Beloved son of the late Sheila and Ned Corry. A Noe Valley native, he attended St. Phillips School and maintained lifelong friendships with his classmates. Growing up he spent countless summers in Ireland on the farm in Co. Kerry and Co. Clare with family, from which he held cherished memories. Eamon attended St Ignatius College Preparatory, where he played soccer and lead the team to a WCAL championship as the Most Valuable Player.
He proudly played soccer for the San Francisco Glens Soccer Club and Irish Football with the Harps, the Sons of Boru and the Cusacks winning multiple North American Championships. Almost always wearing the number 7, he was notorious for his ferocity both on and off the field.
He became a sprinkler fitter and worked as a proud member of Local 483, before becoming employed by and retiring from the San Francisco Water Department, Local 38. He was actively involved in St. Veronica's Catholic School, where he served as Men's Club President.
Eamon throughout his life was a proud San Franciscan, who was passionate about sports, family and friends. He was known for his selfless generosity and would give the shirt off his back to anyone without question.
He is survived by his two loving daughters Jennifer Corry and Colleen (Joey) Kellison, his granddaughter Kennedy Meabh, Megan Corry, and many aunts, uncles and cousins in the United States, Ireland and England. He will be remembered for his loyalty, strength and generosity of spirit and his heart of gold will be sorely missed.
