Kenneth F. Corbin, 90, of Englewood, Fla., died Wednesday, May 7, 2014, at his residence.
He was born Jan. 4, 1924, in Detroit, Mich.
Kenneth has lived in Englewood since moving from Detroit in 1969. He taught school in the Detroit Schools for 25 years, and in and around Sarasota County, Fla., for many years. The phrase, “You can do it Duffy Moon,” may ring a bell with some young people that attended the surrounding schools.
Kenneth was an artist, an avid golfer and a gardener. He loved his paradise.
He is survived by his daughter, Carol; grandsons, David (Stella) Corbin and Gary Corbin; granddaughters, Kris (Ken), Amber (John), Kelly (Charlie) and Carrie (Lyle); 13 great-grandchildren; eight great-great-grandchildren; one great-great-great-grandchild; one brother-in-law; one sister-in-law; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Kenneth was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 61 years, Wilma; his son, Gary; and his grandson, James.
A graveside memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 14, 2014, at Gulf Pines Memorial Park. You may express your condolences to the family at www.lemonbayfh.com.
