Obituary Real Cormier

Real “Coco” Cormier passed peacefully on June 5, 2020. A famous harness racer, he and his wife Tracy have owned the Pinehurst Track Restaurant for the past 24 years.

He came to the US in his early 20s and began his career as a harness trainer and driver. He raced in the New York/New Jersey area and in his career had over several thousand wins. Coco and Tracy moved down to Pinehurst so he could train horses and decided to buy the restaurant on the grounds. They quickly became a local favorite with their famous blueberry pancakes.

Coco was loved by all that knew him. He is survived by his wife, Tracy, and their daughter, Danielle. He is also survived by his two other children; his son Lee and his wife Linda and his daughter Darcy and her husband Tom Reynolds; grandchildren Adrian, Briana, and Calvin, and great-grandchildren Jaxon and Tanner.
