a fun one, instead of a scared one. A great man to miss. Keep him in your heart & remember all the good times. Prayers for you.
Doc's going to be missed!!!
I can't imagine having had a better father-in-law. I'm sure that he smiled more than anybody I know, and would light up a room with his grin!
Delivering babies, and healing the sick in his community, serving at the church, teaching at Power Squadron, leading in the association at their lake, and countless other areas of service, he made a huge impact.
He loved to teach....fishing, medicine, woodworking.....anything anybody needed!!
And...he LOVED his kids and grandkids. Nothing made him happier than spending time with his family....except of course his time with Lois. What a great couple. They loved to explore and travel together. I've never seen such a great example of two people who really complete each other.
He's been a tremendous model in my life!
Miss you Doc!!!!!!!!!
Hugs to our Dear Friend Lois and her children. XOXO
Our thoughts and prayers are with you for comfort and peace.
Susan and Tom Barrett
Doctor was such a wonderful, wonderful man! I have so many great memories of him and his fun sense of humor!
You are all in my thoughts and prayers...Mary Chris
Lois and all,
I am so sorry that Dr. Don is gone. It seems that so many of the great people in my life have left me. It will not be the same at the cabin without him. Lois, you and Don knew how to live, You raised a great family and had fun doing it. I'm glad I had the chance to visit at Crosaires. Don seemed really good that day. Lois, take care of yourself.
I will try to see you all before the service. Will need to shuffle some plans a bit.
Scott and family,
Your Dad was certainly one of a kind. A kind spirit and a smile on his face that lit up the whole room. I know he touched thousands of lives and always made a difference for the better. I'm sorry for his passing and wish you all peace and comfort.
