Adrian “Sam” Clinton Corbett, 71, passed away Sunday, September 19, 2021 in his home in Fillmore, Utah. Sam was born May 17, 1950 in Bowie, Colorado to Adrian and Rachel Corbett. He met and married Glenna Ruth Kendall, the love of his life (for 51 years) in 1970 in Delta, Colorado. They have one daughter Tonya Lynn (Mike) Lowder of Tooele, Utah.
Sam loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, or just a good ole Jeep ride with his sweetheart. He also shared his love of rock hounding with his granddaughter, and name-sake, Samantha (Miss-Mantha as he always called her). He was a constant jokester, always trying to make people laugh. If you ever had the privilege of hearing one of his stories, I can guarantee that you walked away with a smile. He was a tinkerer, whether it was mechanical, or building something. Sam worked as a rancher, but spent the majority of his life working in the coal mines.
He absolutely adored his granddaughters, Samantha (Josh) Proctor of Hurricane, Utah and Shaley Tracy of Burley, Idaho; also two grandsons: Justin Lowder of Lakepoint, Utah and Jason Lowder of Riverton, Wyoming. He loved being a grandpa, but his pure joy was with his great grands: Brooklyn, Liam and Makenzie.
Sam is survived by his wife: Glenna; daughter: Tonya; grandchildren: Samantha, Shaley, Justin and Jason; great grands: Brooklyn, Liam and Makenzie; three sisters: Lucille Prettyman; Juanita (Bill) Edwards; Dora (Bobby) Dunton; 15 nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by both parents Adrian and Rachel Corbett; sisters: LaVonne Flashe and Eileen Griffoth.
Sam was a truly amazing soul and he will be greatly missed by many.
