Salem man dies on NH fishing trip


Cornish’s funeral is today. In addition to his wife, he is survived by daughters, Jennifer, of Danvers, and Lisa Street; son-in-law Gary, of Stratham, N.H.; and two grandchildren, Holly and Colin.

Before retirement, Lora Cornish said her husband was a maintenance man at ITW Devcon in Danvers for many years.

He loved to walk and ride his bike around their Willow Avenue neighborhood, as well as read his Bible and pass Bibles out to neighbors, she said.

He volunteered for many years at Salem and Middleton jails and would play his guitar and host a Bible study with prisoners, Lora Cornish said.

The Cornishes and the Trainors also used to sing for residents at local nursing homes, she said.
