Korey was an avid sports fan. He loved watching Husker and Bronco football, KC Royals baseball and Kansas Jayhawk basketball.
He also watched NASCAR, where he always favored the car that was sponsored by Lowe’s. He kept an extensive collection of ballcaps that captured his love of sporting teams and his keen eye would regularly catch when someone had been touching them or getting them out of place. He also loved spending time at the lake with his family and friends.
Korey was light-hearted and liked to tease his friends. He enjoyed trying to make people laugh and his smile often put a smile on the faces around him.
Korey had a warm and magnetic personality that was endearing.
