MY NEPHEW CORY ON HIS WEDDING DAY
This past week I lost my nephew Cory to Covid-19. He was a healthy, happy 39 year old before he contracted the deadly virus in late December. Cory was born to perform and always loved making people laugh. He was so full of life and he was larger than life.
Cory was always the center of attention – people were just drawn to him. He was intelligent, kind, talented, and hilarious. Cory entertained thousands over the years at Old Tucson as an actor, stuntman, and script writer. Audience members always sought him out after the show to get a photo with him. There was a special magic and charisma about him.
His death didn’t have to happen. Cory lived with his wife and his mom, who was infected with Covid by a stupid co-worker who refused to wear a mask. Cory’s mom unknowingly brought the virus home. All three of them became sick. The women didn’t require hospitalization and recovered. However Cory, who kept testing negative for the virus, continued to get sicker and sicker. He was near death when he was rushed to the hospital on January 10th. He was immediately put on a ventilator in the ICU. A little over two weeks later, he was dead.
Our family is shattered, heartbroken, devastated, crushed. We’ve lost our smiling happy boy Cory.
