Obituary for Harold Allen Corbin

Harold Allen Corbin

Age 86, of Manhattan, IL, was called from this earth to that house not made with hands, on December 17, 2018 at the Joliet Area Community Hospice Home. The eldest son of the late Ray and Arlene (nee Martin) Corbin. Harold was born in Central Missouri September 19, 1932 and moved to Joliet to work for Caterpillar following his service to this country during the Korean War. He had a passion for the Ag business and a deep-rooted belief that providing for his family was his most important duty. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to couple his passion with his sense of duty when he left Caterpillar to provide Agricultural services to farmers in the region. His passion for the Ag industry allowed his business to grow his other passion for the trucking industry. He was the founder of Corbin Trucking and continued to drive his own truck into his mid-70’s, completing his days of labor working for New Ag Center in Monee. Harold was a hardworking man that lived life very simply. He loved talking with his sons about their work, as they all work in some aspect of the Ag or Trucking industry. He found great pleasure in being surrounded by his family which is where he was when he left this earth. He was a fifty-five year member of the Matteson Masonic Lodge #175 in Joliet, an organization he believed brought out the best aspects of a man. He was also a member of the St. Paul United Church of Christ in Manhattan. Harold leaves behind his loving wife of sixty years, Marie (nee Draves) Corbin; five beloved sons, Rob (Leann), Jim, Mike, Jeff (Debbie), and Greg (Dawn); as well as ten grandchildren; and eleven great grandchildren. Preceding him in death were his parents; one sister, Mary; and two brothers, Floyd and Gene Corbin. Visitation will be at the Forsythe Gould Funeral Home: 507 S. State St., Manhattan, IL 60442, Thursday, December 20 from 3-8 p.m. Masonic services will held Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home. Funeral services will be Friday, December 21, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. with his final journey to the Manhattan Center Cemetery with full military honors conducted by Manhattan Post #935. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in his name may be directed to the Joliet Area Community Hospice or American Lung Association.
