Obituary for Donnell James McCormack

Donnell James McCormack, Jr., 64, of Atlanta, Georgia, died Saturday, September 16, 2017. Don was born in Memphis, Tennessee to Donnell James McCormack and Heathie Butler McCormack on December 29, 1952. Mr. McCormack was a graduate of Christian Brothers High School in Memphis. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Southwestern University, now Rhodes College, and his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Memphis. Don practiced law in Memphis with the firm McDonald, Kuhn, Smith, Miller, and Tait, and then joined Holiday Inn Worldwide where he served as Vice President and Associate General Counsel, and moved his family to Atlanta with the corporation in 1991. He later joined the firm Kilpatrick Stockton LLP as partner, and went into sole practice until the time of his passing. He was a former member of the Tennessee Bar Association, American Bar Association, The Memphis Country Club, past Board Member of The Vinings Club, and current member of The Georgia Bar Association. Don especially enjoyed family get-togethers, homemade dinners, SEC football, and always, his dogs. He appreciated a good story as much as he enjoyed telling them. Many friends and colleagues viewed Don as a mentor, both professionally and to others who sought his guidance. Don is survived by his wife of 37 years, Helen Bozeman McCormack, his daughters who were the joy of his life, Helen "Lawrence" McCormack and Mary Butler McCormack of Atlanta, his sister Heathie Colvett (John) of Memphis, Tennessee, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins. A memorial service will be held on September 30th at 2:00pm at Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna, Georgia. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to The Atlanta Humane Society, The American Heart Association, or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
