I'm so sorry to hear of Corey's passing Deb. He was a great guy. I miss talking to him at the Holmes County tractor pulls.

Such sad news for anyone who had the blessed chance to have known this man. We were fortunate to have had Corey in our lives thru work for years his heart was huge and always put others needs ahead of his own even in times of personal struggle. Our payers go out to all his family and friends he will be missed but never forgotten God gained an angel with a strong passion for others.

There are people in this world that come into your lives and leave such a impact on your heart, Cory was just that kind of person who just came for a moment but left us with such a wonderful gift and impact. His love and care for our kids at Nick Amster Workshop was such a gift. He really took the time to connect with our kids and put smiles on their faces, brought laughter and joy to each one of them. He was just a all around nice guy who we truly felt as a friend to us especially our son Joey who will miss Cory so much. I know that Cory is now pain free, no more illness, no more medical procedures. He’s been given the ultimate healing. He impacted our lives with his presence just for a little while but our hearts forever. God Bless his family and please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers!!
