Isobe, Cory Alan Dean passed away in Nanaimo, British Columbia on Sunday November 1, 2015. Cory was father to Aleena and Mattias Isobe. Survived by his parents, Donna and Jerald Isobe; Grandmother Eleanor Kaneda, brothers Chris, Kelly (Brandy) Isobe, many aunts, uncles and cousins, nieces and nephews. Cory was born May 22, 1974 in Vernon, graduating from WL Seaton in 1992. He immediately began his career as an auto parts salesman, spending the last 17 years at Lordco, most recently in Nanaimo – entertaining customers and those working with him. When Cory and Trina had Mattias and Aleena they were the true light in Cory’s life. He was the 2 am baby shift, and genuinely adored this time in his life. Cory enjoyed telling the babies about Star Wars and the Canucks; as the kids grew, Cory engaged them in many light saber duels, forts and blanket rides. Cory was an avid sports fan – he enjoyed his morning golf crew at Hillview, and later his men’s league at Spall. He played softball, and enjoyed watching the Mariners and Canucks. Cory was frequently making others smile; he was goofy and charming, and had an amazing sense of humour. He will be missed by many.

A memorial service for Cory will held at 3103 30th Street, (Elks Hall) Vernon BC. Friday November 6, 2015 @ 12pm. Please bring your stories of Cory to share with Mattias, Aleena and Cory’s family. Condolences may be sent to
