From wiki:
Early life
Corney was born on November 9, 1933 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He graduated from Saint Louis School in 1952, and he served in the United States Coast Guard. He subsequently moved to San Jose, California, where he became "a full-time bar owner and bouncer."

Bodybuilding career
Corney took up bodybuilding at 27, and he first competed at the age of 35. He entered and won his first contest in 1967, the Mr. Fremont, held in Northern California. He wins the following year. He also won: Mr. Heart of California, Mr. Northern California and Mr. Golden West. He continued to climb the bodybuilding ladder with wins at the 1970 Iron Man, the 1971 AAU Mr. California, the 1971 IFBB Mr. USA, and the 1972 IFBB Mr. America. He also won the IFBB Mr. Universe twice: in New York City in 1971, and in Baghdad, Iraq in 1972. He also won the IFBB Mr. America in 1972, Mr. World in 1973, and Mr. World in 1974.[1] Corney appeared in the 1977 movie Pumping Iron. He was also featured on the cover of its book version, Pumping Iron: The Art and Sport of Bodybuilding by Charles Gaines and George Butler.

Corney continued to compete in the 1980s. At the time, he admitted to using steroids, but he explained that training should be the bedrock of bodybuilding. He added that he was "97 percent training and three percent steroids." In 1994, Corney won the 60+ division of the Masters Olympia. He won again in 1995, he was placed 11th overall in 1996, and he took second in the 60+ division in 1997. He also competed in 1998 in the only Masters event ever to be held at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic. Corney remained active in the sport up until his death. He was inducted into the IFBB Hall of Fame in 2004.

Personal life and death
Corney resided in San Jose, California. In 1999, he suffered a heart attack while undergoing shoulder replacement surgery. A blood thinning medication that was given to him to treat the heart attack caused him to suffer two strokes. After a short period in a coma and some time using a wheelchair, Corney fought his way back to health.[citation needed]

Corney had a brain aneurysm on December 25, 2018, and died on January 1, 2019, at the age of 85 in Hughson, California. Shortly after his death, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted, "Ed Corney was a jewel of a guy. He was one of the greatest posers bodybuilding has ever seen, and he was a fantastic training partner. He inspired me and I’ll miss him dearly. My thoughts are with his family."
