Korey Carl Callahan Kemp – January 7, 2014

Kemp Obit PicKorey Carl Callahan Kemp was taken from this world in a car accident on January 7, 2014 in Round Rock, Texas.
Memorial services will be at 10:00 a.m., Monday, January 13, 2014, in St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church with the Rev. Jo Roberts Mann, rector, and the Rev. Dr. Robert Pace, associate rector, officiating.  Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.
He was born on September 19, 1969 in Dimmitt, Texas to Boo and Carl Lee Kemp.  He was baptized in the First Methodist Church.  From his first day on this earth he expected great things from the world and from himself.  He believed in always doing the right thing even in the face of life’s adversity and he was always disappointed if others did not also do what was right.  He grew up in Lubbock, Texas where he graduated from Lubbock High School.  He was an avid tennis player on his high school team and continued his passion for tennis until his death.  He went on to graduate from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor in Science.  Most of Korey’s professional career was spent in restaurant and hotel management.  At the time of his death he was a manager with Hard Tails Bar and Grill in Georgetown, Texas.
Korey was wickedly funny, loved Saturday Night Live and all types of comedy.  He was bright, witty and always saw the funny little nuances in life which kept all of his friends and family laughing.  We often commented to Korey on his sense of humor and he just laughed and said “I cannot help it I just see it that way”.  He loved all movies, had a passion for 80’s and 90’s rock music and live bands.  He mostly loved spending time with his friends and family and hanging out with those closest to him.  Words cannot begin to express how deeply he was loved by all who knew him and we will miss him every single day.
He is survived by his Mother, Boo Pipkin Kemp of Amarillo.  His Father, Carl Lee Kemp of Amarillo.  His sister Shawn Maurice and her husband Jeff of Georgetown.  His sister Shannon Halley of Austin.  His nieces and nephew Eliza Walton, Txai Villacorta and Sophie Halley.  His Aunts La Dawn Reichling of California, Ginger Ward of Atlanta, Georgia and her daughter Jinsie.  And finally his cousins, Gayle Callahan of Amarillo, Jane Callahan of El Paso, Simmie Callahan V of Amarillo, Cody Haney of The Woodlands and Hunter Callahan of Houston.  And, many, many dear friends and colleagues all over the US.
Korey was a unique and special person. We will miss his funny sense of humor, his innate need to make sure everyone in his life was happy and his wonderful, gregarious, giving demeanor. May he find peace with the angels and all of the family who have gone before him.  We love you Korey with every ounce of our being and will see you again in the future.
The family suggests memorials be made to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Columbarium Fund, 1601 S. Georgia St., Amarillo, TX 79102.
