Obituary of Earl Corey

It is with sadness the family announces the passing of Blois (Earl) Corey, 82, of Picadilly, NB on June 26th, 2021, surrounded by his family. Born in New Canaan, Earl was a son to the late Blois & Dorothy (Clarke) Corey.

Earl graduated from Havelock High School. As a young man, Earl took part in 4H activities and continued to be a 4H leader. On August 25,1960, he married his wife Joan Anne Charters from Fredericton. Earl was always self-employed, involved in farming, lumbering, and trucking. He was a founding member of Kingsco Transport, and a member of the SNB Wood Co-op. 

He enjoyed and was quite talented at woodworking and construction. He built a beautiful log cabin on the Washademoak Lake where family and friends gathered to enjoy many good times over the years. Upon retiring, he built a beautiful home overlooking the Sussex valley, using lumber from his own woodlot in New Canaan. From hemlock, pine, maple, and cherry wood, he could trace each species back to their origin. He later spent time working in his wood working shop or visiting friends and family. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and spending time with his children and grandchildren whenever he could. In later years he enjoyed being a member of the Silverado’s Men’s group and Mac’s camp dinner group. Earl was a kind man with a heart of gold.  His presence will be sadly missed by his friends and family.

Earl is survived by his wife of 59 years Joan (née Charters), three children; Grant (NadineThebeau), Nadine Simpson (Kevin), and Sabrina; five grandchildren: Zacharie Corey, Janelle Corey, Reese Simpson, Shianne Simpson, and Brylie Corey-Marshall; three sisters, several nieces, nephews and cousins.
