Obituary of Walter “Mike” Corriere

Walter “Mike” Corriere entered into rest unexpectedly on 1/14/2024. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah on 5/25/1956 he was the son of Eleanor “Jenny” and Samual Corriere. Mike attended Lockport Senior High School, graduating in 1975. He worked at the former Harrison Radiator/Delphi factory for 30 years before his retirement in 2006. In his younger years Mike enjoyed running, playing softball and was an avid bowler in many local leagues.

Left with loving memories are his daughter, Karin (Nathan) Morea, siblings Tammy Granton, Robert Corriere and Sandy (Michael) Hillman, Louis Corriere, his aunt, Edie (Jack) Kirshberger, his five cherished grandsons, Alex and Carter Infantino, Chesley, Nolan and Simon Morea, several cousins, nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his daughter, Jessica Corriere Infantino and grandson Bennett Morea.

In recent years Mike’s happiest days were spent with his grandsons. “Papa” could often be found swimming, playing basketball or catch, cheering at a soccer game, doing a puzzle, enjoying some chicken nuggets or just hanging out with one or more of his boys.

Friends may call on Saturday January 20, 2024 from 1-4 at the Taylor & Reynolds Funeral Home, 70 Niagara Street, Lockport, where Services will be held at 4:00 pm. In lieu of flowers donations to cure SMA or a charity of one's choice would be appreciated by the family. Please visit
