How Did We Do?

Ron Corey, 64, of Winona, died Thursday, April 6, 2017 at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center.
Ron was born May 5, 1952 in Winona to John and Helen (Betts) Corey. He graduated from Winona Senior High School. Following graduation, he served his country honorably in the United States Marine Corp. On July 28, 1979, he married Geri Zimmerman in Winona. Ron spent his career working for the US Army Corp of Engineers as a Master Tender. He served two tours in Iraq with the Corp, working to rebuild in 2003 and 2004.
Ron enjoyed hunting, fishing, animals and pretty much anything that allowed him to be outside. Kids brought so much joy to his life, especially: Chris, Cole, Melanie, Bailey, Eli, Vanessa, Abel, Savannah, Josh and Tia. He was fortunate to be able to help care for them and watch them all grow up.
He is survived by his wife, Geri; three children, Lisa Corey, Jeremy (Jen) Corey and Eric (Ranee) Corey; one grandson whom he loved dearly, Christopher Corey; great-granddaughter, Ava Corey; and Cole, Melonie and Bailey who were like his own. Siblings, Bruce Corey, Jimmy Corey, Cindy Nascak, Wendy (Chase) Hoffman; step-sister, Lori Fort-Herig; parents-in-law, Mark & Grace Zimmerman and many nieces, nephews and extended family that meant so much to him....stay out of trees.
He was preceded in death by his father, John Corey; mother, Helen Corey-Fort (Lamar Fort); and two brothers, Johnny and Mike Corey.
A Celebration of his life will be 12 p.m., Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at Hoff Celebration of Life Center - Goodview with the Reverend William Flesch officiating. Visitation will be 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
