Cory's Joseph Cory Has Died
Joseph P. Cory, Chairman of Cory First Choice Home Delivery, has died at the age of 76. Cory, part of the family that has owned the company throughout its history, was CEO from 1977 through 2003.
"For over five decades, Joe’s vision of a company built on relationships founded in dignity and respect propelled the company forward," the company said in a statement. "The close bonds he formed with his Cory team members and long-term clients transcended the business and created a family that stretched beyond the boundaries of traditional kinship. Joe would often say, “We are in a people business, not a trucking business.'"
Cory's family and the company have requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to City of Hope.
