I am just seeing this news on the Corbin Supply page. SO sad to hear! My memories of Don are very clear. Always smiling and always interested in how family are doing! Years and years of crossing paths from early church days at San’s Souci to landscape and grounds maintenance relationship with Taylor Landscape, …then ALL the grounds materials purchased! (Grass envy of the neighborhood)…Don will be missed and lovingly remembered!

To all of the Corbin family and the team at Corbin Turf, my deepest sympathy and condolences to y'all. Don surely was a tremendous blessing to me personally and to our industry and this state. A gentle, kind, friendly, compassionate soul whose strength came from his relationship and walk with Jesus Christ. The CGCSA Fellowship/Prayer Breakfast is just one of the many positive parts of his legacy. I am grateful for having known him. God's peace and comfort all with the confidence that we will be together again! To God be the glory!
