Corey was born on August 8, 1990 at the Stettler Hospital. He also lived in Camrose with his family before moving to Ontario at the age of 1. In Ontario, Corey attended a few different public schools and always made friends wherever he went. Corey enjoyed sports growing up; even though he was just over 5 feet tall, Corey was always 6’6” in his head. Moving back to Stettler, at the age of 13, Corey made many friends fast and was nicknamed “Sprout” by his closest friends. Once you met Corey you would never forget him. At the age of 16, Corey was diagnosed with having a brain tumour on his pituitary gland. He spent about a week in the Edmonton Stollery Children’s Hospital going through surgery and recovery. Corey acted as if nothing had happened, he never let it affect him or who he was and he always stayed strong and positive. Corey graduated from Wm. E. Hay Composite High School in 2008. At the age of 18 Corey moved out of his aunt and uncle’s house with big dreams and the strong urge to be independent. He would talk about joining the Army or being a mechanic, but was in no rush. He stayed with his older sister on and off throughout the last 3 ½ years. Corey roomed with his best friends and brother at one point, as well as living on his own in a nice little basement suite that was perfect for him.
Corey started working at the age of 10 selling chocolate bars in Kingston, Napanee, Toronto and even Nova Scotia. In Stettler he worked at A&W, KFC, SK Welding and at the steam train! It was here that you could usually find him entertaining passengers on train days and the staff on maintenance days. Always singing and telling jokes, Corey made you want to smile. Corey didn’t like asking for help, but was always the first to offer it. He could sell a chocolate bar to a diabetic. He was blessed with the gift of gab and could get away with doing things that a lot of us couldn’t! Corey never had a solid plan, but he always had a dream. Corey would want to be remembered as a decent person, a person who had fun and lived life to the fullest. All Corey ever wanted out of life was for everyone to be proud of him.
Corey’s short life ended on Saturday, February 11, 2012 when he passed away unexpectedly of natural causes at the age of 21. Corey is survived by numerous family members and many very dear friends. A memorial service was held on Saturday, February 18, 2012 in the Heartland Chapel of Stettler Funeral Home with Reverend Jack Schulze officiating. A slideshow of Corey’s life accompanied by some of his favorite songs was lovingly prepared and presented by his sister and brother. Corey’s very dear friends paid tribute to him with special words of remembrance. Following the service family and friends joined together for a time of fellowship and a luncheon. If friends desire, donations may be made to Stollery Children’s Hospital or Red Deer SPCA.

My Brother and I were deeply saddened when we heard of the passing of Corey. When we first moved to Stettler to start our Cafe, we noticed Corey working at the KFC. We were quite impressed by his professionalism and his FANTASTIC customer service! We said to ourselves that He was exactly the type of young person we would like to work in our Cafe. Last Fall we got to know Corey better, as he moved in across the lane from us. He was a polite, well-mannered young Man. We will miss his infectious smile that brightened our day. Our deepest condolences go out to his Family.

It was a pleasure to meet Corey recently, after speaking with him for only an hour I was able to appreciate what a nice, well spoken and motivated young person he was. There is no doubt he will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by anyone who was fortunate enough to know him. My thoughts are with you, his family and friends.

Dear Easton family:
Our son Travis went to school with Corey. We had friends lose a daughter a month before her wedding a few years ago. It broke my heart for them. No one should ever have to suffer such a tremendous loss.
John 5:28,29 tells us that there will be a time when our dead loved ones would be brought back to life here on earth. May you find comfort in the Bible's hope to see Corey alive and well again very soon. Please feel free to contact us.
Please accept our deepest sympathy over your tremendous loss. May you find comfort in whatever hope you hold dear.
Lee Hallett
