I worked with Korey at Robin, he was such a good person. Always said hi and a smile on his face. He will be missed. Prayers for the family.
sorry for your loss, Korey was a good friend of ours, we both worked with him, prayers for the family.
Words can’t express the pain I am feeling right now
for the person that has called me mom for over 40 years
even though he had a mother. His mother and I are really
good friends so I appreciate her sharing him with me.
He was the most manerable and polite person who always
Wore a smile on his face. God called him to take his
Journey home so all we can do is accept it but it
Going to be hard with him not here. Prayers for all his
Family and you have my condolences.
Rest In Heaven you will be missed
I only knew Kory for a year and a half when I transferred to HCD for the short time I knew him I still thought of him as a good friend. Kory and I shared different food recipes and things. I gave him some of our home made spaghetti sauce and he always shared what ever he had. He will be sadly missed and I am sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers.
We worked with Korey. He was the nicest sweetest man ever. He would always ask us how our son Wyatt was and he even got him a few birthday & Christmas presents a few times & Wyatt loved them. We sure are going to miss you at work. Going to miss that big smile of yours, your laugh and all your jokes you told. Work isn’t going to be the same without you!! R.I.P Korey
We love you man
I did not know Korey; however, I grew up with Sally and her siblings and delivered newspapers to her parents. My deepest condolences to Sally and God bless Korey’s extended family.
