Paul Corey

July 14, 1938 — November 9, 2018

WEBSTER – Paul E. Corey, 80, of Pinewood Drive passed away peacefully in his home on Friday, November 9, 2018 surrounded by his family. A caring father, devoted husband, and fun-loving Pop to all his grandchildren, he leaves forever cherished memories of his unwavering kindness and enjoyable sense of humor.

Born in Worcester, MA, son of the late James and Grace M. (Belanger) Corey, Paul spent his childhood and teenage years growing up in the city of Worcester and was a graduate of Saint Peter’s High School, class of 1957. He also earned an associate degree in Business from Worcester Junior College in 1959. At the age of 16, Paul met his loving wife, Carole Carlsen, and the two were later married on June 13, 1959. They settled in Oxford, MA to raise their family before moving to Webster, where they would reside together for the past 28 years.

Paul proudly worked at the Worcester District Court for 13 years, finally retiring in 2006. Previously, he worked for 33 years at Cincinnati Milacron in Worcester, formerly known as Heald Machine Company. For several years, Paul served as a leader for the Boy Scouts and also volunteered for the Oxford Little League. He was an avid football fan of the New England Patriots and enjoyed spending much time outdoors tending to his yard. He had a passion for history and a love of country music as well as cowboy films. Paul especially loved to read old western novels by author Louis L’Amour, often reading by the side of his backyard pool. He enjoyed regular trips to the Foxwoods Casino and liked to go on vacation to the beach with his family and friends. Paul will always be remembered as a warm-hearted, outgoing, humorous, and easy-going man whose greatest joy was spending time with his best friend and wife, Carole, his children, and his many grandchildren.

Paul was predeceased by a son, John Charles Corey, who died in 1963, and a brother, James R. Corey, who passed away in 2000.

In addition to his wife of nearly 60 years, Carole A. (Carlsen) Corey of Webster, Paul is survived by his three children; William P. Corey and his wife, Jill, of Pomfret Center, CT, Donna M. Kiritsy and her husband, Francis, of Auburn, MA, and Christopher P. Corey and his wife, Jennifer, of Woodstock, CT; nine grandchildren; Danielle Johnson and her husband, Chris, Specialist Liam Corey - U.S. Army Infantry and Alana Corey, Alexandra and Dr. Michael Kiritsy, Gavin and Meghan Corey, and Aedan and Cashel Noel; also survived by many nieces and nephews and a large extended family.

The family would like to sincerely thank Megan Dumais, Alissa Suitum, and the entire staff at Salmon VNA and Hospice for the exceptional care and compassion provided to Paul over the last few weeks.
