He was preceded in death by a special uncle, Dennis “Red” Casey, and his unwavering companion, Cooper the roofing dog.
Cory graduated from Normal Community West High School in 1999. He attended Illinois State University before starting his own successful business in 2008.
He was a self-made man. He poured himself into Casey Roofing Inc. and had an outstanding reputation in the community. He worked hard and played hard. He enjoyed playing euchre, going boating, and fishing every chance he got. Cory's true legacy lives on in his children. There was nothing he adored more than raising them with Megan by his side. His proudest moments were those spent entertaining his family and friends. He was ornery, loyal, dependable and true. He was the kind of person that people gravitated to. Heaven became a lot more fun the night Cory arrived.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family for an education fund for his children.
