Royce Colyar McCormick Jr.


Royce Colyar McCormick, Jr., 60, of Utica, KY, entered the gates of heaven on Sunday, May 7th surrounded by his family. He was a lifelong farmer, generous friend, loving dad and pappy, and Nancy’s world. He brought a smile to everyone’s face and if you knew him, you loved him.


Bub has been reunited with his heavenly family, his father, Royce, his mother, Nancy, his brother, John, his best friend, David Wink whom he loved like a brother, and all the great friends he has lost along the way.


He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Nancy; favorite daughters, Hanna and Miranda; favorite son-in-law, Travis; most cherished and favorite grandchildren, Avery, Zoey, and Colyar; sisters, Ginny (Duane) Gatton and Sabrina (Steve) Coke; and multiple nieces and nephews.


At Bub’s request, there will be no services or visitation. To honor him, he wanted everyone to go to Jr.’s Market in Utica and order a Bub’s Usual Sandwich. Bub said to tell everyone, “See you later, it was fun while it lasted.”


Care by Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
