It is with great sadness and shock that the family of Cory Lorne Lavigne announces his unexpected passing on Thursday, April 26, 2018. Cory was at his home away from home in Mexico vacationing with the love of his life, Vanessa (nee Murray) Lavigne. Besides his loving wife he leaves behind his two beautiful children, Aliya (14) and Quinn (10). His children truly were the light in his eyes. Cory was born in Woodstock, December 18, 1977. He is the son of Lorne and Kathy Lavigne. Cory will be remember by his brother, Nathan Lavigne (Afton); nephew, Aiden; nieces, Hannah and Madisen Lavigne; sister Amanda Whalen (Josh) and loved by several aunts and uncles. Deeply missed by grandfather, Donald Lavigne (Lauza).
Predeceased by grandparents, Marjorie Lavigne, Cecil and Shirley Dickinson and uncle Keith Dickinson.
Cory worked in sales for the company Wajax out of Moncton. He truly could sell ice to an eskimo. He put 110 percent into everything he did. Cory also owned and operated many apartment buildings in his town, and in my eyes was the up and coming business man in the area. He had a drive in his heart to succeed like no other. Cory knew people from near and far and his friends circle was never ending. He touched everyone he came in contact with. Cory had a zest for life like no other. Many say people are one of a kind, but he truly was like no other. His love of music and love of fun was known by all. Cory has passed his music legacy on through his children. We should have known for all his special qualities he truly was an angel in disguise.
Family will receive comfort at the Chipman Funeral Home (28 Northrup Drive, Chipman 339-6612) on Friday, May 11, 2018 from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
