Corey Scott Wilkins of Blenheim passed away on Sunday November 5, 2023 at the age of 61 years. He was the son of the late Rose (Chilcott) Wilkins who passed away just thirteen days before him, and the late Kenneth Junior Wilkins in 2011. He is survived by his sister Sheri Huffman (Greg), his brothers Jeff (late Diane), David (Kathleen) and many nieces and nephews.
Corey was dubbed “Candy Man” during his years of delivering for Courtney’s Candy. From there he went on to work at the Beer Store and for Hector & Marilyn Delanghe at Delhaven Orchards. He made lots of friends wherever he went and never passed up an opportunity to have fun. He will be remembered for his love of animals, especially “Pete”, his Jack Russell Terrier and for his no B.S. opinion of Canadian politics.
Cremation has taken place. A private family graveside service will take place at the Springfield Cemetery where Corey will be laid to rest with his Mom and Dad.
