Dwight B. MacCormack Jr.
RAYMOND — Dwight Bradburn “Brad” MacCormack Jr., 78, of Raymond, died peacefully at home on April 14, 2012.
He was born on Nov. 6, 1933, in Quincy, Mass., the son of the late Dwight Bradburn MacCormack Sr. and Dorothy (Faye) MacCormack.
Dwight graduated from Bethany College in 1958 with an English degree. He attended Harvard Divinity School and was ordained as a Christian minister in 1960. Dwight served as the Dean of Students at Dean Junior College in Franklin, Mass. In 1973, he and Leighton T. Saville opened Seacrest Manor in Rockport, Mass. For 30 years, they dedicated themselves to providing an atmosphere that was “decidedly small, intentionally quiet.” Their efforts were recognized in 2002 when Seacrest Manor was awarded the Conde Nast Johansens “Award for Excellence.” During his tenure as an innkeeper, Dwight met and maintained
many enduring, dear friendships. In 2004, Dwight retired to his treasured “Peaceful Pines” in Raymond.
Music was among one of Dwight’s many passions. He served for many years on the Board of Directors of the Rockport Music Festival and, most recently, at the Sebago Long Lake Music Festival. He was a supporter of Rockport Public Library and also served on their board of directors.
In addition to his parents, Dwight was predeceased by his sister, Faye MacCormack; and longtime business partner, Leighton T. Saville.
He is survived by many cherished friends.
A graveside service will be held in Beech Grove Cemetery, Rockport on Saturday, May 5, 2012, at 2 p.m., officiated by the Reverend Jamie Howards. Arrangements are being handled by the Burgess and Mackey Funeral Home, 201 Main Street, in Rockport, Mass., and Dolby Funeral Home in Windham. Online condolences may be given at www.greelyfuneralhome.
