I learned when by losing someone close that it’s heartwarming to see all the things people say about your loved one that’s passed on and how much people loved them. With that being said, I haven’t seen Corey in years but he was such an amazing person, loving, caring, a real genuine friend to those he knew. I remember vividly talking and joking around with him and how kind hearted he always was. It’s such a tragic, sad loss for his family, his kids, and the rest of the world that never got to meet him. Praying for comfort for you all.

Pam and Kyrissa - I know you feel like a piece of you is now missing. His smile and antics will always be with you in his kids and may he watch down upon you all and keep you safe. I still remember his awe at my un-hanging his fishing pole at the fishing rodeo when he was about 9. He was such an amazing person and he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

My loving cousin will forever be in our thoughts. He made everyone feel the happiest. I loved the random out of no where calls from him giving me a hard time. It was just a few weeks ago he called just to catch up.
I love you so much!!!

Cory touched many lives, mine included. I will always remember his devilish grin, and light-hearted joking nature. He was a character, and was certainly one-of-a-kind. Anyone who didn’t get to meet him, missed out. Sending love and prayers to his babies, and his family.
