Not sure what to say?

I just read that Bobby had passed away. So, so sorry to Sharon and family, my deepest sympathy. He was a nice kid. I remember his siblings and neighborhood kids hanging out on So.Kimball St in Bradford. Bobby's sister Nancy and I were long time, forever friends. My deepest sympathies to Janet,Cindi, Natalie, Steve,and Fred. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this sad time. Take care.

My deepest sympathy to all of Bob's family and to all of his hearers. My time at Conway Freight working with Bob was too short. I moved away, but we kept in touch because Bob was a trustworthy friend and I've made it a point in my life to keep up with those who are worthy of imitation. I thank God for knowing Bob Corthell. May he rest peacefully or at least enjoy camping out in his corner of Glory!

With deepest sympathy Sharon and family

To the entire Corthell Family: My sincere sympathy to you upon hearing of the passing of your dad Bob. I remember seeing you all together in church, as we all grew up in those same wooden pews at St. Joe's. Having just lost my own Dad earlier this year, I understand the pain and grief you are feeling. I will keep you all lifted in prayer over the coming weeks/months, and ask that our Heavenly Father watch over you. With love and prayers, Teresa (Jegorow) Glynn

Nat and family I am so sorry for your lost ,my prayers are with you , from my family to yours with love

I'm so sad to hear of Mr. Corthell's passing. I will always remember him, he was a really cool guy. Thinking of the family at this time of sorrow. Big hugs to all of you.

Papa Corthell was THE BEST MAN I have ever known. He taught me so many life lessons. He made an awkward scared kid feel safe and and cared for, I will never forget anything. Until we meet again Papa. Sharon, my heart aches for you, Erin, Robin, Sarah, and Amanda.

So sorry for your loss. Met Bob through square dancing he was a nice freindly gentleman. You will be missed. Rest in peace.

Our hearts go out to you in your loss. We remember dancing with him some years back. From Hayloft Steppers and friends, Al & Deanna Randall
