Corey A Annett, 49, of Mesa, Arizona, went home to be with the Lord on December 7, 2022.
Corey was born in April of 1973 to Richard and Nancy Annett in Milbank, SD. After Corey graduated from high school, he lived in New Hope, MN for many years before moving to Arizona.
With a dry sense of humor, Corey had a passion for making everyone he met smile and desired to make their day brighter. Because of his love for others, he made a point of sharing the gospel of Jesus with all people he encountered. In an effort to be positive, he would frequently share his favorite quote, Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is a gift…, That’s why we call it the Present.
He had a tender heart for cats and volunteered with 4 Paws Animal Rescue to help them find their forever homes. Besides cats, some of Corey’s other passions or hobbies included playing cards like rummy, bowling, going to the movies (Forrest Gump was a favorite), listening to music, helping people diagnose computer problems, playing computer games, building his stamp collection, and cruising in his VW Rabbit when he was younger.
Corey was predeceased by his father, Richard Annett; paternal grandparents, Irwin and Lucille Annett; maternal grandparents, Lloyd and Irene Kahler; and cousin, Scott Davis. He is survived by his mother, Nancy Annett of Waubay, SD; sister, Lisa Annett of Litchfield Park, AZ; brother, Calvin (Tammy) Annett, nephew, Tyler Annett of Leota, MN; nephew, Jordan (Hannah) and great niece, Brealyn Annett of Fargo, ND; step-nephew, Luke LeBrun (Jessica & great nephew, Lincoln) Bellevue, NE; step-niece, Cheyenne LeBrun (great-nephew Dion) Sioux Falls, SD.
Services will be held at (Arizona) location, date/time? In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to 4 Paws Animal Rescue in Sun City, AZ, Lions Club International, or the American Cancer Society, organizations that Corey felt strongly about.
A celebration of life service will also be held in South Dakota in early 2023. An announcement will be made once details are finalized.
