In Memory Of Corey Christopher James
DO'S & DON'TS WITH A BEREAVED PARENT WASHINGTON REDSKINS

Corey Christopher James (20) and his wife Michelle Marie James (22) were killed on Sunday, August 17th, 2003 in an automobile accident on Highway 79 in Florence, Arizona.

Corey was born June 16, 1983 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He relocated to Deltona, Florida on December 2, 1993.

Corey was a 2001 graduate of Deltona High School, Deltona, FL. He joined the U.S. Air Force in June 2001 and attended basic training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, TX. Upon completing his basic training, he attended tech school at Shepherd Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, TX. After tech school he was stationed at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ. Corey was an Airman First Class with the 355th Component Maintenance Squadron working on the A-10 warplanes, which were instrumental in the War on Terror in Iraq.

While stationed in Tucson, Corey met and fell in love with Michelle. They became engaged on Thanksgiving Day 2002 and were married on May 18th, 2003 at Gold Canyon Golf Resort, AZ.

Corey enjoyed all sports, especially baseball, NASCAR and the Washington Redskins, as well as his childhood pet dog, Chloe; but his true passions in life were his wife Michelle and the Military.

Michelle was born on March 31, 1981 in Janesville, Wisconsin. She was a 2000 graduate of Wayne High School, Fort Wayne, IN and was attending Central Arizona College, Tucson, AZ for her degree in nursing and expressed interest in Neonatology. She loved music, played the piano and loved animals, especially cats. Michelle and Corey recently adopted their first pet, a cocker spaniel they named Shadow.

Corey and Michelle touched the lives and hearts of countless people in their brief lives with us.

Corey is survived by his parents, John and Donna James, Deltona, FL; his sister Amy Sica, Deltona, FL; and his maternal grandmother, Frances Carter, Scranton, PA. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Caradoc and Hilda James and his maternal grandfather, John R. Carter.

Michelle is survived by her parents, Marjorie Burkhamer, Gold Canyon, AZ and Joseph Burkhamer, Fort Wayne, IN; her brother Michael Burkhamer of IN; and her maternal grandfather Michael Mounts, Gold Canyon, AZ. She was preceded in death by maternal grandmother Loretta Mounts.

Funeral services were held Saturday, August 30th, 2003 at Deltona Memorial Gardens with a gathering of friends at 10a.m. and Full Military Honors service at 12p.m. with the U.S. Air Force Chaplain officiating. Following the service, Corey and Michelle were interred together at Deltona Memorial Gardens.

Arrangements entrusted to Deltona Memorial Funeral Home, 1295 Saxon Boulevard Orange City, Florida 32763 386-775-4260.

I am so sorry to hear about the tragic loss of Corey and Michelle. When someone so young and full of promise is taken away, it is especially sorrowing. In the near future God's kingdom that we pray for at Matthew 6:9, 10 will take full control of the earth and death will be done away with brought to nothing, in harmony with 1 Corinthians 15:26. Then we can look forward to seeing Corey and Michelle along with our other loved ones we have lost in the resurrection promised at Acts 15:28,29. Ma... read more

To the families of Corey and Michelle James, I'm so sorry for your loss. They were so young, I know it's painful but remember Jehovah God assures us that there will be a resurrection at Acts 24:15. May this scripture and many more bring comfort and hope to both families.

Hello--My sympathy on the loss of two beautiful young people. I am a dear friend of Jo Ann Web's. She sent me the link to this memorial. It is truly a loving tribute to Corey and Michelle. I, too, lost a child. My angel, Candace, went home to be with the Lord on April 21, 1988 following a 9 day illness. She is with me each moment, and my heart aches for her. I listen to the song often, and it makes me think of her of course, and wonder what she'd be doing today. She died one month before her 19t... read more
