Cork Holley always returned to Pequot Lakes
Corliss John Holley — better known in the lakes area as Cork — has lived in many different places, but he always returned to his hometown of Pequot Lakes.
Cork was born on a dairy farm two miles west of Pequot Lakes on Feb. 28, 1933. Today — Thursday, Feb. 28 — he celebrates his 80th birthday at his home on Brown Street, not so far from where his life began. His parents, Arlo and Marvel Holley, farmed on what is now 13th Avenue off of County Road 17.
