Read more about the life story of Corey and share your memory.
Corey Robert James, 36, fell asleep in death on August 13, 2023. Corey was born on July 27, 1987, to parents Jesse James and Renee Petersen in Libby, Montana. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents; maternal great grandparents; stepdaughter Trinity; and his beloved dad Jesse. He leaves behind his beautiful wife Kristy James; his in-laws Todd Michels, Nancy Michels, Pete Paquet; children Alea, Tucker, Noah, Taylor, Tanner, and Tristan; sisters Megan and Hannah; Grandma Dia; as well as many aunties, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and close friends. Some of Corey’s friends include Chris and Jeremy Goucher, as well as Mike and Dori McIsaac. Corey was an intelligent, charismatic, fun-loving man who enjoyed working alongside his wife to run a local over-comers program. He cherished helping ones draw closer to their creator, despite facing his own obstacles. He worked a variety of jobs including rock work, cooking, and carpentry. Corey enjoyed the great outdoors such as camping, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, and swimming. Despite the sting of death, may we all find comfort in the promise found in the Bible in Revelation 21:3-4. It reads, “God himself will be with them and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
