Corey was born in Cushing on May 9, 1970 to parents James C. and Myra Lea (Isbell) McCrackin. He grew up there and graduated from Cushing High School with the class of 1988. Corey was a great wrestler in high school and went to state twice.
Corey was an avid outdoorsman, he could often be found lifting weights, working on his 1972 Mustang fastback, woodworking, or building things with his hands. He loved to spend time with family and have them over to grill out and watch the Sooners play. Growing up, his daughters played softball and Corey would rarely miss a game or opportunity to take them fishing. He loved his kids, and all kids for that matter, but was especially fond of his two grandchildren and anxiously awaited the arrival of his third. Corey’s laugh was contagious, he was known for his bright sense of humor and pranks.
