Corby is a neat guy who was always there at Cara's track meets where my daughter and she competed together for Saint Agnus. He and I didn't know each other in college but got the same degree from UT and when I met him I knew he looked familiar and I took an instant liking to him. He was funny, smart, and very interested in my daughter (Mason's) progress in track and we continue to follow his advice. His family and career and their shared success are a tribute to his greatness. I only wish I'd known him sooner.

I have not seen Corby in over 20 years, but he was one of my first "business contacts" ever. Finding out he was a Longhorn made it even better. We lost touch after the Horne Co. years, but I never forgot him. So sorry to see him in the paper this morning..Nothing but good things to remember about Corby.
Sunday, June 23, 2013
So sorry and sad to hear of Corby's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his parents, wife and children. I have known Corby since Jr. High and was his roommate in college.

He was a great friend, father, husband and son and will be greatly missed. God bless and may he rest in peace.
