He was born August 5, 1944 in Wichita, Kansas, the third son of John P. and Armella (Leiker) McCormick.  He graduated from Great Bend High School.  On November 28, 1964 he was united in marriage to his high school girlfriend, Gloria Ann Scheck.  She preceded him in death on November 15, 2015 after 51 years of marriage.  Kenny managed a Phillips 66 station in Emporia, worked for his dad in construction, and for 30 years worked for Schult Homes in Plainville, retiring in 1998.  Kenny and Gloria then moved to Hays and for a little more than three years Kenny worked part-time for the City of Hays.  He was a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, the St. Mary’s Third Degree Knights of Columbus Council #6984, and the Bishop Cunningham Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus.  He was a jack-of-all-trades and handyman who would lend a helping hand when friends and family needed home maintenance and repairs.  Kenny enjoyed woodworking, building, whittling, and tinkering with many projects.
