It causes great sadness to announce the sudden passing of Carleton University men’s hockey builder and Ravens Hall Of Famer Paul Correy (BEng/74).
Mr. Correy graduated from Carleton in 1974. Strangely enough, his role at Carleton, post-graduation, required more involvement than ever before. Coinciding with Paul’s graduation, Carleton’s men’s varsity hockey was suspended.
Paul Correy put a tremendous amount of time and energy in bringing back the men’s hockey team, which was re-launched as a competitive club in 1991 after Carleton students voted in a referendum to bring the team back, and a decade later, provided the university with 1000 names to support the cause. His commitment to the team, and the cause, can be traced through his roles as a coach, general manager, fundraiser and, of course, the team’s number one fan.
In 2006-2007, his hard work paid off with revival of the varsity Ravens men’s hockey program and the opening of a new $13 million ice house complex. His tireless efforts were recognized at the 2007 Carleton Alumni Association Awards as Volunteer of the Year and the Carleton Athletics Hall of Fame in 2014.
Away from the rink, Mr. Correy founded and managed a highly successful company Correy and Associates Inc. The company was formed in 1985 to offer management services and investment analysis in the oil and gas and precious metal sectors.
Gifts made in Paul’s memory will be used to support future generations of the Carleton Men’s Hockey Program.
