We are so sorry for the loss of Cory. Fond memories of him at the brewery. I used to chew his butt for skateboarding down our steps. When we last saw him we joked about that. Will be sadly missed. On to the big brewery in the sky. Gladly donated to the SPCA. Rodabaughs'

My heart goes out to you "Pepper" and the family. Losing a child is one of the hardest things to go through. Never get over it but in time you get through it. I will always remember you Corey as one of my grandson's best friends and your visits to our home and the two of you in the pool having so much fun. You were like a member of the family and I loved having you in our life. Gone too soon. Loved by many. Love, Mary "Doland" Lisowski

Corey was so much a part of our family; a constant presence at our house while growing up; another son. We loved him like our own. Our hearts and thoughts are with his mom, siblings, family members, and all of his closest friends at this incredibly difficult time. We have all been so profoundly touched by his life; his soul. True story: Corey was the only person we've ever known who could break a bass guitar string simply by playing; in fact, the last time we were together, we had a good laugh over that memory. Every time we pick up a banjo, now and forever, we will think of you. Our hearts are broken, yet still able to hold so much love... somehow, incredibly, the love does not spill from the many cracks and pieces. Now and always, we'll hold you close, Draker. “There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.” – Mahatma Gandhi

With deepest sympathy - Barb and Bob Hubbell, and the entire Hubbell family
