NEWTON GROVE -- Mr. Victor Corbett, 66 died peacefully Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010, at Wayne Memorial Hospital, with his family by his side.

Victor was a lifelong farmer, and worked at Cherry Hospital for 30 years, where he retired.

He loved going to the coast or to the pond across from his house to fish, and throwing a fish fry or barbecue for family and friends.
