Cory Hock

May 30, 1956 — October 29, 2020

On October 29, 2020, H. Cory Hock, 64, passed away due to a recently diagnosed medical condition. Cory was born on May 30, 1956 and lived most of his life in Denver, Colorado. Yet it was fitting that he passed away in Imperial, Nebraska, his favorite hunting and fishing “honey hole.”
Cory attended Emmaus Lutheran School during his younger years, then Lutheran High School for one year, and completed his education at North High School. He was an accomplished builder and had the skill to fix just about anything. Cory took pride in working very hard to support his family, and he completed his successful career as a Construction Superintendent in which he won many safety awards. Throughout his career, Cory assembled a significant crew of loyal coworkers who enjoyed working for him because of the care he demonstrated on and off the jobsite.
An avid hunter and fisher, Cory was an adventurous outdoorsmen at heart. He looked forward to leaving behind the crowded city and spending time surrounded by God’s creation with a few close family members or friends. He patiently taught others how to appreciate these hobbies, and successfully planted a passion for fishing and exploring in the hearts of his grandsons, Judah and Eli. During his retirement, Cory volunteered his time as a park ranger, kept the many bird feeders in his backyard well stocked, beautifully restored antique firearms, and spoiled his grandsons as often as possible. Cory had nicknames for everyone and everything, and he connected with many through his silly sense of humor. We cherish the funny memories he has left us with.
Cory is survived by Kris Hock, to whom he was married for 40 years, his daughter, Jessica Albin (Lance, Judah, and Eli), and his son, Jared Hock. Additionally, his loving sisters, Jodi Garmatz (Joe) and Jill Sheyko (Russ), who unconditionally supported him, especially during the last months of his life. Cory was preceded in death by his parents, Dyanne Hock Bennett and Fredrick William Hock (Bill), and his nephew, Jeff Cox.
An outdoor celebration of Cory’s life will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 3pm at Crown Hill Cemetery in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Attendees are encouraged to wear camo and plaid in Cory’s honor. There will also be a Memorial Hunt held in Imperial, Nebraska. A date and time for the hunt are yet to be determined, please contact Cory’s family if you are interested in participating.
Memorial donations in Cory’s name can be directed towards the Youth Mentoring Program, which facilitates safe and educational hunts for kids. Checks can be made payable to the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation and can be mailed to:
