Whilley McCormick of Ponca City passed away at his home in Ponca City 
at 2:15 p.m. on July 19, 2018. He was 56. Whilley was born in Clinton, 
Okla., on Jan. 30, 1962 to his parents, Thelma Lee Bailey and Whilley 
Gene McCormick. Whilley enjoyed fishing, camping, cookouts, eating (he 
definitely had an appetite!) and taking his buddy Steve’s boat out to 
fish. He loved kids and animals, especially dogs, and they loved him 
just as much! He was not afraid to ask for anything, as he always 
said, “A closed mouth don’t get fed.” He was funny and quick-witted, 
and he joked around and laughed a lot. He would tease people by 
saying, “There it ain’t” and he would get us every time — we were 
gullible to his wit. But his best traits were his big heart (he would 
give the shirt off his back, even if it wasn’t his) and his love for 
dogs and kids. There was such a purity and honesty about his 
relationship with them. He is survived by his son, Jeremy McCormick of 
Ponca City, and brother Clyde Wayne McCormick. He is also survived by 
his bonus family, including Ann Marie Robert’s grandkids; as well as 
his bonus daughters Jessica Roberts, Christa Roller, Jamie Roller and 
Cari Roberts, and bonus grandkids Serenity, Hannah, Aaron, Caleb, 
Carma, Madison, Faith, Gunnar and Olivia, and many more friends. He is 
preceded in death by his parents, brother Roy Dee McCormik, and his 
late companion, Ann Marie Roberts. A service will be held at a later 
date. Arrangements are under the kind guidance of Amy Stittsworth
