Corey was a professional crane operator.
Corey’s life accomplishment was our son Cash Timothy Martin. When Cash was born, he told me he finally knew what he was put on this earth for. He loved the outdoors, the beach, riding his motorcycle, attending car shows, attending concerts and most of all sharing his experiences with our son. Corey would bring Cash to “Cruising the Coast” in Mississippi every year to enjoy all that he loved with his family. Corey grew to become the most loving father that I ever witnessed. His love of music and cooking on the grill around a fire with Cash, family and friends was his happy place. His witty personality, dance moves, amazing singing voice and love will forever be cherished in our memories. Corey was a hard worker, a grill master and most of all, a loving father.
May the love you share with Chico be your comfort now and you be reunited over the Rainbow Bridge.
