Cory Giles McGee
Jan. 11, 1990 - October 7, 2012
Cory Giles McGee, 22, died tragically on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012. Born and raised in Placerville, he had just fulfilled his dream of becoming a firefighter. He found joy in spending time with friends and family and and doing CrossFit workouts. His greatest love was spending time with his father, hunting and working on the Christmas Tree Farm.
Cory is survived by his parents, Michael Giles McGee and Phyllis Elene McGee; brother, Eli McGee; sisters, Marisa Roberts and Summer Hayhurst (Simon); nieces, Charlotte and Laura Hayhurst; nephew, Giles Hayhurst; grandmother, Laura Downs; godmother, Coco Navarro; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
From all of us, Cory: You were so full of life, light and love. You are an inspiration to all. You held the rare ability to befriend all known to you and didn't have an enemy in this world. You chose to become a firefighter because you said, "I want to save lives." Your decision to become an organ donor means you have saved lives. May your spirit soar and your laughter always be heard.
Cory's family and close friends are holding a celebration of his life on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 4 p.m., at the McGee residence. In lieu of flowers donations in Cory's name can be sent to the Mosquito Fire Department, 8801 Rock Creek Road, Placerville, CA 95667, or Sierra Donor Services, 1760 Creekside Oaks Drive #220, Sacramento, CA 95833.
Man dies in single-car accident on Carson Road
By Cole Mayer
From page A1 | October 12, 2012
A man died in a single-car accident on Carson Road Oct. 6.
Cory McGee, 22, had been traveling eastbound at an unknown rate of speed at 2:15 a.m. just west of Indian Lane when, for an unknown reason, he turned to the right and drifted off the road, said California Highway Patrol Officer Quinn Cuthbertson. McGee lost control off the car, drifting into the opposing lane and off the north edge of the road, hitting a mailbox and traveling further north.
The car went airborne, Cuthbertson said, and the roof struck a utility pole and a tree, located next to each other. The car "came to a rest on its wheels facing west," he said. There were no witnesses of the initial accident.
Upon responding to the accident, McGee was life flighted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. He died the next day.
Cremated, Ashes given to family or friend.
