Gregory Allan Corica

Gregory Allan Corica, age 72, of Ellamore, WV, passed away from a sudden and short illness early Sunday morning, March 17, 2024, at his home with his loving wife by his side.

He was born December 10, 1951, in Buckhannon, WV, a son of the late Helen Lorane Bostick Corica and Tony Corica.

On September 18, 2009, he married his love, Sheila R. Workman Corica. In addition to his wife, he is survived by many beloved family members. Daughter, Mariah Corica-Lambert (Rob) and grandsons, Corben, Grahm, and Avery Lambert, all of Weston. Daughter, Sabrina Perkins (Brock) and granddaughter, Tori Perkins, and grandson, Easton Perkins, all of Buckhannon. Son, Jason Barcus of Clarksburg and grandsons, Zachary and Caleb Barcus and Preston Harris, of Buckhannon. Daughter, Amy Hackett (Dan) and grandsons, Jesse and Chase Hackett, all of Buckhannon. Sisters, Diana Deuley of Buckhannon, Darlene Corica of Parkersburg, and Judy Helton of Buckhannon, along with several nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one infant brother, Monty Carson, and one infant sister, Sharon Louise, along with brothers-in-law, Russel Deuley, Glenn Brookover, and Russell Helton.

Greg retired in 2012 from the local Carpenter’s Union. Throughout his lifetime he enjoyed carpentry work in and around his home, hunting, especially with his beagles, fishing, golfing, bowling, and, as a young man, drag racing his Plymouth Barracuda in Eldora, WV.

The past few years you could always find him on the golf course with a few of his grandsons or his golfing buddies, whom he loved spending time with and who became very dear to his heart. One of his most favorite things in life was spending time with his family and watching his children and grandchildren play sports.

Everyone who knew Greg loved him for his quick-witted sense of humor, which made everyone laugh, and his kind heart and big smile. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends who will always remember spending special times with him at sporting events and around his beautiful stone firepit.

In honoring Greg’s wishes, he will be cremated.

Online condolences may be made to the family at Poling-St. Clair Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
