I am deeply saddened by the loss that you and your family have encountered. Larry was a close childhood friend of my brother Max and I was a childhood friend of his brother Jim while growing up in Point Edward. Please accept my sincere condolences.

My deepest condolences on the loss of dear Larry, father, brother, friend. I have very fond childhood memories of Last, Aunt Ida and family at their home in the Point. Our fathers, Larry and mine, who are brothers died very young and our families drifted apart. He's my cousin and very fondly remembered and loved. My God give you all peace at this difficult time. God's blessings.

Dear Family of Larry, I am very saddened to read that Larry has passed on. He is free from pain and is in a better place I know but his presence will certainly be missed by all of you. His treasured dog Maggie will miss him so much. I worked at Muellers in 1965 to 1968 as well as Buck, my husband, who has passed away as well. Larry was always there with a smile to greet us. Many happy memories of those days. My Sincerest Sympathy to all of you, Jessie Wright

It's with sadness that we learned of Larry Corbett's passing. We extend our condolences to Michelle, Elise, Eric and other members of his family. Over the years, Larry gave all of us many fond memories. We will never forget the doon buggy he made from an old Volkswagen Beetle and how much fun it was on the dunes of Grand Bend. Outside of Don Cherry, no one from our circle of friends knew more about defensive hockey and the Boston Bruins. He was a champion for First Nations and often voiced his outrage about the numerous injustices they experienced. And those close to him knew well his support for environmentalism via supporting clean energy. Larry loved his children, grandchildren and extended family, which was apparent via his many posting on Facebook. We will miss him.
