Casey and Family, was so sorry to hear of the passing of Corb. I will always remember the love he showed for our Special Olympians. When we started the Amanda Clearcreek Special Olympics he was one of the first people to volunteer. He continued year after year. He would show up on Friday when we were setting up and want to lend us a hand and then be there on Saturday for the event. I fondly remember sharing cold pizza with him on our Friday work days. Thank you Corb for the love you showed for our "Special Kids." Fondly Diane Bresler Amanda Clearcreek Special Olympics

Casey and Corb were our first friends when we moved to the "country" in Saxonburg PA. I had always seen Corb with a ball cap on and I will never forget the first time I saw him without it! I hardly recognized him as he didn't have much hair! This family meant much to our family, including their kids and ours. Many fond memories! Rest in peace Corb! Much sympathy to you Casey, Laura, Shelley and Paul.
