After his death, his father said that “I don’t want to see any parent lose a child over heroin.” Throughout his growing up years, Cory was supported by his mother.
She had struggled to provide for everything that Cory and his older brother Shaun needs.
Alongside Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester, and Katie Cassidy, he starred in the 2011 movie Monte Carlo.
It took 11 years for Cory to see his father again where they had a heart-to-heart talk.
His works in the entertainment industry didn’t just stop with his work in television and film.
He also formed his own indie-pop band, “Bonnie Dune,” before he even started in Glee.
He finally got his alternative school high school diploma in 2011. They share the same parents, Joe Monteith, a military man in Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and Ann Mc Gregor, an interior decorator.
Their parents divorced when he was seven years old.
He even attended alternative programs for troubled teens but all efforts of keeping him away from strife remained were of no help.
