Obituary of Cory Edward Glad

Cory Edward Glad


Age 60, of Eden Prairie passed away June 2nd, 2020. 


Born to Dennis and Barbara Glad, Cory graduated from Hamline University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Psychology and attained a Master’s of Public Administration from University of Southern California.  Continuing education was important to Cory as he achieved licenses and certifications in Long Term Care Administration, Licensed Nursing Home Administrator, and Senior Professional in Human Resources.  Cory dedicated his life to the service of others having worked 40 years in long term healthcare.  He enriched the lives of countless elderly, handicapped, disadvantaged and vulnerable through his caring compassion and sense of humor.  Cory is our HERO!


Preceded in death by brother Taylor Glad.  Survived by his loving wife, Cori Glad; parents Dennis and Barb; brother Carter Glad; sister in-law Beth Anne Glad; sons Carson Glad (Alissa Wellington) and Cassidy Glad (Julie Goltzman); step daughters Heather Budisalovich (Matthew), Carrie Scott, Gina Palmi (Cody Neubarth); step son William Palmi; grandsons Christopher Glad, Cameron Glad, Emmett Budisalovich, Wyatt Budisalovich; granddaughter Alice Glad; and many nieces, nephews, loving relatives and friends. 


Cory was a devoted husband, loving father, and as a grandfather he took great pride in spoiling his grandkids.  Cory was immensely proud of his family.  Cory was a fan of all sporting events but especially loved attending football, basketball, and baseball games.  He loved playing golf with friends and camping with family members, especially his brother and sister in-laws. 


A very special thank you to all of Cory’s staff, residents, and friends at Centennial Gardens, and to all nurses, doctors, and staff at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.  Heroes walk among us!
