Cory Bernard Spencer

Sunrise: December 10, 1977

Sunset: March 25, 2024

Cory Bernard Spencer, was born to Henry and Yvonne Welch on December 10, 1977 in Brooklyn, NY. Tragically, he passed away on February 24, 2024, at the age of 46. His family is heartbroken, and devastated by his untimely passing.

Cory posessed many talents starting at young age with free hand drawing, a promising baseball career and dancing. (Evident by the way he captured audiences hearts with his Michael Jackson moves). As he grew, that love of music evolved into writing, recording and performing his own original songs. He even created his own full length album, “Blinded By Visions of Gold.” Cory exceeded at anything he was passionate about, including the love of fashion and clothing design. This lead to him owning his own boutiques and establishing the brands, Godhead Creations and CryptoClothingUS.

Cory met his soul mate, Janine and together they shared a 20 year loving relationship, producing 3 precious girls, Milani, Naliyah and Alara. In addition, he was also the proud father of Lakeisha, Zahir, Jahki and Jirrell. Cory is survived by his wife, mother, 7 children, 3 grandchildren (Presentae Jr, Harlem, Paradise) and siblings (Karen(Daniel), Shawn, Tiffany, Shaquana, Josh, Ivory, Ivan). Cory was preceded in death by the father, Henry Welch  and his father-in-law, Leonard Tallarico.

Cory will be greatly missed! He was a true shining star to all of us! May he rest in peace!
