Born on September 30, 1966 in Gouverneur, NY, the son of Lloyd Edward Moore and Kathryn May Wallace, Cory graduated from Knox Memorial Central School in 1985. Cory worked in Florida before returning to his roots in Northern New York. Upon his return, he worked at Jefford Steel in Potsdam. In 2005 he went to work with R.B. Lawrence Ambulance as a vehicle maintenance manager until the time of his death. A skilled mechanic with a knack for detail, Cory treated the ambulances as his own baby. He knew the “ins and outs” of each vehicle like the back of his hand. Nothing got by him.

Cory is survived by his fiancé`, Robin Lynn Selleck; four daughters, Heidi Moore, Taylor Dunbar, Darian Moore, Jazmin Lopez and one son, Cory Moore; his mother, Kathryn of Clare; three step-daughters, Mackenzie Banks, Hayley Lamere, Betsey Banks; three step-grandchildren, Mason and Lucas Lamere and Ethan Gollinger; two brothers and one sister-in-law, Wallace (Cynthia), Edwards and Giles (Tammy Mantor), Clare; three sisters, Carlene (Cheyenne Kerr) Dowling, Oswegatchie, Ronda (Jerry) teReile of Canton, Brendalee (Chad) Emerson of Potsdam; grandchildren Chandler, Baila, Cory Robert, and Eliza, and several cousins. He was predeceased by his father, Lloyd Moore of Clare, a St Lawrence County Legislator.

An avid NASCAR fan and hunter, Cory was a true” jack of all trades”. He was a member of AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) and the co-owner and operator of Moore’s Field Airport, airport Identifier 1E8, affectionately known as “Clare International Airport”. Cory had passed his written exam and was preparing for his check ride proficiency exam to complete his private pilot’s license. He proudly owned his dads 1968 Cessna 182. You could not have found a harder worker, or someone who was more passionate about his life and family, than Cory.

Everyone up on the Hewlett Rd. sends their love to Robin, Heidi, Cory's Mom, Giles, and all of the family - he left his mark on our land with his work on my beautiful home and all the cars he creatively converted to bio-diesel that he and Eddie had so much fun playing around with. Cory was always someone you could call in a jam, broken down at the side of the road or otherwise, and his presence in the neighborhood will be sorely missed. His spirit will fly off to heaven on the wings of his Dad's beloved Cessna, for sure.

It is with great sadness to learn of Cory's accident/passing. I had worked at R. B. Lawrence as a driver and felt very secure knowing Cory did his best insuring the vehicles were safe and reliable. My most sincere sympathy to Cory's family at this sad time. I had known Cory's father Lloyd and brother Wally along with the Moore family for many years. Fly High Cory, reach beyond the sky for Life Everlasting.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Cory's tragedy. I wish I could be in NY with my mom to comfort her as well as all of Cory's family, but I can't be at this time. Please remember I have been thinking and praying for you since I have heard of the news.

Sincere condolences to the Moore and extended families on the loss of your dear beloved Cory. May the assurance recorded at Isaiah 25:8 where it states God will swallow up death forever and wipe tears from all faces be a source of comfort during these difficult days. I am truly sorry for your loss.
