Age 22, of Moon Twp., tragically passed away on Tuesday, June 25, 2019. Beloved son of James and Cynthia (Cropper) LaGuardia; dear brother of Anthony (fiancée Kaitlynn Hogle) LaGuardia; grandson of the late Anthony J. and Adeline LaGuardia and William and Shirley Cropper; also survived by aunts and uncles Kelly (Eric) Hall, Sandy (Sam) DeFrancesco, Lee (Melissa) Arbogast, Wesley (Grace) Cropper, Wayne (Kathy) Cropper, Joyce (Robert) Gratson, Barbara (Dave) LaGuardia-Korb, many cousins, family members, friends, and his faithful canine companion, Harley.  

Corey was a graduate of Moon Area High School Class of 2015.  Corey was an industrious young man and a hard worker.  He held an Associate Degree and had licenses from the City of Pittsburgh Stationery Engineering, Universal Refrigeration, and N.I.U.L.P.E.   He was a member of Operator Engineers Local #95 and Steamfitters 449 Local Union and was employed as a Building Engineer at U.S. Steel.  

Corey was a respectful, caring young man with a fantastic sense of humor and striking smile. He brought cheer to his family and friends – often teasing that he was “the favorite child.”  He truly had a selfless heart-of-gold, helping anyone in any way he could.

Corey had a strong love for his family.  He chose to set his own life on hold to stay with and take care of his 92-year-old grandmother.  He deeply grieved her recent passing.

At such a young age, Corey left a profound impact on family and friends that is everlasting.  He truly was a person who lived up to his favorite quote: “A man that is not close to his family is not a man at all.”
