We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Daleville Chapel
Zachariah Kevin Corbin went to be with Lord in the early morning hours of July 12, 2022 at his mother’s home in Muncie, Indiana.
Born 6lb 8oz on June 25, 1985, Zach was an old soul that entered this world as a beautiful baby boy to the parents of Sandina & Kevin Corbin at Middletown Regional Hospital in Middletown, Ohio. He was loved by everyone immediately!
Always a curious mind, Zach absorbed the world around him. He never much liked school but loved learning. Maybe because, as one of his best friends put it, he was “gifted… a real life Will Hunting.” He went to John XXIII as a kid, went to Middletown middle school, and then attended both Middletown High School in Ohio and Yorktown High School in Indiana, finally obtaining a GED from the Muncie Area Career Center in 2003. Not a college type guy, he chose rather to take the career path. As a result, Zach was a master of all areas regarding hazmat damage, trauma & crime scene restoration. He worked with Hays & Sons for over 8 years as the Senior Field Coordinator for the Cincinnati office. He was a Triple Master of Fire, Water, & Textile Restoration, with many other certifications to his credit.
But his passions were music, physics, linguistics, math, and his family (including the friends that were such like family.) “If he took an interest in you he was your biggest fan, your most outspoken cheerleader, your go-to guy. “
Intelligent beyond the norm, witty, sarcastic, serious, fun-loving, gentle – he embodied it all. Loving others with kindness and respect for each individual and their uniquenesses, Zach was a true friend and champion of everyone he knew and loved.
He is survived by his mother, Sandina Rivizzino Corbin Short and step father James A, Short Jr., father, Walter Kevin Corbin and step mother Sherry Corbin, sisters; Stasha Rae Corbin of Paducah, Ky and Julia Grace Short of Muncie, step brother Brandon Ikenberry of West Chester, Ohio, beloved nieces and nephews: Victoria Janae' Wheeler, DaeLeon Vincent Wheeler, Amarah Angel Bell Areian Demetrius Bell of Paducah, KY and a host of friends and family that loved him greatly.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Dr. Vincent and Jean Rivizzino and paternal grandparents, Walter and Bonnie Corbin and his step grandfathers David Duncan and James Short Sr. as well as his dog Maddie Mae.
A service will take place at Wilson Schramm Spaulding Funeral Home in Middletown, OH on Tuesday, July 19, 2022 at 7pm, with visitation preceding the service from 5pm - 7pm. A Celebration of Life will then take place in Muncie on Thursday, July 21st. The family would also like to thank Ballard & Sons Funeral Home in Daleville, IN for their compassionate assistance in the preparation of Zach for his services.
