Russel Clinton ‘Bud’ Corey

November 18, 1935 – February 24, 2021
Russel “Bud” Clinton Corey, age 85, of Port Alberni, British Columbia passed away on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. “Bud” was born November 18, 1935 in Kenaston, Saskatchewan. With Saskatchewan as his first home, Bud joined his 4 siblings on the Family Farm.
Clinton & Pearl Corey had their hands full with Lee ‘Jean’, Muriel, Isabelle, Marguerite and Russel. How did the name ‘Bud’ come about? Big Brother – Jean called him his ‘Little Buddy’… Deciding that the Farm life was not for him, Bud packed-up his Motorcycle & headed for the Coast.
A Wife and Four Boys resulted from that decision – Doris, Brian, Reg, Brent, & Dale. Bud enjoyed his work as both a Plumber & driving Gravel Truck. He always found time to be involved in whatever his kids were involved in.
Camping & Fishing – Running the “HighLife” – saw Bud, a Happy man. Hockey & Softball were among his passions. Coaching ‘Ball came to be supplanted by watching his Favourite Hockey Team, The ‘Alberni Valley BullDogs’.
Bud’s extended family of Wife, Sons & Spouses, Siblings & Spouses, Grandchildren, Great- Grandchildren, Nieces, Nephews, are all grateful for the time we had with Bud. Cremation has taken place. Details of a Service will be deferred until COVID has run its course.
