He graduated from Oakmont High School before attending Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho for one year. He then served in the Pusan Korea Mission for two years. He became sick towards the end of his mission with meningitis or encephalitis according to his Mission President (who was also a doctor). This had an impact on his health the rest of his life. Corbin loved his mission. He was known to be hard working and fluent in Korean. Corbin enjoyed many sports including basketball. He won awards at camps and competitions during school and made the Sierra College Team in California upon returning from his church mission.
Corbin enjoyed wakeboarding . He was the first in his family to do a 360 and flip. He also excelled at snowboarding and worked at Squaw Valley for a short time. He also enjoyed Northstar Resort.
During his marriage, Corbin had many short-term jobs. He enjoyed working for the company that installed the tile floors in Sacramento Temple. He was allowed to keep a few pieces of tile as momentos. He eventually went to trucking school and achieved a 100% score in obtaining his license. He drove a cement truck in Sacramento putting in 60 hour weeks. He also had a trucking job in Virginia.
Corbin loved people. He was gregarious and fun his entire life. He especially loved family gatherings: big or small, close relatives or distant. He really enjoyed entertaining his many nieces and nephews. He also loved his cousins, aunts and uncles.
