    My very sincere sympathy to Kory’s family, Abel and Jess. My son Jeff and Kory were very good friends. I had the pleasure of meeting Kory and spending a little time with him. He was such a nice young man, so kind and helpful to anyone that needed a hand. I know Jeff is going to miss him dearly as will all of you. I pray Kory is at peace in heaven where we all will meet again. I hope you will find comfort and joy in the good memories Kory left us all with. Sending my love,

    Sending the Evans family and Jessie all my love.
    Kory was such a funny guy. Every time Scotty and I were around him it was nothing but laughs. Until we see you again Kory.

    I grew up with Kory and he was always known as the class clown. I tried to find a picture from our 4th grade class but he was blurry in every single one he was in because he was goofing off and making everyone laugh. He was a wonderful guy and will be deeply missed by many.

    Sending the warmest thoughts of love and healing to all who are mourning him.

    Kory played basketball with my son Jarred in middle and high school. He was a kind young man and I’m absolutely devastated to hear this tragic news. My most sincere condolences to the entire Evans family.

    Bob,Dawn and Pam,
    I can’t imagine what you are feeling right now…my heart is breaking thinking about you all.
    Kory spent a lot of time at our house and in my mini-van from flag football and WAA baseball to driving him and my son to 43 Hoops Elite Basketball in Hopkins. I remember packing 8-9 kids in my mini-van to drive them 2 blocks to and from school in the winter. Kory always had us laughing from reading articles in The Onion out loud to us or just his way of walking in the house and saying in his Joey from Friends voice “How you doing “ !! He had a heart of gold and would help do anything you needed done. Kory we will miss you and your smiling face.

    Bob & Dawn, I’m deeply sorry for your loss. Kory was a gentle, kind young man and always greeted me with a warm smile. The world is a little less bright.
    May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
    XXOO, Wendy

    I was Kory’s teacher in middle school and he even did jiu jitsu with me for awhile. I am very sorry to hear of his passing and want everyone to know that all of my memories of him are fond ones.
