Corey was born on April 7, 1931 in Danby, Vermont the son of Merritt D. (Tink) and Velma (Corey) Brown.

Corey was a farmer all his life, and not only was it his livelihood but it was his passion. He was always ready to talk farming with anyone who would listen. 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.
