Corey Andrew Nye

Corey Andrew Nye, age 40, of Pickford, Michigan, passed away in Cedarville, Michigan, on April 13, 2022. He was born in Petoskey, Michigan, on November 9, 1981, to parents Tim Nye and Patricia Brown.

Corey grew up in Pickford and graduated from Pickford High School in 1999. He became certified in mechanics through the Sault Career Center and started working with Norris Contracting soon after. He then went on to work for Mertaugh Boat Works for fifteen years as well as Pickford Auto for a few years. His latest job was with Viking Boat Harbor in Cedarville where he got to enjoy working on a variety of boat projects. He met the mother of his children and started a family in 2006 when they welcomed Emma into the world and then Eli in 2011.

Corey was a very sociable and lovable man and was a friend to everyone. He loved to work and was very dedicated to his trade. He would gladly accept side projects and was someone who enjoyed staying busy. He especially enjoyed boating and work on boats—but his greatest joy was being a father and raising his two children. Corey made many friends over the years and will be greatly missed.
