More Info

Corey E. Silbaugh was born on December 31, 1982 to David and Robin Silbaugh. He graduated from Juda High School in 2001 where he played football, basketball, and baseball. It was while playing baseball he got his nickname "Primo" and wore his favorite number 11.

Corey met Jessica "Boots" at JJO Band Camp on August 5, 2007, they were engaged there in 2009 and were married there on August 17, 2013. Corey and Boots welcomed their only son Draven into the world on May 1st, 2010 at a whopping 8 pounds 15 ounces he was Corey's greatest love.

Corey possessed a passion for baseball and had a life dream of visiting every MLB stadium in the United States. He loved the Cubs and wasn't afraid to tell you, "I'm not a fair-weather fan" he would always say. He enjoyed comic books specifically Wolverine and Deadpool, playing video games (no matter how mad they made him), and building Lego projects with his son Draven.

Corey will always be remembered for his infectious gap-toothed smile and witty sense of humor. He was known for his dedication to friends and family and would give the shirt off his back for anyone. He showed that dedication when he decided to join the Hillsboro Fire Department in 2016, he was always humble about serving the department and always did what was asked no questions. Corey was an exceptional husband and father and continuously gave himself above all others.

The outpouring love his friends and family have received during this difficult time has been a testament to the love he showed others throughout his life.

Corey had made the decision back in 2016 to become an organ donor, not only was he helping others by joining the fire department he made a selfless decision to help others in their time of need. By being an organ donor Corey continues on his humble legacy and has the potential to help over hundreds of recipients. He was a hero his entire life and by being an organ donor he is a real life SUPERHERO!

Corey was the main provider in his family and with his unexpected passing there has been unexpected financial costs. Many have reached out and asked if there was any way they could help so I have set up this fundraiser so those wanting to help can give a donation to the family.

Funds will go directly to Jessica and Draven, with some of the funds being given to Donate Life in memory of Corey and the SUPERHERO he was.

There will be a celebration of life once Covid-19 bans have been lifted and once plans have been made information will be added. The celebration of life will be held at the Hillsboro Firemens Community Center in Hillsboro, Wisconsin and internment at Conkale Cemetary in Boaz to follow. Dates and times are TBD.

The family would like to thank all of the friends and family who have been by their side through this tragedy. A huge thank you to the staff at Gundersen La Crosse, the Hillsboro Fire Department, and Tailor Made Products. We pray that all the recipients surgeries go well and there is no rejection so they can all go on to live long lives.
