Corey Shawn Patrick, age 46, was born December 31, 1973, in St. Louis, Missouri, to Cleophus Robinson and Mary Ruth Patrick (preceded in death). The oldest of five children, he had two sisters, Tamika and Cleshay, and two brothers, Cleophus Jr. (preceded in death) and Terrion.
Corey received Christ and was baptized at age 12. Corey attended Lafayette High School in the St. Louis County School District, where he played football and was trained to become an officer in the ROTC program. He graduated June 1, 1993.
He began his career at Schnucks Bakery, joining the union (BCTGM-#4) in 2006. He gave Schnucks his outstanding labor until March 14, 2020.
Corey, affectionately called “Cool C,” enjoyed life with his family and one “Wow” moment after another. While enjoying life, he met his friend for life, “Detri”, sharing many replayable moments. Corey and Detri came together in Holy Matrimony on September 8, 2012. They shared the birth of his namesake Corey Jr., who put a smile on his face and a joy in his heart that would last forever. Being the father of one son and two stepdaughters, put him in the spotlight to be and was an awesome dad, which he was. He became a grandfather “Papa” of three boys with whom he was very active.
Corey leaves to mourn his passing to his new life: his precious wife, “Detri”; one son, Corey Jr.; two stepdaughters, Tredell and Tya; three grandsons, Jordan, Armond, and Corleone; father, Cleophus (Deborah); two sisters, Tamika and Cleshay; one brother, Terrion; grandparents, Lonza and Corine; three uncles and one aunt, Alonzo, Jackie, Ronnie (Diane), and Anthony; father-in-law, Perry (Cynthia); mother-in-law, Arthurine; two sisters-in-law, Tammy and Chasity; a very loving host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends (special friend, Terell Wilhite) to whom he was very special and loved dearly, and he will be missed forever.
