BROWNSBURG – Corey Joseph Allen, 40, Brownsburg, passed away Thursday at his home.

He was born June 1, 1979, in Massena, N.Y., to Keith E. and Virginia K. (Arquette) Allen.

He married Amy Nicolai Oct. 15, 2011, and she survives.

He was a dedicated daddy to Alainah Grace and Mason Joseph, both at home. He was so proud of them and was completely devoted to them.

He was a 1997 graduate of Orleans High School.

Corey worked as a heavy equipment operator for Miller Pipeline for more than 17 years. He was a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 103.

He loved animals and is survived by his beloved pets, Niko and Reno.

Corey also was an avid sports fan. He always rooted for the Indianapolis Colts and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He watched NASCAR and rooted for Jeff Gordon faithfully until his retirement. And, of course, he coached Alainah and Mason in Little League and soccer.

In addition to being survived by his parents, wife and children, Corey also is survived by his four sisters, for whom he was fiercely protective: Terri (Pete) Pfister, Garner, N.C.; Daniele Bohlman, Bedford; Tami Herko, Clayton, N.C.; and Krystal (Henry) Shetler, Mitchell. He also leaves behind Amy’s parents, Stanley and Linda Nicolai of Syracuse, and his brothers-in-law Curtis Nicolai and Chad (Amy) Nicolai, both of Syracuse. Corey was no better uncle than to his many nephews and two nieces.

Corey was preceded in death by both his maternal and paternal grandparents, Howard and Eileen Arquette and Roy and Marjorie Allen; a brother-in-law, Joey Bohlman, and his beloved lab, Zoey.

Funeral service will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, in the Memorial Chapel of Chastain Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Mitchell. Cremation will follow.

The family will receive friends from 3:00 p.m. until the service on Tuesday at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you consider donations to the Hendricks County Humane Society, 3033 E. Main St., Danville, IN 46122

    Corey was great to work with coaching baseball. He was so determined to help each player learn the game. I’m deeply saddened and my thoughts and prayers go out to the Allen family:

    God Bless this family. I had the pleasure of working with Keith in the piston Dept. at G.M. Such a nice guy! Met Crystal when I ran Santa's Helpers and she ran a story in the Times Mail for us. She's a Sweetheart. Sending prayers.
