Corey Besack was born with a natural disposition to do good. From his earliest days he was truly happiest when he was able to give of himself and help someone in need. No matter what the situation, Corey gave from his heart and soul, and did so with genuine love.
Corey cherished his family and friends and treated everyone around him with love and compassion. He had the ability to transcend life's distractions and connect in a very meaningful way with everyone he met along his journey.
Music was another source of love and happiness for Corey, and served as his connection to countless people from many walks of life. He was an exceptional guitar player and one of many musicians in his extended family. Playing the guitar was a constant in Corey's life, and he understood and deeply appreciated the healing power of music.
Corey's generosity and willingness to put others first defined him. His love and appreciation for life, music and the guitar were inspiring, and became the motivation to create this foundation. Corey left this world too soon, but those of us who were fortunate enough to have known him will forever be grateful.
The Corey Besack Foundation, through the sponsorship of C. F. Martin & Co. Guitars, is devoted to celebrate and honor Corey's memory by donating guitars to organizations whose roots are founded in caring for others with a deep appreciation for the healing power of music. In true Corey style, we also look forward to making many great connections along the way.
