Corbett Sr., Martin J. - Minooka  
Martin J. Corbett Sr., 93, of the Minooka section of Scranton, passed away on Saturday morning at his home. His wife, the former Dorothy Grogan, preceded him in death on March 12, 1995. Martin, known by his friends and family as "Mackin," was born on Oct. 27, 1922, in Minooka to James and Mary Kanavey Corbett. Martin was a graduate of Minooka High School and attended the Georgia Institute of Technology. He was a proud veteran of the Army, assigned to the Army Medical Corps, landing on Omaha Beach in Normandy on June 6, 1944, D-Day, and served in the European theater of operations during World War II under Gen. George S. Patton Jr., participating in battles in Northern France, the Ardennes, the Rhinelands and Central Europe, including the Battle of the Bulge and the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp at Dachau. He was awarded five Bronze Stars and was honorably discharged from military service as a technical sergeant on Dec. 5, 1945. He was employed by the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad and U.S. Hoffman Machinery Corp., later known as Chamberlain Manufacturing Corp. Martin held various union positions in Local Lodge 847 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and served as its president for five years. In 1969, Martin was elected business representative of District 128 of the IAM and later served as directing business representative. In 1969, Martin was named "Newsmaker of the Year" for labor by The Scranton Times. He served as vice president of the Pennsylvania State Council of Machinists, a trustee of the Scranton Central Labor Union, president of the Minooka Neighborhood Association and a board member of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania. He was a lifelong member of St. Joseph's Church, now known as Divine Mercy Parish. Martin represented the very best of "the Greatest Generation," one of a dwindling number of survivors of the Great Depression and World War II, proud Americans who quietly proved their dedication to God and country with sacrifices, large and small. Martin believed in hard work, and believed that those who work hard should be fairly compensated. In his leadership positions in local labor unions, Martin was a skilled and committed advocate for his fellow workers. He deeply believed that we all have an obligation to help our neighbors in good times and bad times. Upon his retirement, it was common to see Martin mowing his neighbors' lawns and removing snow from their sidewalks. Above all, Martin dedicated himself to his late wife, Dorothy, and their family. He played an active role in the lives of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and took great pride in their accomplishments. In fact, on the day before his passing, Martin traveled to suburban Philadelphia to celebrate the college graduation of his grandson, Corbett. Martin is survived by four daughters, Ann Corbett; Jamie Hayes and husband, Ray, all of Minooka; Ellie Hannum and husband, Richard "Buzz," Wilmington, Del.; and Judge Trish Corbett and husband, Michael Brier, Moosic; and a son, Marty Corbett and wife, Cathy, Taylor. He was the proud grandfather to Eileen Hayes; Kevin Hayes and wife, Mariclare; Colleen Catanese; Kelly Corbett; Sara Corbett Gassenmeyer and husband, Scott; Richard "Buzzy" Hannum and wife, Mary-Rose; Corbett Hannum and Mackin Brier. He was also great-grandfather to Kevin, Nora, Jack and Julia Hayes, Mya Dubernas, Brianna Cornell and Lilly and Poppy Hannum. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law, Gladys MacDonald and Mildred Cerep Sparacino; and his brother-in-law, Marty Judge; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Martin was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Mary; five sisters, Sister Mary Jamesina of the Sisters of Mercy; Juel Sweeney and husband, Gerard; Ann Corbett, Catherine Miller and husband, William; and Eileen Judge; four brothers, Eugene and wife, Mary; Patrick and wife, Alice; James "Shamus" and wife, Dorothy; and Joseph "Jake" and wife, Mary; four brothers-in-law, Leo, Peter, Frank and Patrick Grogan; and two sisters-in-law, Celestine Heston and Mary Ruane. The funeral will be Thursday with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in the St. Joseph's Church, 312 Davis St., Minooka, to be celebrated by the Rev. Francis Pauselli, pastor, followed by interment at St. Joseph's Cemetery, Minooka. Friends may call today from 6 to 8 p.m. and Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Neil W. Reagan Funeral Home Inc., 1900 Pittston Ave., Scranton. The family requests that those attending the funeral on Thursday proceed directly to the church.
