He is now an Angel of the Lord in Heaven. Cory attended Chapin High School, graduating in 2015.

Cory enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating on Lake Murray, and other outdoor activities/sports throughout his lifetime. He and his best friend Brad were charter members of the Chapin Bass Fishing Club. Cory enjoyed gardening with his Dad, and loved to travel with his mother, father and sister. He deeply loved spending time with his family and friends. Cory was a member of Chapin Baptist Church. He was a bright, intelligent, charismatic young man with a quick wit and infectious smile who enjoyed making people laugh. He was an avid Alabama (Roll Tide!) and Gamecock fan .
