Corky touched so many of our lives. He always had a smile on his face that would light up any conversation! I specifically remember an occasion that he and Willie shared some of the wonderful stories of their journeys in the beginning of their life together and how they ended up in Houston. I could have listened all night. Corky was loved and will be missed more than he could ever imagine. God will get to hear those stories now and smile at all who knew him.

Corky Dragoo was the kindest, sweetest and smartest man I have ever known. He loved his Lord and his family more than anything. A loving husband, gentle father and “Big Daddy” to his grandkids that he adored. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
