Bernard J. "Mac" McCorry, 75, of Sun City West, passed away on May 3, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Chicago, IL on May 11, 1938, he was the son of the late Leroy and Mary McCorry. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Charlotte "Sherry" McCorry. His son, Thomas McCorry and as his wife, Dena, of Charleston, SC; his daughter, Beth Wimsatt and her husband, Bill, of Littleton, CO; two grand-daughters Briana and Genevieve Wimsatt of Littleton, CO; one brother Bob McCorry of Mission Viejo, CA and one sister Pat Schaefer of Des Plains, IL along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by two sisters, Elaine King and Lucille Angelo, and one brother Leonard McCorry. Mac was proud to serve the Marine Corps from 1955 - 1959. Although Mac was born in Chicago, he stayed in the Washington DC Metropolitan area where he met Sherry. He worked for over 30 years in the construction industry and after retirement he enjoyed nearly 11 years as a Fairfax County school bus driver for special needs children. The little kids loved their "Mr. Mac". Mac was a member of the Elks for many years and belonged to the ITTC Country Club in Virginia. He loved to play cards and had a beautiful voice but in later years sang mostly for his own pleasure in the shower and around the house. Although not much of a talker he had a quick wit and sense of humor. His hobbies included jigsaw puzzles, softball and bowling and of course golf. He could not begin his day until he completed the daily crossword puzzle. In 2005 Mac and Sherry moved from Fairfax, VA to Sun City West, AZ where Mac enjoyed his passion for golf. Mac will be sorely missed. The memorial service and military honors will be held at the Camino del Sol Funeral Chapel on May 8th, 2014 at 1:00pm. 13738 Camino del Sol, Sun City West.
