McGee Cory

Jan. 11, 1990 — Oct. 7, 2012

Cory Giles McGee, 22, died tragically on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012. Born and raised in Placerville, he had just fulfilled his dream of becoming a firefighter. He found joy in spending time with friends and family and and doing CrossFit workouts. His greatest love was spending time with his father, hunting and working on the Christmas Tree Farm.

Cory is survived by his parents, Michael Giles McGee and Phyllis Elene McGee; brother, Eli McGee; sisters, Marisa Roberts and Summer Hayhurst (Simon); nieces, Charlotte and Laura Hayhurst; nephew, Giles Hayhurst; grandmother, Laura Downs; godmother, Coco Navarro; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

From all of us, Cory: You were so full of life, light and love. You are an inspiration to all. You held the rare ability to befriend all known to you and didn’t have an enemy in this world. You chose to become a firefighter because you said, “I want to save lives.” Your decision to become an organ donor means you have saved lives. May your spirit soar and your laughter always be heard.

Cory’s family and close friends are holding a celebration of his life on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 4 p.m., at the McGee residence. In lieu of flowers donations in Cory’s name can be sent to the Mosquito Fire Department, 8801 Rock Creek Road, Placerville, CA 95667, or Sierra Donor Services, 1760 Creekside Oaks Drive #220, Sacramento, CA 95833.
