Coach Cory was a legend in my eyes. The best coach I've ever had, he belived in me and gave me hope. I was the only girl on the baseball team, he treated me like the rest of the team. He never threw the ball and less harder, I'm pretty sure he trew it harder. He never gave up on me and the news of him passing is tearing me down, but I know he would want all of us to be strong. He is in the best place anyone could be , God now has a very strong angel.

I did not know Cory personally. I have been told by relatives he was a good man. He made my niece Holly Smith & her children happy & secure. My son Chris Sosebee met him at the July Sosebee family reunion. He stated Cory was a nice guy with genuine interest in baseball,children & sincere love of his loved ones. May God Bless Cory & his loved ones. He will be missed. Heaven gained another Guardian Angel to watch over us. Rest In Peace Cory. Your memory will always be cherished

Cory was such an awesome and amazing person. He had a heart of gold and cared so deeply for his son. He loved coaching baseball and all of those kids loved playing for him. He loved everyone and everyone loved him. My condolences to his son, and the rest of the family during this difficult time of passing.

I always enjoyed Cory so much when he came to church. One time I tripped over my shoe when I passed him to go on the platform and he made fun of me from there on out. When I would walk past him on Sunday mornings (I had to in order to go the stage because he was on the front row), he would stick his leg out and act like he was going to trip me. He just did silly things that made him enjoyable to be around. Even though it has been a while since any of that happened, I still think of him sitting on that front row, and I will never forget him or the smile he always brought to my face.
