Roger Corbin

May 4, 1938 — September 21, 2013

Roger William Corbin, son of Roy and Amy Corbin and biological mother Pearl Corbin, was born May 4, 1938 in Milford, Nebraska. He grew up and attended school in Nemaha, Nebraska, graduating from Nemaha High School in 1957. Roger was baptized by Rev. M. Wayne Picherel at the Methodist Church in Nemaha on March 28, 1948 and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Auburn by Rev. Eugene Schooler on June 2, 1963.

On November 30, 1963 Roger was united in marriage to Myrna Kuhlmann at Trinity Lutheran Church, by Rev. Eugene Schooler. They would be blessed with two children, Tina Marie and Christopher Alan. Roger and Myrna made their home in Auburn.

After high school, Roger worked on the Norman Kennedy and Elmer Steffens farms in Nemaha County. Next, in Omaha, he built lawnmowers at General Appliance Manufacturing and then at J.B. Thorndike as a used car lot attendant. In 1963 he started at Nutone-WoodCarv as a guard/janitor, later moving to other positions at the factory. After 38 years of service, Roger retired from the plant under its new name, Armstrong Flooring.

As a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Roger enjoyed being active in the Lutheran Laymen’s League. He worked latchhook in his spare time, and in his younger years liked to camp with family and work on his cars. He also served as a volunteer civilian observer for the U. S. Air Force during the Cold War.
