    Corey was a great friend. Always had a smile when I seen him. Thoughts and prayers to the family. He will be greatly missed.

    We grew up together out maple grove. He was a childhood friend. We were always throwing a football around or riding bikes. He will be missed. My love and support go out to family and friends.

    I've known Corey since the mid 90's at Mid South Mfg. I even got to work with him for a while at Parker Hannifin in Trumann. We often rode our motorcycles to work together. He was a good friend and a really good guy. He will be missed. My heart goes out to his family.

  7. John Dickson, AKA J.D. Or Sam., TRUMANN says

    The better a friend, the harder it is to say goodbye. I and many others have lost a great companion. A highly intelligent man who was always willing to share his experience and lend a helping hand to anyone with a problem. I met Cory later in life. Even though he was often in pain and had the wearies of getting older, I don't remember ever seeing him without a smile on his face and a cheerful attitude. Goodby my friend. You will be missed by one and all. John Dickson, AKA J.D. Or Sam.

    Judy, Corey’s mom and dad and other family I want you to know that Corey was a great person and a great friend to have. He is one of the smartest guys I have ever known. Only the lord knows why he had to leave so soon but I look forward to the day we meet again. Gods speed buddy!!! Prayers

    Patricia and Roy: I will never say I know how you feel. I can say that having a one and only male child that I have already only magined how you feel. Please know how very sad we are and that it's still a shock.i know there are no words at this time I could say to ease your pain: but I know GOD will put no more on us than we can stand. I will be thinking about you a lot. I will never forget Corey. He was a talented young man and was very much like his mother. He will be missed by many.
