Mike was born April 7, 1959 in Waco, Texas to W.V. & Joyce McCormick. He married Vicki Fannie in September of 1982 and had 2 children, Michael and Brittany. When Mike was a young man he was a manager at several fast food chains, he loved people. He moved to Oklahoma to work at Mathis Brothers Furniture & found his true passion was in sales. He was always a people person and very outgoing, but he had a knack for selling. His friends and co-workers could see his drive and he was offered a position at Continental Cars of Mercedes & he quickly became one of their top salesman, from there he moved to Colorado and sold Mercedes. While in Colorado, he enjoyed riding his Harley through the mountains & enjoyed the outdoors. He made many friends, but he missed Texas & wanted to get closer to his family. He moved back to Waco & used his Mercedes relationships to start his own company MWM Transport. He loved what he did & the people that he did it for loved him. He loved his 2 children and 5 grandchildren & took them fishing & camping. Those that knew him know that he lived his life to the fullest, when he played- he played hard, when he worked- he worked hard and when he loved- he loved hard. Family meant a lot to him and though he sometimes acted tough, he was truly a soft-hearted caring guy that loved all of his family & friends. Even towards the end of his life, he had a bright smile with his big blue eyes and a determination and positive attitude that many would not have, he was ready to fight but God was ready for him to come home. He lost his battle with cancer in less than 5 weeks, but he did not suffer and now he is at peace.

Proceeded in death by his father & mother. Survivors include son, Michael McCormick & wife Kiley of Edmond, OK and daughter, Brittany McCormick of Waco; Grandchildren- Chase, Lennox, Cali, Elli, Sloane; Sisters- Terry Birkes & husband, Brett and Liz Cummings & husband, Bill; Nieces- Christi Blackburn & Jackie Jobe and Nephew-Kyle Cummings; Great niece McKenzie Jobe; Great aunts- Helen Watts & Mildred Montgomery.
