Cory is the son of Bruce and Jan Koster and graduated from Windom, Minn. in 2004 and he is currently studying Computer Science at SDSU. The couple has known each other most of their lives. Cory attended his early school years in Cherokee; although he moved away from town, he continued to keep in contacted with family and friends in Cherokee. He also came to visit during the summer time where he and Tricia would hang out with mutual friends.

The couple did not start dating until college when the two started to communicate on-line with each other. Soon their feelings became know to each other. Tricia was attending SDSU and Cory was at Mankato State University.

After a year of dating, Cory decided to pop the question to Tricia. The couple was in Cherokee visiting during fair time and the night of the demolition derby was also the one-year anniversary of the couple. Cory had a surprise awaiting Tricia at Spring Lake Park. With the help Tricia's parents keeping her occupied, Cory proceeded with his plans at the park.

Tricia received a call from Cory asking her to meet him at the park. Once arriving at the park Tricia discovered what Cory had been up too. On the west side of the lake there was a stairway leading down to the lake where a concrete slab sits. Cory had illuminated the stairs with candles that directed her to the slab were he had wrote out "I love you" in candles.

Being in a special place on a special day, Cory asked his special lady to be his wife. After catching her breath, Tricia said yes.
