Galen Arthur Corbitt 1950-2012

Galen A. Corbitt 61, went to be with his Lord and Savior Saturday, May 12, 2012, in Waco.

Also survived by his sister Peggy Green and her husband Joe, their children Carey and Becky and her husband Steve and children, brother Tom, sister Sherry Wright and her husband Jerry, and their children, Ammie and Robert, Ammie’s husband Don and their children McKenzie, Maisee, and Mia.

    Galen, I hope you know you were always on the right track by all of the people who dearly miss you. Relax and safe travels my friend! We love you!

  2. Amanda, Mike and Hayden Arrington

    We will miss you more than can be said and while we mourn your loss, we will do our best to instead celebrate your life and have you live on through our actions. We are blessed to have had you as long as we did and although it doesn’t seem long enough you have taught us the invaluable lesson of how to truly live life and for that we will always be grateful. We love you G.

  3. I don’t know what to say, there are so many wonderful things about who you were….who you are I don’t think I could fit them all on here. I have nothing but fond memories throughout my entire life to remember spending with you. You have taught me so many things about life without even realizing you did. I will miss you dearly until we meet again, God has a great new angel in his hands to whom I know will continue to look over his family. I love you. Edie, Lisa, and Eric, you are in my heart and prayers. Love Ammie

  4. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the Lord give you all comfort and peace.


  5. What an honor and privilege to have known such a gentle and kind man as G man. I will always remember him as being such a strong fighter and for being such an inspiration to me and to all that have or has had cancer. He is a true Angel and one day we will all meet again. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you all.

    Our energizer bunny has left this earth but not our hearts.

  13. The last time I saw Galen I was about 15 and he was "on the road". We both stayed in a tent in the back yard at my Dads house("Uncle Earl")in Colorado. I still remember his easy smile.
    I’m glad to see the same smile in almost every picture here. I’m also glad to see the wonderful family life he had in later years. Goodbye old friend….

  14. Galen, what a great man you were. I will always remember the times spent with you and your words of wisdom. You are a true hero to us all. You are my hero. Fly high my friend for you are a true angel in heaven.
