Issue Date: August 15, 2013
David L. Corbisier, 78 of Daggett passed away Thursday Aug. 8 at Aurora Bay Care Medical Center in Green Bay.
Born on Dec. 27, 1934 in Cornell, MI to the late Harry and Beulah (Cooper) Corbisier, he married Phyllis Grundstrom on Sept. 18, 1954 at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Daggett. He was an iron worker for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad before moving to Orange, Cal. where he repaired heavy equipment.
Following his retirement the couple bought a log home in Pinedale, WY where he enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time with friends he met over the 20 summers they spent there. He was proud of leading a crew that hung the flags for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, Cal. He was a caring, kind hearted man who always looked out for the betterment of others, and as a friend once said, Dave is what every young man should aspire to be. He took great pride in mentoring young men in what it takes to be successful in life and business, had a unique sense of humor and a strong sense of justice and fair play. He enjoyed hunting fishing and traveling, but most of all, it was time spent with family and grandchildren that he enjoyed most.
Survivors include his wife of 58 years, Phyllis of Daggett; two children, Lynda (Steve) Clary of Rapid City, SD and Dean (Deena) Corbisier of Corona, Cal.; four grandchildren; two brothers, Maurice (Shirley) Corbisier of Lancaster, Cal. and Dale (Mary) Corbisier of Tullahoma, Tenn.
Family and friends called at Anderson Diehm Funeral Home on Sunday Aug. 11 at 4 p.m. until time of prayer service at 7 p.m. Visitation continued at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Daggett on Monday at 11 a.m. with Pastor Craig Weber officiating. Burial followed in Stephenson Township Cemetery. In lieu of other forms of sympathy, a memorial fund has been established in his name.
