He was much loved and will be greatly missed.

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by a daughter, Amy McPeek; brother Don McPeek; and niece Melissa McPeek Martin.

Survivors include his wife, Jane McKenzie McPeek; one brother, Lee McPeek of Ashland; a granddaughter, Jordan Fannin of Rush; one grandson, Michael Miller of Elizabethtown; nephews Matt (Lynn) McPeek of Boyd County and Jason (Malikca) McPeek of Berea and their children, Zachary and Haven; and nephew Bruce Martin of Garner, N.C.
