Cory Pinder McKinney

Cory P. McKinney, was born in Tacoma, Washington, June 26th 1977 to Tem and Vicky McKinney. His infectious smile, laugh and gentle personality was apparent from that day forward. He grew up with a close connection to his brothers Tim and Casey and cousins Brent and Mike, the gang that was not often separated. Cory married the love of his life, Lindsey Shuler - McKinney in 2004.” I fell in love with that infectious smile and witty/funny sense of humor. He always made me laugh or smile! I will miss the warmth of your hands, the strength of your arms and the love of your heart. We went through it all baby and we made it. I Love You! Their love created 2 beautiful children, Shaun “He always comforted me when I was sad” and Kennedi,” He was a very Fun dad and he pushed me to my limits. He loved Jiu Jitsu and we were a Father/Daughter duo.

Cory fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional wrestler and the friendships in and out of the ring were many. He loved animals, especially Pitbulls. His strength was undeniable. After suffering a stroke, that took his ability to speak, he worked hard to get back his physical abilities and he found ways to communicate his wonderful sense of humor. He became a great carpenter and was always willing to help family and friends, giving his all to everyone. Cory passed on December 31, 2021. He enriched so many lives and the positive effects of his influence will last forever.

What a great picture of Cory! That just fits his wild Irish roots which so stimulate that smile, sense of humor and twinkle in his eye. Don and I send our deepest sympathy to Lindsey, to the children, his brothers and Vicky and Tem. Our hearts are broken for your loss. Love from Don and Jocie
