      Just found this so had to comment..
      Corey was my son-in-law. Alcohol killed a really great person. He was a friend, a husband..for a few years…and a father to a wonderful gentle and humble son…who has grown into an intelligent young man. Corey will always be remembered with love❣

    I also worked with Corey at Denny’s he was kind gentle and level headed. An inspiration to my son and his music. A good friend. May your eternal rest keep your spirits high and your music going.

    Corey was an amazing person. I can still conjure his laugh perfectly. He had an easy smile and a charismatic, loveable disposition. He was a supremely talented musician and a loyal friend. I still think of him often. Words fail to describe how much he is missed.

    Corey was my brother. I will always remember the genuine smile he would get on his face when he would see me. I met him through my brother Zoser. They are now together again. I love you both Corey and Zoser, you will forever be in my heart.
