Edward Michael Corey

Edward Michael Corey, 95, of Beckley West Virginia, died on Friday, December 7th, at his home. He passed peacefully with his caretaker of many years, Mike Stump, by his side.

Born February 19, 1923, he was the son of the late Michael & Malakey Corey.

Eddie, along with his 2 brothers, owned & operated Corey Candy Company until they sold the business & retired. He then worked part time for Roger Fox, Fox Advertising, selling specialty products, until his health began to decline.

He was a World War II Veteran & a member of the Moose Lodge & was a faithful Christian. He attended St. Nicholas Orthodox Church .

He had a great sense of humor & loved telling & hearing jokes.  He loved his sweets, which is no surprise, since he owned a candy company. At his home, when he still owned Corey Candy Company, he always had drawers filled with candy bars & would tell anyone that came to visit to help themselves.

He was preceded in death by his 3 sons, Michael, Steven & Mark, his wife Rosemarie, his brothers Matthew & George Corey and his sisters Madeline & Mary.

Funeral will be Friday, December 14th, at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, 211 S. Heber St., Beckley, West Virginia. Very Rev. Fr. Samuel Haddad  will be officiating. Visitation will be at 11AM & funeral at noon. Burial will be at Blue Ridge Cemetery (Mausoleum)

May his Memory be Eternal!
