Mr. Corbett was a devoted Braves Baseball fan and loved watching his grandson play baseball. He was a skilled craftsman, who loved whittling wood and creating the things he needed. For many years he was a member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Lake Park United Methodist and he later attended church at Fellowship Home. Mr. Corbett was a good ole plain and honest soul who loved his chewing tobacco.
