May 11, 1982 - July 13, 2013
I would like to take a moment to remember Cory Monteith.
He came from a horrible background and got cast in a world-famous television show that has undoubtedly had an impact on many, many people. He himself has had his own kind of impact, being humble and kind and just overall an amazing person. He checked himself into rehab.
This is an insanely horrible tragedy and I’m typing in tears but there is no way in hell I’m forgetting Cory any time soon, if ever at all. I’m definitely sending my love to his family, Lea, the rest of the cast, and his friends.
We love you, Cory. You were regarded as family to the cast and all your fans. Rest in peace.
Sending out all my thoughts and prayers to Cory’s family, friends and fans. We will stand together. We will stand strong. I will hold your hands. We will get through this.
We invite you to share your thoughts on this tragedy with us, so we all have a chance to cope together and honor the wonderful man we all know Cory is. He remains in our hearts. He was absolutely wonderful, an incredible role model and we can all as fans, get through this together.
It has been confirmed by Vancouver Police that Cory was found dead in his hotel room earlier today. We are absolutely shocked and dismayed by this news. We wish his family and friends and fans peace and comfort during this time. Cory was a beautiful, wonderful, kind, charming, talented young man, and we will all miss him from the bottom of our hearts. He was truly incredible, an incredible actor and human being and we adored him for that. Rest in peace.

“[On trying to become an actor] I had already done a million jobs, every job under the sun you can imagine pretty much. I worked at those quick car oil change spots. I was a roofer and a taxi driver. So I moved to Vancouver with two t-shirts, six pairs of socks, and, like, slept on the floor until I figured the whole auditioning thing out. Meanwhile, I had a day job in a full-service cake shop.”
