Obituary for Timothy Michael CORBETT

Corbett, Timothy Michael
“I will arise and go now and go to Innisfree”
Tim has arisen and his irrepressible spirit is winging its way back to Ireland, his birthplace. Tim had a long, productive life and a mercifully short illness. He died peacefully on Wednesday, February 06, 2008, in his 87th year. Tim, the cherished husband of Rita for 64 years. Adored father of Victoria and her spouse Fred Birket. Honorary Grandfather of Paul and Susan. Always fascinated by Sean, Nathan, Liam and Adam. Predeceased by his brothers, he is survived by his sisters, Patricia, Margaret, Jane and Theresa. Loved by many nieces and nephews.
Tim was a veteran of World War Two serving with the RAF between 1937 and 1947. He is the last surviving Boy Apprentice Photographer. A man of words, literature and poetry. He studied the stars, science, history, and politics. He developed beautiful gardens and was a creative cook. In his later years he adopted Tai Chi and played many games of Scrabble! Many, many thanks to the medical and nursing staff at P.R.H.C. and Palliative Care. Cremation has taken place. Friends may call at the COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL HOME, 83 Hunter Street West (at the Bridge), Peterborough from 2-4 on Saturday, February 9th.
