It is with great sadness and terrible pain that we announce Cory, aged 68, passed away on January 15, 2021. Cory passed peacefully with his wife, Doris, by his bedside.
Cory is survived by his wife, Doris; children, Nancy (Bill), and Jordan (Margaret); brothers, Garry (Pat), Murray (Lei Anne); extended family, and great friends.
Cory grew up in Brandon, MB and moved to Winnipeg in 1973, where he met the love of his life, and began his career as a hair stylist.
After starting a family, Cory's desire for a bigger yard for their family of four led them to move in 1984 to Ferndale, their almost forever home. Summers were spent playing family games of catch, frisbee and badminton. Winters drew them to the river, minutes away, for tobogganing and ice skating. Cory was a devoted father and loving husband, and almost all his hobbies included the whole family.
Though he cherished his years of building bonds with clients while clipping and styling hair, Cory spoke fondly of his second career with the maintenance team at St. Charles Country Club. He was often seen on all fours, meticulously scouring the bunker for any inconsistencies. This led to Cory being affectionately nicknamed, C-Dog.
After 34 years on Ferndale, Cory and Doris adopted the country life, moving to Ste. Anne, just minutes from his daughter, son-in-law, and step-grandchildren, Michael and Calvin. Without an indoor woodstove, preparing for, building and tending to outdoor bonfires quickly became his favourite pastime.
His son and daughter-in-law kept their camper close by, and spent weekends at a time throughout the spring, summer and fall. In his final year, he met so many new friends and spent so many hours with family. Even though all hoped it was the first of many, the family remains incredibly grateful for the time spent together.
Cory cherished his wife and children beyond measure, and was overjoyed in welcoming Bill and Margaret into the family. The other love of his life was Charlie, his beloved rescue dog.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Expressions of condolence for Cory can be made at
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Winnipeg Humane Society, or your favourite pet rescue organization.

  • I am a former co worker of Cory's & it was very sad to hear of his passing. Working at Southdale Hairstylists for many years with Cory was very memorable. He always looked after us was ready for us in the mornings he even went as far as taking apart clippers & oiling them getting them ready for the day or just over all maintnance, I believe he truly enjoyed doing that for everyone. I have lots of memories working with him & lots of stories to remember. I'm so sorry for your loss of your Husband,dad & grandpa.

  • Sorry for your loss, was shocked to hear such sad news. Cory was a pleasure to work with and truly enjoyed his time at St Charles. Thoughts are with you all. - Posted by: Kyra (Employee @ St Charles) on: Feb 20, 2021

  • Please accept our sincere condolences. It has been many years since our paths have crossed. We were all so young when we met. Buying new homes and starting families. We have many great memories of all the shenanigans we would get up to. I remember dropping by one day and Cory was in the back yard at Ferndale. He had just started to split some firewood and his axe got stuck in an oak log and he could not get it out. We laughed and then together we got the axe out. Cory was so grateful as he always was for his family and friends. We just drifted apart and went on separate journeys. Thanks for all the wonderful memories.

  • I am truly sorry to read of Cory’s passing. Although I haven’t seen him in years I remember him from school and from all of us “hanging out” at Valleyview. Anytime I would stop in Onanole Murray would update me on Cory. Cory as being such a kind person. He was always so nice to talk to. My sincerest sympathies go out to all of you - Posted by: Pat Tolmie (Friend) on: Jan 30, 2021

  • We are all deeply saddened and so sorry for your loss. Living next door to Cory, Doris, Nancy and Jordan for 20 years was the absolute greatest. A truly wonderful family, and we got to see them every day. Cory was always cheerful and friendly spending as much time outdoors as possible. He would wish me Happy Birthday and the next day I'd return the favor as he was one day younger than me, something we would laugh about. Doris would remind me it was time for a haircut and we would have a nice visit. Charlie could not have been rescued by finer people. We will always remember you Cory. - Posted by: Rob St Mars and Family (next door neighbour) on: Jan 23, 2021
