• Middaugh, Corey W

Corey William Middaugh took his final flight to eternal peace on December 30, 2016 surrounded by those who loved him. Corey was born in Spokane, Washington on January 21, 1968 to Terry and Julie Middaugh. He graduated from Northwest Christian High School in 1986 and then from Washington State University with a BA degree in business. Always a hard worker, he gravitated toward the construction industry where he developed the reputation as a dependable employee while also earning the respect and friendship of his coworkers, many of whom became like a second family to him. Corey belonged to Iron Workers Local 14 in Spokane and worked for many companies including Garco Construction, Dix Corporation, and most recently Nordholm Companies. He was very proud of his work, especially for the many large projects he oversaw as a superintendent.
Corey traveled all over the country for his job, but when he was home he could usually be found either flying or fishing. Introduced to aviation at an early age, he earned his private pilots license while in high school and spent countless hours boring holes in the sky. He was an active member of the International Aerobatic Club and flew years of competition aerobatics along with his dad and brother. Corey was also an avid fisherman beginning at the age he was old enough to hold a rod. He fished numerous bodies of water and always had some good stories to tell of his experiences. He loved to be out in his boat enjoying the peacefulness of the open water. Corey liked to give the fish lots of options and could often be spotted on Lake Pend d'Oreille with multiple lines out regardless of the amount of people onboard.
Corey had a big heart. We will miss his humor, his smile, and his unique perspective on life that would always make us laugh.
Corey was an organ donor and the surgeons preserved all of his major organs which are giving many recipients the gift of normal life.
Corey was preceded in death by his mother Julie (Chase). He is survived by father Terry and wife Elaine La Tourelle; brother Craig, wife Gina, their children Ashley and Taylor; Uncle Don Welch, wife Sue, their children Scott and Shelly; Uncle Don Middaugh, wife Gloria, their children Karen and Kevin.
Memorials may be made to the National Stroke Foundation.
A memorial service will be held 11:00 AM, Saturday January 21 at Chattaroy Community Church 3711 E. Chattaroy Rd.
