Corey looked forward to their annual trip to Maine. He also enjoyed checking out flea markets. Other hobbies of Corey’s were maple sugaring and woodworking. Oct. 27 was he and his wife’s 55th anniversary. She explained that they chose a fall wedding as it was a slow time on the farm, and more convenient. Always all about the farming. That was Corey.
