Cory - I have no words. You were always such a gentle soul. You were easy to talk to and so much fun to be around. You always made me laugh and put a smile on everyone's face. We laughed so hard in high school and even after graduation. You were so kind. I really wish I could have seen you more. Thank you for being you.

Cory has always been one of my closest friends. He knew me so well and cared about everyone with so much passion. Even though we didn’t get to see each other very often anymore it always felt like we picked up right where we left off as if we had just seen each other yesterday. I will always remember all the fun nights we had together goofing off, going fishing, working on his broken cars, or even just hanging out doing nothing and having fun. You didn’t need to do anything special to have a good time with him. I met Cory in 6th grade and we were instantly friends. We just understood each other and he always made me feel so special in his life. I will miss you so much Cory and I love you buddy. See you on the other side some day.

Cory, I loved the times we spent together! There were many throughout the years. These to me were extra special after Grampy passed. You and I had so much fun laughing at the Harlem Globetrotters, watching Star Wars, or Harry Potter and eating popcorn, cooking together and concocting recipes, and setting presentation tables for the holidays. You sippin The Kraken and me sippin wine made for a fun time! We worked on projects together (I should say you worked, and I watched)! You were so mechanically inclined and could do just about anything...a jack of all trades kind of guy.
I’ll miss your smile and that ornery twinkle in your eye.
Rest In Peace, grandson. You are forever now in your eternal home.

Cory, I always enjoyed our times together. We could talk about anything. You, Jeremy and Foster were always tearing up the pavement somewhere on your skateboards. Our times at Lakeside I enjoyed so much with all three of you little boys then. We closed that park down many a time. You were such a gentle soul and gifted in so many ways. You amazed me the things you could do. The years have slipped by and everyone has gone in different directions. The bond never left. You are free now and may you have happiness and eternal peace. Love you, Grams

My best friend of 18 years. You were like a brother to me. From when I moved to Evergreen in 6th Grade. We have been through thick and thin together and have had countless fun times together. From car camping in a parking lot to be the first car for the Pikes Peak hill climb to Go-Karting, we were always there for each other when we needed to take a break from life. Words will never express how much I will miss you and love you.

Cory, I'll never forget the year your Mom and I spent all day making Christmas cookies. It was a disaster because we "thought" we could make multiple varieties while enjoying a bottle of wine....or maybe 2 :o) However, you and Ryan were such good sports, and although the majority of the cookies came out really really bad, you tried each one and said they were good. That's because you are such a sweet and caring person and didn't want to hurt our feelings. Looking back, I'll never forget the look on your face as you bit into some of them! It was hilarious.......Rest in peace now Cory, you are safe and loved always.

I spent some of my best childhood years with Cory. My one and only sibling. We didn’t get much time together as adults, and for that, I’m so sorry. Cory, I hope you’ve found some peace. I’ll always love you.
