June 23, 1954 — January 28, 2024

Warner Robins

Joseph “Joe” Cormier, Sr., 69, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 28, 2024. 

Joe was born on June 23, 1954, in Tupper Lake, New York to the late Reginald and Florence Cormier.  Early on in childhood, he lived in the Potsdam Parishville area where he started school, then moved back to Tupper Lake. He attended and graduated from Tupper Lake High School in 1972. He went on to work at various places in Syracuse, NY and Auburn, CA prior to returning to Tupper Lake in 1980. From there, he worked for the Town of Altamont Highway Department for 5 years, The Village of Tupper Lake Water Department for 27 years leading to his retirement and worked part time as both a relief fire driver and police dispatcher. After his retirement in New York, Joe moved to Warner Robins to be close to his beloved daughter and grandson, as family was incredibly important to him. Here, he worked for Sizemore Security, retiring again in 2019 with the rank of Major and volunteered for WRALL. 

Joe had a strong faith in the Lord and served on the vestry at the local Anglican Church “Christ the Redeemer”. He was active in school, played football and was President of Student Council and active in his local parish. He was respected and known for his sense of humor and helping wherever there was a need. Joe was involved in many interesting activities and volunteer opportunities. He spent 4 years with the Columbian Squires, was a Assistant Chief and EMT with the Tupper Lake Rescue Squad for 7 years, was the assistant scout master for Boy Scout Troop 11, a member of the Tupper Lake Fire Department, Captain at the Tupper Lake auxiliary police unit, spent 25 years as the president of the Tupper Lake Village employees CSEA Unit I, held offices of both Executive Vice President and Local President with the Franklin County CSEA Local 817, worked for the Tupper Lake Highway Department, and was on the statewide board of directors for CSEA Local 100 for two terms. If all of this wasn’t enough, he also held the position of Tupper Lake dog control officer for several years. In his free time, Joe enjoyed traveling, Buffalo Bills, UGA football, and grilling.  His presence will be deeply missed by those he held dear. 

In addition to his parents, Joe was preceded in death by his daughter, Jennifer MacPherson. 

His memory will forever be treasured by his wife, Linda Stapleton Meade-Cormier; his son, Joseph Cormier, Jr. (Christine); grandsons, John MacPherson, Jr. and Blake Meade; brother, Paul Cormier; along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, and other loving family members and friends.
