15 Condolences for Kordel “Kory” Quinn Halter

  • We are so very sorry for your loss of Kory. May time heal your heart and may you find peace so that one day you will be able to find smiles to replace the sadness.

  • We are so deeply sorry for the loss of your son. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • When I first met Kory, he was the shy student in the tutoring lab. Shortly after meeting him at school, I was assigned a new student. I was lucky to be paired with Kory. We worked together through many classes over the years. I regret never telling him that he was one of the smartest students that I have ever worked with! I never thought that I would meet someone that loved Halloween, animals, and dark humor as much as me. It was a pleasure seeing Kory have so much success with school the past few years.

    I always enjoyed my time working with him. Time flew by and I found myself not wanting to leave. The best part of working with Kory was seeing how well he got along with Suzanne. I could not believe that they went out to movies together and worked at the polls together every year. They were truly great friends. She supported him and had his back through everything. Kory will be missed by many. We all knew he was going to do great things with his young at heart spirit.

  • May all of your happy memories give you peace during this difficult time.
    Sending Suzanne & Shaun healing prayers & comforting hugs.
