Corey Lane Wilson

Exceptional and caring, Corey was a good person with a special heart. He was loved by all that met him, possessing a magnetic quality and engaging spirit that made people fall in love with him and gravitate to him in an extraordinary way. A hard worker, he was proud of his family and his relationship with them: writing a research paper in school about how much he looked up to his dad; always making time to play with his sisters in his youth, even the occasional dress up game; stopping by his grandparent’s house just to visit and check on them. Corey was someone that you could count on; he always wanted to help people, often looking for opportunities to serve and make time for others in even the smallest of ways. A man of many hobbies, he would take up something with all his heart and energy: hockey, golf, airsoft and paintball, but fishing and hunting were always his favorites.
