Corey passed away suddenly on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Born in Columbia, he was the middle child of Jessica L. Hunt and the grandson of John Edward Hunt, Jr. and Jerri Hunt. Corey was full of humor and charisma and could light a room with his gorgeous smile. He was currently a junior at the Academy for Success and had previously attended Chapin High School where he was an awesome wrestler on the Chapin Wrestling team and also played football for Chapin. His passion was song writing and singing. He loved his music and making beats. Corey has music and videos on Youtube and Sound Cloud as “Itz Bentley”. He enjoyed being outdoors fishing, swimming and wake boarding on Lake Murrray at his home.

Surviving in addition to his mother and grandparents are his sister, Shayla Hunt; his little brother, Jaylen Hunt; his great-grandmother, Carolyn Hunt; and the love of his life, Zayda Baylies.

Corey will be dearly missed by not only family, but so many others as well. May we one day see you again.

Corey,
The tiniest member of our G.O.L.D. Team when he was here with us at Nursery Road Elementary. I still remember that shy, radiant smile of yours. You have touched many lives along the way and have left lasting impressions on many through your musical talent. You will greatly be missed.
I pray much for your family and friends that the Lord will strengthen their hearts and for them to hold on to the memories as they go forth in this life.
Rest peacefully, Corey
You are missed
Ms. Sirea Morris

It took me a minute to figure out what to say. You are truly missed already. My last memory was when you came into the office on Tuesday, February 18th saying Ms. Currence I need a whole new I.D. and here's a 10. He then said don't worry the other 5. I told him, no son I will bring your change to you. He would help pay for someone's else i.d. if they didn't have to give. I remember him bringing some Chicken butt donuts and sharing them. Corey thank you for being apart of our lives. Ms. Jessica, thank you for sharing your son with us. We truly loved him. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you and your family. Son, you will be missed. Rest on.

The first time I met this young guy my little sister brought him to my attention. He would come to my house and record music and freestyle every where we went. The first time I herd him freestyle I realize his talent was a gift from god . I can tell he was very passionate about his music just like myself. I looked at him as a lil brother and always gave him good advice to further his career. I seen i a lot of me in this young guy. His death really hit home for me. On top of seeing my little sister in tears/and hurt . We love you man get your rest young king

I have known Corey since he was about 6 or 7 years old and while it's been years since I've seen him my heart is broken behind this unforeseen tragedy. Jessica, I cannot imagine the burden of your heart and I want you to know I am here for you and the kids. I have followed Corey over the years with his love for music and he was such a talented young man. You will certainly be missed here Corey, rest in Paradise sweetie.

My Sweet Sweet Son Corey, I'm sure going to miss you and your beautiful smile. I'll no longer be able to wake up and go on the front porch to hear you singing walking around the front yard looking up at me smiling. I will always love you more than words could ever express. I know you are at peace now and no longer struggling within yourself. Momma loves you sweet Corey boy and you are always in my heart. Rest In Heaven my sweet sweet boy...
