Cory Long Chase of McLaughlin was friendly to anyone and everyone, not caring about their color or ethnic background, but seeing through to their hearts.
Sports were a big part of Cory's youth. He played soccer for nine years, which included 18 seasons. He was a center when he played basketball and won numerous awards for the most rebounds. As a little league pitcher, he threw many no-hitter games. When he turned 12, he became interested in golf and later that summer entered the Enlisted Wife's Club (EWC) Golf Tournament and won it.
Family said he will be missed, but will forever remain within their hearts.
