Wride’s wife Nanette had three sons from a previous marriage. She and Wride had a boy and a girl together, his relatives said.

Blair Olsen, Wride’s uncle and neighbor, didn’t know why he went in to law enforcement, but said Wride’s father had been in the Utah County search and rescue and another uncle had been a police officer in Spanish Fork.

"I think that gave him a kind of direction to go."

Wride’s relatives said he and his father were very close and often went on pheasant hunting trips in South Dakota. They had recently bought a few cows to experiment in the cattle business.

Cory also raised horses on his farm and rode a horse in parades as part of the Utah County Sheriff’s Posse, said his cousin and neighbor Blaine Wride.

"They’re a really close family," Wride said, describing how the family would spend much of the summer fishing at Fish Lake. "They’re always involved with each other."

Cory Wride was active in the LDS Church and attended the Benjamin 1st Ward.
