Corey Tulop

NORMAN — A Celebration of the life of Corey Lee Tulop will be held on February 15, 2 p.m. at 3236 SE 15th in Del City, OK, at the Del Baptist Temple. Weary of reading obituaries noting someone’s courageous battle with death, Corey wanted it known that he died as a result of refusing to follow doctors’ orders, being stubborn, and raising hell for more than four decades. He was a bright star that burned for 41 years, and went out way before his time on Wed. 29, 2014.

Corey was born May 5, 1972 in Agat, Guam. Corey lived in Oklahoma all of his life, and made a reputation for himself from Texas all the way through Rhode Island, and was loved by many people far and wide. He served in the National Guard, survived Capitol Hill High School, and battled life on the South Side of Oklahoma City, and died in his home in Norman, OK, where he lived with his love Reba Gaddis. He fathered two boys, Christian and Jacob Furra, and hopes his memory will live on in their hearts and the hearts of his friends and family. He prays for his boys to grow to be old men and to not follow in his footsteps.

He was survived by his mother Debbie Powell and her husband David Powell, of Pleasant Hope, Missouri, his Step-Father Lester “Butch” Mathis of Oklahoma City, OK, three brothers, Christopher Tulop, and his wife Teresa, of Wichita, Kansas, Clayton Mathis of Springfield, Missouri, and Austin Powell of Pleasant Hope, Missouri, he is also survived by the love of his life Reba Gaddis. He is also survived by his lifelong friend Michael McCracken who was like a brother, and Joshua Taylor whom he helped raise from the age of 13, and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, and many good friends, too many too list! He is preceded in death by his father Emmanual Tulop, of Koror, Palau, his grandmother Jeannette Bergeron of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, his grandfather Joaquin Castro, of Dededo, Guam, and many friends.
