He worked on an oil rig in North Dakota and moved to Utah and worked for Union Pacific Railroad as a journeyman carman which consisted of inspecting trains in the yard and welding or fixing any problems. When they had lay offs he’d work either as a mechanic or welded at Ornamental Iron and Fabrication and went various places welding railing and managed one of the crews that built Smokey Canyon Mine facility.

There was nothing Corey couldn’t do. He loved wood working and could build anything and everything and mainly at Christmas time making shelves and toys for the kids and grandkids. He loved dirt biking and driving his Chevelle in the car shows. He loved being a Steward of God’s land and took pride cultivating the soil and farming his place, but most of all, He loved his family. They were his “Priceless Treasures”, and they loved him too. That love will last forever. We will miss him dearly.
