Roy William McCormick
January 28, 1946 ~ January 4, 2024 (age 77) 77 Years Old
Roy William McCormick, a cherished family man and esteemed colleague, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2024, at the age of 77, in Hohenwald, Tennessee. Born on January 28, 1946, in Escambia, Florida, to parents Edgar and Clyde E. Stevens McCormick, Roy’s life was marked by devotion to his loved ones, a commitment to service, and an unwavering spirit of friendliness that touched all who knew him.
Roy went on to serve his country with honor in the United States Air Force, while also obtaining a bachelor’s degree. His patriotism and dedication to his nation were further exemplified in his civilian career as an internal review officer for the Department of Defense. Roy's intelligence and friendly demeanor made him a well-regarded figure in his professional circles.
He was a loving husband to his late wife, Karen McCormick, and a guiding light to his children. He took immense pride in his son, Charles R McCormick, and was a caring stepfather to Cyndi Black. Roy was also a doting grandfather to seven grandchildren.
Roy is survived by his siblings, Barbara Prather and Faye Adams. While the loss of his son, Roy William McCormick Jr., and daughter, Regina K. McCormick Zurbay, preceded him in passing, the memories and love they shared continue to bring comfort to the family.
Roy's life was one of engagement and connection. His affable nature was evident in every interaction, and his intelligence was matched only by his willingness to lend a helping hand. He was a man who listened as well as he advised, and his guidance was sought by many.
There are currently no services planned. Adair Funeral & Cremation Services is assisting the family with arrangements.
