Obituary of Kenneth Corbett
CORBETT – Kenneth Ross, age 73, of Riverside Corner. It is with sadness we announce the passing of Ken Corbett on July 10, 2018 in Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro, NS surrounded by his loving wife Marlene Corbett and family Sandra Chow (Walter), Brenda Boutilier (Brett), Michael Corbett, and April Corbett (Bob); grandchildren Gary, Justin, Jaime, Jerry, Lillian and a new great-grandson born on July 7th, Layton, whom Ken was so excited to meet in his last hours; brothers; Bill Corbett (Linda), Colin, Ross (predeceased by wife Elaine), and Jim (Brenda); and sister, Bonnie Dingman (Bill). He was predeceased by his parents Lillian and Ross Corbett. Ken was a proud Navy Veteran and after his service spent the later part of his career as a truck driver for Praxair. He loved to talk and tell stories and you could always be assured there was no dead air when Ken was around. He was creative and often spent time in his workshop building various toys and furniture. During his last few weeks he even created a nightlight for his walker that the doctors and nurses said they are going to patent. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the wonderful doctors, VON and nurses who visited Ken at home and the Palliative Care Team at Colchester East Hants Health Centre. In keeping with Ken’s wishes there will be no funeral service or flowers. Cremation has taken place with no visitation by request of the family. The family has requested that donations can be made in Ken’s name to the Palliative Care Unit at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, 600 Abenaki Rd, Truro, NS B2N 5A1. Arrangements have been entrusted to the compassionate care of J. Wilson Allen Funeral Home, Hwy 354, Kennetcook, ph-1-902-362-2440 or please visit our website at www.allenfh.ca to sign the guest book or send private condolences.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Kenneth
