Corey Thomas Williamson, 29, of Ooltewah, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, October 31, 2019, completing his journey here to enter his home in heaven.

Corey was born in Chattanooga and lived most of his life in Ooltewah. He was currently employed for the City of Chattanooga Public Works Division. He was a member of Brainerd Hills Church of God and a graduate of Hamilton Heights Academy. Corey loved spending time outdoors. He enjoyed camping, fishing, and spending time with family and friends when time allowed. He was quick to make a joke to make people laugh. His smile and laugh were contagious. He was a kind and compassionate person with a heart of gold. He was always willing to help his family, friends, and strangers when they had a need. The world was a brighter place with Corey in it, and he will be deeply missed by all who knew him. While his life on earth was too short, his loved ones take comfort in knowing he is at home with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and they will see him again one day.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Tommy Evans Morgan.

Surviving are his parents, Eric and Tommie Williamson; sister, Taylor Williamson; fiancée, Isha Siri and her children, Jayda and Mason; paternal grandfather, Raymond (Carol) Williamson; paternal grandmother, Lois Jones; maternal grandmother, Martha Morgan; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family will receive friends from 3-7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, at the Valley View Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 4, at the funeral home with Bishop Charles E. Pittman and Bishop Dwight Henderson officiating, with visitation one hour prior to the service.

Burial will follow at New McDonald Cemetery.
