  11. I am so sorry, sad and shocked to hear about Cory’s passing. I met Cory the last few seasons playing on the same hockey team. This last season I really got to know Cory and have been able to call him a friend. You will be missed.

    No words can describe the sadness the family & we friends feel, other than shock. Cory will be missed by all, but we all will remember his outgoing attitude, his smile and his professional work ethic in performing his duties as a Crane OE. He is an angel on our shoulders, making sure we fulfill his dreams and wishes. Peace everyone.

    I moved to Calgary in grade 10 and met Cory through high school and played hockey with him through bantam/midget. He was one of my first friends in Calgary and although we lost touch when I moved back to Ontario, I have many fond memories with him. My condolences to his loved ones. Best wishes, Alex Priest.
