Bremerton - Corbin Lee Berentsen, 64, passed away in his sleep on the first day of May 2020, in his home on Central Valley Road, Bremerton, Washington. He was born July 25th, 1955 in Virginia, Minnesota to Elmer and Violet Berentsen.
Corbin spent his first 10 years on the family farm in Bagley, Minnesota. In 1966 the family relocated to Silverdale Washington. Corbin graduated from Central Kitsap High School in Silverdale in 1973.

One of Corbin's favorite quotes regarding salvation was, "You either is, or you ain't.", by Jim Stelson. Corbin was saved, he was baptised by bodily immersion and greatly enjoyed being a loving and faithful member of the Bremerton Church of Christ congregation.
Corbin enjoyed retirement to the fullest. He spent many loving days with his longtime girlfriend Carmen Evans, traveling extensively and enjoyed their golfing, clamming, crabbing and long motorcycle rides together. His family was always a priority, he was a family man first and foremost and loved Berentsen gatherings. Corbin was an avid salmon fisherman, loved derbies, and spent many hours on the Sound with his father Elmer. Corbin Lee Berentsen made the best smoked salmon.
