Corey Kinsella Obituary, Death – Corey R. Kinsella, 37 years old, was unexpectedly taken from this world on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 at his home in Piqua. Most recently, he resided in Dayton. On May 30, 1985, he was born in Piqua to Richard J. Kinsella, who passed away, and Mary J. (Morsey) Crist, who is still alive and resides in Piqua. Along with his mother, he is survived by his son, Elijah Kinsella; a sister, Coleen Kinsella of Troy; his life companion, Calen Vernon of Piqua; his stepfather, Michael Crist; four step-siblings; four nephews, Andrew Stringer, Ryan Stringer, Blake Leffel, and Finnegan Daugherty; a niece, Baylee Leffel; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. His stepfather Erin L. Kinsella, his sister, passed away before him. She was his immediate predecessor.
Corey graduated from Anna High School in 2004 as well as the Upper Valley Junior Volunteer Service. After that, he went to Hobart Welding School to get his welding certification and graduated with it. He attended services at the Living Word Church, which is located in Dayton. At the Woodhaven Residential Treatment Center, he held the position of a rehabilitation intake counselor. He participated in the softball league that was hosted by Good Shepherd Ministries, where he was an active member. He enjoyed listening to music, caring for bonsai trees, and watching Notre Dame play football. He was blessed with a tremendous sense of humor, and he delighted in eliciting chuckles from as many people as he could. He never met a stranger in his life, and he brought a smile to the faces of everyone he came in contact with. In addition, he had a thing for aliens and Calvin Klein, but above all else, he cherished his relationship with his son, whom he described as the “apple of his eye.” Many people are going to miss Corey tremendously.
