Born on the Fourth of July and leaving us on St. Patrick’s Day tells the story of Corky— he loved a good time and a great party! He enjoyed classic cars, rock ‘n’ roll, all animals and good friends! His family was also very important to him. Preceded in death by parents Ernest Sr. and Ree, brother Rick, brother-in-law Jim Vuduris, and his in-laws Ron and Anita Ransdell. He is survived by loving wife, best friend and caregiver, Celeste. Also surviving are his sister-in-law and brother-in-law Renee and Steve Gaug and their Sons Justin and Jason Gaug whose help was Constant, loving and immeasurable during his six year decline. He also leaves behind sisters Nancy Vuduris and Vicki Bologna (Gary) and their children. Brothers Greg & Jeff. And friends who were always there if needed David Legats and Linda Klais. RIP My Love 


“Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and very dear.”
