Born in Athabasca but raised on a farm two kilometers away from Boyle, Kory grew up in a musical family. Mom was an elementary music teacher while Dad had an ear for music which enabled him to play almost any instrument. Kory sang in the church choir and learned to read music after joining the school band.
Kory had a typical rural Alberta childhood which included playing such sports as basketball, hockey, volleyball and baseball. Like the majority of Canadian youth, he had aspirations of becoming a professional hockey player but after winning a Provincial Championship with the Athabasca Winter Hawks, Kory instead got a volleyball scholarship to Red Deer College where he completed two years of the Arts program before receiving his Education degree from the University of Alberta.
