Corey Holmgren

Chaplain (CPT) Corey Comish Holmgren was born and raised in Tremonton, UT. He graduated from Bear River High School in 2002. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Florianopolis, Brazil. Corey graduated from Utah State University and then went on to receive two Masters degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy and Divinity from Amridge University in Montgomery, AL. As a therapist, he worked at Lifestar Network in Murray, UT specializing in sexual addiction recovery and worked with families, couples, teenagers, and groups. Corey also served in the Utah Army National Guard as a Chaplain assigned to the 19th Group Special Forces. He loved being in the military and particularly loved working with soldiers. In both professions, he was focused on helping people in their darkest times. Corey had completed both Air Assault training (repelling out of helicopters) and Airborne School (jumping out of planes). The morning of January 19, 2019, Chaplain Holmgren attended a military event where he shared with recently returned home soldiers the resources that were available to them and their families for a positive reintegration experience. He once again offered his services and dedication to them as their chaplain. That afternoon, he went swimming with his family. While swimming laps, he dropped under the water and never resurfaced. He was never able to be revived. Corey and his wife, Mindi, were married in 2006 and together they have four great kids; Nathan, Nora, Lexie, and Jack. Before his passing, Corey enjoyed dating his wife, spending time with his kids, and reading. His family members like to think he still enjoys those same things.
