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.

The funeral will be at 1 p.m. Monday, April 1, 2013, at Miller Funeral Home by the Rev. Raymond Stephens. Burial will follow at Golden Oaks Memorial Gardens.

The family will receive friends after 11:30 a.m. Monday at the funeral home.
