James “Buster” Corley of Dave & Buster dies at 72

DALLAS (AP) — James “Buster” Corley, co-founder of restaurant and entertainment chain Dave & Buster’s, has died. He was 72 years old.

Corley died Monday in a Dallas hospital after police were called to his home in the Texas city, according to his family and police. Dave & Buster’s announced Corley’s death in a Twitter statement on Wednesday, but local authorities were still investigating the cause and manner of her death.

The idea for Dave & Buster’s was born in the late 1970s when Corley ran a restaurant in Dallas next to David Corriveau’s business that offered adult entertainment and games, according to the company’s website. The couple teamed up to open their first restaurant and gaming establishment in 1982, and the business has since expanded to multiple locations across the United States.
