Cory Thompson

Cory Thompson, 36, of Randolph, New York, passed away, unexpectedly, on January 4, 2023.

Cory was born June 6, 1986, to Randall and Ann (Mansfield) Thompson.

He graduated from Randolph Central School in 2005 and then received an Associate Degree in Applied Science from Jamestown Community College. He then went on to receive a Radiology Technician Degree from WCA Radiology.

Throughout his college years, he worked as a CNA at Lutheran Social Services. He eventually moved to Ellenton, Florida and worked as a Social Worker Assistant for Sarasota Point.

Upon returning to New York, Cory worked as a personal shopper for various shopping platforms, such as Instacart.

He found happiness in living at “The Landing” in Cherry Creek. He had an uncanny wit and a beautiful smile. Cory had lots of hobbies including photography (especially nature scenes), restoration of objects made from wood and furniture, collecting old coins, making walking sticks, and working on his car by learning through YouTube videos. Cory loved to travel and be outdoors, and enoyed looking for shells and sharks teeth by the ocean. Cory was always eager to help his friends and family, by cleaning their homes, detailing their cars, solving their technology problems, fixing anything that was broken. He was the best friend you could have.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, Frank (Janet) Mansfield, Mary Jane Nobles and Melvin Thompson.

He is survived by his mother, Ann Thompson (Phil Harrington) of Randolph New York and father, Randall Thompson (Karen Dolce) of Jamestown, New York; a brother Brett Thompson of Randolph, New York and Joe Harrington of Jamestown, New York; his Grandmother Kay (Albert) Hitchcock, of Conewango Valley, many loving aunts, uncles and cousins, and his lifelong, best friend, Katie (Quattrone) Jordan.

Family will receive friends and relatives for visitation on Saturday, January 14th 2023 from 11:30AM-1:30PM at DiStasio Funeral Home, 478 Route 83, South Dayton, New York.
