Following high school graduation Tom attended St. Cloud State University, MN, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in history. He then went to William Mitchell Law School and earned his Juris Doctorate in law. On April 23, 1988, he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Jean Lowry at the Oconomowoc Lake Club, WI. Their marriage would be blessed with two children, Cody and Kayla. Their marriage would later be dissolved after 27 years. Tom moved to Hudson in 1988 and established McCormick Law Office, practicing civil litigation in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Tom loved outdoor adventures, making annual excursions to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) and trips to Florida, Europe, Iceland, and Japan. Tom led an active life, enjoying golf, daily workouts, and driving his sports cars.

Tom was heavily involved in the legal and Hudson communities, serving two terms on the Hudson City Council, Board Chair of Camp St. Croix, and Hudson Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Board of Directors. Tom was awarded the Paul Harris Fellow and Governor’s Service Award in the Hudson Rotary Club. Tom was elected Dean of the Association of Certified Trial Lawyers of Minnesota (ACTLM), a prestigious group of certified trial lawyers.

  1. Local 292 Benefit Office was a client of Tom’s for my entire employment as their Administrator. We became friends and shared a love for Golden’s. RIP my friend!

  2. Tom and Elizabeth always indulged me with my pug when I visited. Sometimes a wee bit close to the ( post ) dining setting, but Tom would wince, with sardonic humor yet ” steady state” would prevail.
    My sadness and shock go out to longtime friends and family about his sudden loss.
    I pray Tom had a strong core of conviction, though very private I know he saw more in nature than just the trees. I pray we meet again, Love Jackie in Tulsa

  3. I’ve known Tom and his brother Tim since we were 2-3 years old. We lived across the street from each other in Anoka, walked to afternoon kindergarten together as 5 year olds, St Stephen’s school grades 1-8, altar boys, summer baseball, sleep overs, lots of memories. My sincere condolences to family.
