Not sure what to say?

We were so sad to hear of Don's passing. A lovely young man! My brother, Bill Stott, went to school together but he always had time to say 'hello' to all who knew him. A very special person who will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Mira Mills (Stott) Our condolences to all the family

Farewell to a man in a million from Greg and Joyce Street you will be missed.

Fifty five years ago as a young Policeman I worked with Don in New Plymouth. As a Policeman Don presented a very human face to the Public while sometimes not in the training manual !
When working with Don you never had to watch your back; you knew that he was there. R.I.P. Don.

Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time. Don and Doris were our neighbours at Heta Road, we enjoyed many happy, fun times with them. Cherish all those happy memories you shared.

I learnt to be a policeman the "Don Corbett way" when he was my shift boss. Always ready to help when the going was tough. He certainly knew how to use the off duty hours when we attended the after match functions in Bob Stevens shed. Go well Don and thanks for the journey.

Don was a great mate, and along with Doris we shared a lot of fun times and laughter over 55 years. We will miss him. Ray and Shona Barlow.
