Memorial Biography

William Corey Lawrence passed away at the age of 51 on May 17, 2021. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Those who knew Corey, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. Corey will be missed everyday by his father, Bill Lawrence, his mother, Jackie Lawrence, sisters, Lori East (Dan) and Jaime Masenthin (Allen), wife, Callie Lawrence, sons, Mykael Johnson, Devin Lawrence, Aiden Lawrence, daughter, Audrye Parris (Joseph), seven grandchildren, many other loving family members and countless great friends. Since Corey’s death, many have written about how special he was and how fortunate they were to have known him. Most of all, they recall the sheer pleasure of his company, how good he made them feel, how free they were to be themselves around him and how much they will miss him. Corey cared about people in the purest way—ready and willing to lend a hand at a moment’s notice--he wished the best for them and without asking anything in return. Corey, deemed the “baby whisperer” had a calming energy that soothed babies. He was passionate and always a hands-on presence with his kids and especially his grandkids. When he wasn’t making sure they were having fun, happy and taken care of, he in recent years had an accomplished lead role with KM Construction Company, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Whatever Corey enjoyed and focused on—he put all of himself into it. Whether it was in the kitchen or on wheels, he had a fearless and creative spirit. Corey was a foodie of sorts—loved to experiment in the kitchen and share his love of different cuisines and passion of wine pairing with others. Corey found an outlet for his boundless energy as a young boy in bicycle motocross. Eventually the excitement of BMX bikes gave way to the lure of four wheels. His dedication to mastering his craft of skateboarding continued for the remainder of his life earning respect and leaving a legacy as one of the top vert skaters in Kansas City. Corey’s life will be formally celebrated, Saturday, June 12, 2021. A private service for immediate family will be held at Greenlawn Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri, followed by a Celebration of Life gathering at Penn Valley Skate Park in Kansas City from 4:00-8:00 p.m. Please join us! “And let us find and encourage with ourselves, within our society, those gifts that make each of us special, not star power, not intellectual prowess, but effable mystery and extraordinary beauty of the simple human heart.”
