Cory Stowe Sisler of Hatteras, December 4

By on December 8, 2017

Cory Stowe Sisler passed away on the morning of December 4th, 2017 after a long struggle with addiction. Cory will be greatly missed by so many – an old, good soul who was born with a sparkle in his eyes and a very special way of making everyone laugh even in the worst of times.

A Hatteras boy and Southsider through and through, Cory was 31 years young.

He was happiest bobbing on a swell in the Atlantic Ocean, Indonesia and the North Shore of Hawaii waiting for either the next big ride or the next big catch with his brother, cousins, family and friends.

His parents, Gary and Wendy, will tell you how loving Cory was as a child and how much more so he became as an adult. When Cory gave he gave wholeheartedly.

His father and mother recall with joy the times spent together. Blessed with too short of a time to share a full life, he will be remembered for his strength of body and kindness of soul. The brightness of his smile and sparkle of his eyes will light the way for those who loved him through these dark times.

His brother, Harley, will tell you that Cory lived life with the throttle wide open and that he cherished every moment of time he spent with his beloved brother.

Harley and his cousins, Brook and Nelson, Julie, Jake and Patsy spent much of their youth in the rough and tumble pursuits of the young, cutting each other down and building each other up with alternating scorn and love. Their countless adventures will never be forgotten.

His loving sister Misty will simply tell you that he drove her crazy and that she will miss him everyday.

Cory had a close relationship with his Grams, Edith Stowe Oden of Hatteras, who always had a special place in her heart for him, his Aunt Beverly, his Aunt Beth and Uncle Mike, Uncle Spurgeon and Aunt Kathy, Sister Whitney and his Uncle Mike.

Joan Sisler, his surviving grandparent lovingly known as Ms. Joan, will always remember that special twinkle in Cory’s eyes.

CorTaj was a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, a grandson, and to so many, a dear friend and bro. For all of you that love Cory we ask you to embrace life with the same passion that Cory did.
