Kevin Charles Corbett passed in peace at home on May 19, 2023, at the age of 51 after a courageous 4-year battle with Cancer. Born February 12, 1972, to Joseph and Lynne (Mitchell) Corbett, Kevin spent his young life in Texas, Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio and California. He attended Amijo High School in Fairfield, California and graduated in 1990. After Kevin met his wife Amy (Clinton) at Purdue University in 1993, they married in 1996 and lived in West Lafayette, IN until 2007 when they moved their family to North Carolina in the Winston-Salem area. Kevin was a dedicated father and husband. He worked for Ball Metal from 1999 to 2005 and then had a 18-year career at Ardagh Metal (formerly Rexam) where he was an active member of the United Steelworkers union. Kevin kept his social circle small and valued close relationships with coworkers and friends that stood the test of time. Kevin loved calling NC home, mostly because he didn't have to shovel snow. He was an avid gardener, loyal Purdue fan, reluctant carpenter and occasional fisherman. Kevin will especially be remembered for his sharp wit, strong work ethic, green thumb and ability to literally fix anything. Kevin is survived by his wife, Amy, and their children Nathan, Alex and Megan; his parents, Joe and Lynne; siblings, Mike (Olivia) and Michelle; mother-in-law, Cynthia and brother-in-law, Judson and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Kevin will also be greatly missed by the family's dog, Daisy, who was his faithful companion and nap buddy throughout his illness. The family extends unmeasurable gratitude to the teams at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and Trellis Supportive Care who provided amazing care. A memorial service honoring Kevin's life will be held Saturday July 8, 2023, at 3 pm at Hayworth-Miller Funeral Home, .
