I met Mr. Corey when I was employed (1978-2005) at Zachys Wine Store in Scarsdale. It was always a pleasure to assist him with his wine purchases. I shared with him many of my stories about trips to various wine regions of the world. He was always upbeat, friendly and a gentleman supreme! When the Christmas holiday would arrive, I would be the happy recipient of a Mr. Corey gift! A great box of candy and a wonderful tie. I will always remember this special man. Rest In peace sir! Sincerely, Harvey Savadsky
