Born in New Hartford on January 9, 1978, Coryell was the son of the late Blondell T. Heyward and Robert Cave. Raised and educated locally, he attended T. R. Proctor High School. As the “baby” of the family, his siblings took care of him as if he were their own son. Cory was a natural jokester and a sociable man who knew how to make people happy. Cory was an entrepreneur, his specialty was dancing, and he was always happy. His loud laugh made everyone smile, including him. He enjoyed the camaraderie of get-togethers, and he was always the light and life of the party! Cory is survived by his son, Xavier Anthony Heyward; his girlfriend, Kierstin Smith; and his siblings, Wendall Heyward and Katrina, Leslie Heyward, Marvina Heyward, Vincent Heyward, and Tamara Burke, all of Utica. He will also be remembered by his nieces and nephews who he had a special uncle-brother bond with, Lamika, Keona, Koiya, Nobie, Wendall Jr., Gavonda, Sevelle, Unique, Desmond, Jessica, Shakoiya, Keona, Hydia, Omari, Vincent Jr., Tyrell, Shavelle, Shykiera, Travon, Shaunice, and Omillio; a host of great-nieces, especially Mecca, great-nephews, especially Ja-mi with whom he shared a close bond; 3 great-great nieces; cousin, Keith Davis of Brooklyn, NY, and friends too numerous to count, especially: Buff Bosco, Jeff, Jason, and Cliff Billins, and Mike, Mouse, and Adrian. Visitation will be held Friday, September 17, 2021 from 10:00 – 12:00 at the Eannace Funeral Home, Inc., 932 South St., corner of Hammond Ave. Coryell’s funeral service and Home Going celebration will commence on Friday at 12:00 at the funeral home immediately upon conclusion of visitation.
