COREY SCOTT BRAY 08/08/1982 - 04/06/2013 On April 6, 2013 our beloved Corey passed away. The world is truly a lesser place for all of those who had the privilege of knowing Corey. Although his untimely and unexpected death is devastating and heart-wrenching, we are comforted in knowing that he is in the presence of loved ones who had gone on before him, especially his precious baby daughter, Tea. Corey's love and passion for life was shown in the way he cherished his family. He adored his wife Tiffany and their two precious boys, Caden 5 and Tyler 3. He was preceded in death by his baby daughter Tea, as well as Uncles Alan and Steven Fava. If you knew Corey, you knew he felt most at home in the outdoors. Corey loved to hike in Yosemite, fish throughout California and especially enjoyed deep sea fishing off the coast of California. Other hobbies included mixed martial arts and diving for lobsters wherever and whenever he could, always loved catching his meals. Corey's infectious smile, magnetic personality and zest for life compelled everyone he came in contact with to want to be a part of his life. One of Corey Bray's hugs was enough to let you know that he not only cared about you, but also that life was something to enjoy together. For employment, Corey worked extensively in the rehabilitation field. He was not only a counselor but also managed facilities dedicated to helping people in need. Aside from this, he managed a pet store, worked every job the restaurant business has to offer as well as construction jobs when he had time. Corey is survived by his wife Tiffany and sons Caden and Tyler, as well as his devoted mother and father Linda and Eric Pennington, Grandparents Roslyn and Sonny Fava, Aunt Patti and Uncle Rick Velarde, cousins Anthony, Trenton, Tabitha, Troy, Summer, In-Laws Nelia and Shuyan Lee and family, as well as other loving friends and relatives too numerous to mention. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, April 20th at Mission Hills Catholic Mortuary, 11160 Stranwood Avenue, Mission Hills CA 91345, with internment following at San Fernando Mission Cemetery. Viewing will be from 11:00-1:00 p.m. and funeral services from 1:00-2:00 p.m.
