Suddenly, on Friday, February 5, 2021, with his wife at his side, Cory McKillop passed away in the St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 44 years.
Cory is survived by his wife Cynthia; sons, Ewan and Morgan; parents, Gary and Mary-Anne; sister Christy Neufeld (Shane); parents-in-law, Garry and Darlene Russell; sister-in-law Tanis Dyck; nephews, Brock, Brandon, and Jackson; and nieces, Ella and Taylor. He was predeceased by his grandparents, George and Jeannie Mckillop, as well as John and Myrtle Chornenki; and his aunt Donna Felder (Ken).
Cory was born in Winnipeg on December 2, 1976. He grew up in the West End where he made many happy memories and lasting friendships. He and Cynthia were married on November 24, 2001. Cory joined the Winnipeg Police Service in 2004. He was honoured to be a part of the police family.
Cory was very proud of his family and especially enjoyed spending time with his boys. Sports and music were their favourite pass times.
A funeral service will be held on Monday, February 22, 2021. Interment will follow in the Transcona Cemetery. Due to COVID regulations, the service will be by invitation only – but a larger Celebration of Life will be planned for a future date when restrictions are lifted.
The family would like to thank the ICU Doctors and nurses at St. Boniface for their amazing care and support.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for his sons' secondary education. Please contact Integrity Funeral Planning at 204-295-5408 for further information.

  • I had the privilege of knowing Cory back in the days of Grant Church while we were both involved in the music ministry there. A wonderful, kind, considerate man who possessed great talent and passion for music. I recall that Cory's maturity and consideration for others far surpassed that expected of someone his age back in those days. He was universally respected and loved by those in our church family. My deepest condolences to Cory's family and friends. - Posted by: brian mcwhirter (Friend) on: Feb 20, 2021
