Cory Keller

Cory Rick Keller passed away August 24, 2021 in Salt Lake City, Utah surrounded by family after a courageous battle with Covid.

He was born in Salt Lake City, October 9, 1970 to Rick and Tina Keller. Cory was the youngest child for 8 years, until his baby brother was born, making him the middle child of three boys.

As a child, you would always find Cory on two wheels, whether that meant a peddle bike, a dirt bike, or a motorcycle. Cory was a rebel and loved to keep his parents on their toes, he was always having fun and usually the life of the party. He worked as a truck driver since he was in his early 20’s and built many friendships with everyone who met him. Cory had a way with people and always made sure everyone he met felt important and welcome. He was a friend to everyone that knew him.

Cory had two children, Ricci and Trever. He loved his kids very much; they were his pride and joy. If you knew Cory, you probably also knew his two fur babies that he loved dearly, Jack and Kyla.

Cory loved his motorcycle and was passionate about riding. The friends he rode with were also very much his family. He always had creative hobbies, most recently wine making. He also loved golfing with friends and family.

He is survived by his children, Ricci Keller and Trever Keller; his father, Rick Keller; his younger brother Kris Keller (Stephanie); and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. He is preceded in death by his mother, Tina Keller and his older brother, Troy Keller.

Cory was very well loved by everyone that knew him. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He has left a hole in all of us that will never be filled.

There will be a viewing and funeral service celebrating his life at the Maverik Center, September 1, 2021. Hours: Viewing: 2:30-4:30 pm - Funeral Service: 4:30 - 6:00pm.

3200 S Decker Lake Drive, West Valley City, UT 84110.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Intermountain Medical Center as well as to all of his biker family that has been incredibly supportive.

Our favorite thing to do was go out for Mexican food and to make sure we didnt get cheese on our smothered burritos. When he was going to physical therapy for his shoulder he would always stop by my work and bring a king size snickers and a Red Bull drink. I loved his hugs and his laugh was the cutest. I love him dearly and he will always be in my Heart

I knew Cory from High School and over the years we got out to golf from time to time. I loved b.s.'ing with him and reminiscing about old times. One day we were golfing at Forest Dale together and his phone started ringing. Which, as any golfer knows is kind of a no-no and a little obnoxious. Cory quiets his phone and we continue on. Minutes later here it goes again,and again,and again. Finally he answers it and he's like "nope,you must have the wrong number". His phone just keeps on ringing like every few minutes...and he's like "NO, I'm not selling a F#$%^ taco cart!" LOL! Turns out one of his buddies had posted an ad on KSL for a taco cart for like $500 bucks! (Usually they go for more like $5K-10K) I remember him being like "I think I know who got me!" We were dying laughing and I always tell that story cause it was such a great prank. I enjoyed giving him a hard time about everything,his wine,his golf game,his dating game(or lack thereof). He was proud of his knives,his crafts,those cool rings that he made out of coins. He was a great dude and did not have to die. I saw him on the day he passed and just found myself feeling that it all could have been avoided. I'll miss you Cory,I hope you are out there on the best rides and golf courses that the next life has to offer buddy.
