Cory and I were in the same classes when he attended Nishna Valley. He was always so quiet. Always so nice. My deepest sympathy for your loss. Angi (Smith) Pettit

Cory was my best man in my first wedding although we had lost touch over the years I had thought about him often we were really close there for awhile. I kept track of him through his sister Michele. Wish we could of reconnected but that’s how life goes. Rest in piece my old friend.
