Leonard "Len" Corey


COREY, Len….

Peacefully with this family by his side on Monday, September 30, 2019 at Victoria Hospital, London, Leonard Corey passed away in his 95th year. Beloved husband of Lois (Burton) Corey for 56 years. Cherished father of Alan Corey (Amy Lynn), Paul Corey (Bonnie), Lana Kowolski (Kevin), and Dr. David Corey (Jill McLeod). Loving grandpa of 7 grandchildren and G.P. of 3 great-grandchildren. Dearly missed by his nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his son Robert Corey, his brother William Corey and granddaughter Amber Corey-Crossett.

During his life Len worked for many companies and had the opportunity to travel the world for his job. He was also a long-time Mason and Shriner and in his later years and during retirement, he and his wife enjoyed wintering in Florida for 20 years. He was an avid golfer, obtained his real estate license, enjoyed wood carving and his sense of humour served him well all of his life. Len was also an adherent to Elmwood Presbyterian Church. Through the Alzheimer's program Len gained a true friend, Lucas, and enjoyed his weekly visits with him over 4 years. The family wishes to thank McCormick Home and the palliative care unit at Victoria Hospital for all of the kindness and compassionate care.
