    I remember Kory as my first grade student. He was a joy to have in class. I loved his sense of humor and that sweet smile. So sorry to hear of his passing and may God give you comfort during this time.

    While Kory worked for Coastal Glass & Hardware, he worked numerous times for our company, Dimension Design & Construction. Kory was always the friendliest and most professional guy. He took great pride in his work. He and his buddy, Nick were always reliable and did excellent work. He talked to me me regularly about movies. He was truly a kind soul. He will be missed greatly by my wife, Lisa & I.

    Knew Kory for many years. We spent alot of our early twenties together, seeing each almost every day including holidays. Hands down one of the most genuine persons I've ever had the privilege of meeting and knowing. R.I.P buddy. Many prayers to the family and friends surrounding him.
