Corey has been cutting my mothers hair since before I can remember and gave me my very own first hair cut at the ripe age of 10. After 22 years Corey became like a long lost uncle. A tragedy, you will be missed.

I will Forever Remember that Sweet Smile and Impish Look, Corey. We Laughed together and sometimes were Quiet Together. The 20 yrs. between us meant Nothing. You will forever have a Place in my Heart. Love You, my Friend, Janet

Corey you are missed. It is so difficult to think of you as gone. I will miss you so much. You were such a wonderful, interesting, and kind person. And as I came to know, wise beyond your years. You deserved so much in life, you worked so hard, but never lost your kindness.

I was very sorry to hear of the loss of Corey this past week. He was my cousin and I had known him since we were kids. I had lost contact with Corey for many years, but when his father , Harry, was not doing well would talk and I had hoped that we would get to know each other again. He was a nice guy and he will be sorely missed.

Corey, you will always be loved and missed dearly, I’m so sorry that you were taken from so many that loved and cared deeply for you. A light has gone out for so many of us; I will always remember your sarcastic, funny sense of humor, your comical honesty with my ridiculous requests and most of all your extreme talent. Rest in peace Corey ~ with love, your friend Lisa

Corey was my stylist for twenty years and I considered him a good friend. I am so very sorry for Andre's loss as well as his little dogs who will always be waiting for him to come home. Corey had a long life ahead of him, making people beautiful, traveling, and simply being fabulous. I can't believe someone so wonderful can be gone so senselessly. I can't look at my reflection without seeing his work and I'll never forget him.

I was a friend and a client to Corey for 20 years. I only learned today of his passing and the loss seems unbearable. He knew more about me than anyone. We got our pugs at the same time (13 years ago) and we really enjoyed telling each other stories about their lives. I will miss him so so much. My thoughts and prayers go out to Andre, Oso, Oola and Nikos. I know how much he loved you all.
Blessed be with the Angels Corey, I will never forget you.

My deepest sympathies...Corey was on of my very first clients at Sal's....many laughs and giggles with he and his many coworkers. May you rest in peace!

I was Corey's second cousin; his Mother and I were very close first cousins.
I just heard of this yesterday. It made me feel very sad to think that he left this world in such a tragic way. We spent many a holiday together at his Moms in Marlboro. So sorry for your loss Andre. I'm sure you and the "pupplies" will dearly miss him. Rest in peace Cory. You're with Jesus now, and your Mom and Dad. Condolences from the "Clancy" clan.
