Mr. Anthony J. Corrice, age 78, of Ogdensburg, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, May 26, 2019, at Claxton Hepburn Medical Center. During the last four years of Anthony’s life, he was a full-time caregiver for his wife, Margaret throughout her illness. Anthony was predeceased by his wife, Margaret “Peggy” Corrice on November 27, 2018.

Anthony is survived by four children, Colleen Corrice, of Mooers Forks, NY, Anthony C. Corrice, of Oviedo, FL, Sean Corrice, of Middletown, NY, and Lance Corrice and his wife Susan, of Oakdale, CT; four grandchildren, Lily and Amanda Corrice, and Meagan and Laura Morelock; five sibilings, Mary Louise McDonald of Ogdensburg, NY, Ronald A. “Joe” Corrice of Indianapolis, IN, Frederick R. Corrice of Ogdensburg, NY, Loretta Ann Cooke of Ogdensburg, NY, and Betty Jean Chambers of Ogdensburg, NY; an aunt, Dorothy Ritchie of Heuvelton, NY and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Anthony is predeceased by four siblings, Arthur Corrice, George J. Corrice, Margie Ann Corrice and Jeanette Daily.

Anthony was born on November 11, 1940, in Ogdensburg, NY, the fourth oldest child of George Alfred and Elva Julia (McNally) Corrice. He was a hard worker, working a paper route and his father’s gas station at a young age. Anthony played football and basketball as a young man. Anthony attended St. Mary’s Academy. Anthony enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1960. He served as a tank and Amtrac driver, allowing him to travel the world with the 2nd Marine Division. Anthony was stationed in Guam, Okinawa, Guantanamo, and was on a landing craft during Bay of Pigs Invasion. He also served on the Inspection Team for Soviet freight ships during the Cuban Embargo. He became involved in boxing in the military, where he was a middle-weight champion and was also a Judo practitioner. He was honorably discharged at the rank of Corporal E4 in 1964.

In 1964, Sister Grace Menton, a St. Mary’s Academy Nun, introduced Anthony to the love of his life, Margaret Raymon. Two years later, the couple wed on September 3, 1966, at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Ogdensburg with Msgr. Arthur M. Leary officiating. Upon his discharge from the military, Anthony joined his brother George in the moving business under Bekin Van Lines, travelling all over the United States. He returned to Ogdensburg and worked a series of jobs, starting with Wood’s Market. Anthony went on to spend a year and half with the Ogdensburg Fire Department as a firefighter. He was recruited by Chief LeBeau to join the Ogdensburg City Police Department as a patrolman then took a job at Oswego State University as a campus safety officer. Anthony returned to the Ogdensburg Police Department as a patrolman in 1970 and retired there after 20 years in 1990. Over his years of service, he received many letters of commendation and appreciation from citizens of the community that he had helped.

In 1969, Anthony started constructing his home on the Moreland Road, on land that he purchased from his father, with the help of his father-in-law, Fred Raymon. It was there that Anthony and Margaret raised their four children. Anthony was a devoted family man, often taking trips in the summertime with his family and spending time at their camp on the St. Lawrence River.

Calling hours will be held from 3:00PM to 6:00PM on Friday, May 31, 2019, at Frary Funeral Home, Ogdensburg. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019, at 10:00AM at St. Raphael’s Church. Burial will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery with military honors.

Donations may be made in Anthony’s memory to the Police Benevolent Association – NYS, 125 Broad St, New York, NY 10004.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of this man. My condolences go out to the Corrice family. There’s a Scripture d love to share that always comforted me when I lost someone close to me in death. It’s in Revelation 21:4 which causes says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither wklll mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This is a promise from God they he will end death forever in the future and we will see our loved ones again!
