Corey Deon Graham, 27, was born on March 16, 1989 in Baton Rouge, LA. He departed this life on January 18, 2017. As a child, Corey was educated in the Baker school system. He enjoyed restoring old cars and obtained a trade in welding. On July 3, 2016, he declared Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. His favorite scripture was John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Corey's generous and loving personality was infectious. He had a passion for children and family. He will truly be missed by many. Specifically, his mother, baby sister, and children will miss his protection and unwavering love. "…I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die…" (John 11:25)
