Roy/South Jordan – Corey Brook Roberts passed away December 18, 2015 at the young age of 41. He was born November 18, 1974 in Ogden, Utah, son of Gary and Kristy Wiberg Roberts. He spent his first few years in Ogden. He was close to his four siblings but Bryon, his brother younger by a year, were very good friends for life. He took an interest in gymnastics and excelled in it, taking 2nd in State. He attended Grandview Elementary. He had a close relationship with both his Grandpa and Grandma Wiberg and Roberts. He was fond of his cousins in Logan and often would get together with them for snow activities, swimming, or just to hang out.\n\nCorey and Bryon later moved to their dad’s in Taylorsville (Salt Lake area). Corey grew fond of his step-mother Monica and her loving support. He received the rank of Eagle Scout when he was 14 years old. Corey was very ambitious and self-motivated. He attended Eisenhower Junior High and Taylorsville High, graduating in 1993. He stared working at the Crossroads Mall when he was 15 and there met his sweetheart Leisha Gould of Salt Lake City. After a time of dating, they were married in a special ceremony on June 10, 1995 in the International Peace Gardens in Salt Lake City.\n\nCorey and Leisha moved into his Taylorsville boyhood home. They soon had their first son Drew then Noah followed. They noticed problems in Drew’s large motor skills. They were devastated to find both boys had Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. At the time Leisha was pregnant. They valiantly carried through with the pregnancy and were rewarded with a beautiful baby girl, Isabel. Girls don’t get this form of Muscular Dystrophy. Soon Drew and Noah could not climb stairs and had to be in wheelchairs so they looked for a handicapped accessible home. They ended up building one in South Jordan. They had help from his brother Bryon who sub-divided his property so they could build their home. It is beautiful one level home built specifically for the motorized wheelchairs the two boys drive.\n\nCorey worked at Morgan Stanley for 12 years in financial investments and eventually became a branch manager. He also had the opportunity to go in Manhattan, New York and work the Bond Desk for six months. Continual lifting of the boys caused him to injure his back, having surgery and going on disability.\n\nCorey maintained a neat home and enjoyed flowers and a manicured lawn and yard. He loved his family. He cherished his wife and three children. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was an Elder.\n\nCorey will be remembered as a big man at 6 foot 2 inches but with a gentle heart. He was meticulous in his habits and tried to keep things organized. He took it upon himself to make a phone directory for our many-faceted blended family so we could all communicate. He also will be remembered for loving Drew, Noah and Isabel above all else. He told them he would be on the other side before them to help them across. Well, he must have known something we didn’t.\n\nHe is survived by his wife Leisha, children: Andrew, Noah, and Isabel; parents: Gary Roberts (Monica), Kristy Merrill (Lynn); siblings: Bryon Roberts (Jessica), Angelia Patterson (Mike), Nicholas Roberts (Sharon), Michelle Dean (Dick), Ryan Roberts, Nikki Brumsfield (Adam), Heather Hill (Tyler), Jared Merrill (Daley), Christilyn Kobe, Whitney Darger (Joe), and Aleigha Garfield.
