Corcoran, Anthony (Tony) CORCORAN - Anthony James Corcoran (Tony), 49, beloved father, husband, brother, son, uncle, and friend sadly passed Friday, July 24, 2020 leaving earth in a worse place but at the same time making heaven that much better. Born in Flint, Michigan, he married the love of his life (Rebecca) on Mackinaw Island and had 21 loving years together. Travels for work took Tony and Rebecca to numerous spots but Grand Rapids was always home. They returned to be near family as they started their own. In 2003 they were blessed with twin boys (Reade and Mason). In the years that followed Rebecca and the boys were Tony's singular focus. Tony was a devoted family man that loved nothing more than the smile of his wife and boys. Family always congregated around Tony. Time was spent by the pool listening to music, playing games in the yard, snowball fights and ultra competitive kickball games. These were always followed by bountiful meals, card games and watching his favorite sports in the evening. Tony will always be remembered for his smile, jokes, games and wisdom. Tony was a graduate of Northwood College with a degree in Economics. He spent the last 26 years helping families, individuals and businesses build wealth, protect wealth and develop legacies. An avid reader of the Wall Street Journal, there wasn't a topic of the day that he didn't enjoy discussing. Tony would always share his vision for the betterment of all those around him. He is survived by his wife, Rebecca (Karas) Corcoran, sons Mason and Reade; parents James and Barbara Corcoran, sister Tanya (Michael) Lee, nieces Avery and Delaney. Father and mother in law David and Anne Karas, sisters in law Sarah (William) Kuebbeler and their sons Drew and Tyler, and Elizabeth (Christopher) Masters as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.. A private family service will be held at a later date. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, you honor Tony by spending time with your family making memories. Ofield Funeral Home
