YOUNG, Corey Allan

June 10, 1966 – November 14, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our Corey on Monday, November 14, 2011 at the age of 45.

Corey was born and raised in Sherwood Park, graduating from Archbishop Jordan in 1982. He moved to Calgary and embraced his career and friendships with Spartan Controls. Although his residence was in Calgary, his heart was always with the Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Eskimos. His first part time job was with the Edmonton Oilers on game nights, working in the press box along with his best friend Terry Goy.

Gabe Fischbach (Corey’s soul mate and life partner) is heartbroken and will miss him dearly, as well as his beloved and cherished sons Travis and Jason (Faryn). Corey also leaves his loving grandmother Leone Young. Grieving Corey, from Cambodia, is his brother Geordie (Pheak) and nephew Alexander. His mom, Dorothy will always be grateful for the love she and Corey shared.

Corey was predeceased by his Dad, Al in 2007.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Eastside Memorial Chapel (5388 Memorial Drive N.E.) on Friday November 18, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    I guess no matter how old we get, we never can easily adapt to losing our loved ones, that shared a large part of our everyday lives, and provided so much pleasure and love. However the good times and happy memories of Corey no one can ever take away and they are a constant source of comfort.
    Always remembered and Never Forgotten.
    Love you Corey…

  12. To my dearest family, some things I’d like to say…
    but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
    I’m writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
    Here, there’s no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

    Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight.
    Remember that I’m with you every morning, noon and night.
    That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
    God picked me up and hugged me and He said, “I welcome you.”

    It’s good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
    As for your dearest family, they’ll be here later on.
    I need you here badly; you’re part of my plan.
    There’s so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

    God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
    And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
    And when you lie in bed at night, the day’s chores put to flight.
    God and I are closest to you….in the middle of the night.

    When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
    because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
    But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
    Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

    I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
    But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.
    But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o’er.
    I’m closer to you now, than I ever was before.

    There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
    but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
    It was always my philosophy and I’d like it for you too…
    that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

    If you can help somebody who’s in sorrow and pain,
    then you can say to God at night……”My day was not in vain.”
    And now I am contented….that my life has been worthwhile,
    knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

    So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
    just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
    When you’re walking down the street, and you’ve got me on your mind;
    I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

    And when it’s time for you to go…. from that body to be free,
    remember you’re not going…..you’re coming here to me.

  13. We always called him “Paco” and were as close as Brothers at one time back in the early 80’s. Right when the Oilers were at their best and we had to endure his Team Loyalty to the Max!
    He will be missed by all that got to know his special sense of humor and charm.
