Cori Scott Featherston, 26, died June 3rd, 2018. He was born November 12th, 1991 in Dallas, TX, the son of Cliff and Deanna Featherston. He attended Grand Prairie schools and graduated from Grand Prairie High School in 2011, where he was a member of the football team. He was currently looking forward to the future and eager for the success he had come to find in his life. He recently bragged that he “had it all figured out”.

Cori was an avid sports fan. When asked who his favorite NFL team was, he had no problems letting you know it was the Philadelphia Eagles. In fact, if you disagreed you would shortly come to find out why you were wrong. He also loved basketball player, LeBron James and whatever team he happened to be playing on at any given time…whether they were terrible or not. In addition to loving sports, Cori also had an infatuation with name brand tennis shoes and socks. It was just sort of his thing, he wasn’t afraid to tell you if your shoes didn’t make the cut. Video games were another big part of Cori’s life. You could most often find him gaming in his spare time. The most important things in Cori’s life were his family and friends. He loved and cared for others deeply, which is evident in the number of people who are devastated by his passing. Always with a smile on his face, he pushed through life like there were no obstacles in his way. Cori was a kind and gentle soul and the lasting effects of his compassion for others will live on in his memory. He will be greatly missed and most definitely never forgotten.

Cori is preceded in death by his Grandmother, Wanda Merle Featherston.

Fly high sweet Cori. Watch over your family as they try to move on in life without you. You have left so many memories for them to share with your nieces and nephews. You will forever live on in their lives. Your contagious sense of humor and radient smile with the kindest heart ever will forever be missed. Until we see you again sweet boy, enjoy your granny, mamaw and Papaw and my sweet Momma your Aunt Barbara. I can hear it all now as y'all watch us here.. I know there will be many laughs and jokes.. Rejoice, walk those Golden Streets until you see one of us heading your way. Meet us at the Golden Gates on our special day. We love you, and cry for ourselves that we lost you. But we know you are in an awesome place. Because we know God takes only the BEST at first. But we will see you again.. Eternally, Marty
