Jan. 24, 1960 — Aug. 14, 2019
MCDONOUGH, Ga. — Dale R. Corbin, 59, son of deceased parents Shirley (Sanders) McLaughlin, Jack Corbin and Jim McLaughlin (stepfather), passed away peacefully on Aug. 14, 2019 after a brief illness at Sacred Journey Hospice in McDonough, Georgia.
Dale was born on Jan. 24, 1960 and was raised in Fort Ann and Hudson Falls. Dale served in the Army National Guard for two years. He then worked for Buckley Tire in Glens Falls for many years as a mechanic. He was good at “pulling wrenches and meeting people,” as he said many times. He later moved to Georgia, where he met the love of his life, Bobbi Jay Harcourt. They were married on Nov. 30, 2005 and enjoyed many years of camping, fishing, watching movies and spending time together. Sadly, Bobbi passed away three months prior to Dale’s death, leaving him brokenhearted. Dale’s strong work ethics continued throughout his entire life. He was employed with Martin Tire for over 20 years. He spoke fondly of his work-family and their support throughout his time with them.
