From his bouncing, curly hair, to his zest for life and all the little things that make the world go round, Corban appreciated them. A little mischievous, Corban was the epitome of what it meant to be the life of the party. He wouldn’t just do something, he would do that task and be outstanding at it. Not to mention, unconventional. He wouldn’t just go fishing, which he loved to do. He would go fishing, catching catfish with his bare hands. Corban was one of those who was good at everything. He was an amazing artist and painter. He had an appreciation for music, and attended many concerts and festivals with his mother. His mom said with a smile, “he wasn’t afraid of anything.” A jokester, brother and friend to all, Say his name and spark a moment of joy. Having the love of Jesus in his heart; it’s what made Corban a true believer of love and loyalty and a beautiful mark has been left on this life because of his presence. He was going into his sophomore year at Owensboro High School. To know him is to love him.
His natural and magnificent swagger and genuine charisma without even trying will be dearly missed and always remembered.

He is preceded in death by his great grandmother, Teresa Norris and great grandfather, Robert Norris; great Mamaw Margie Henry and great-grandpa, Hewitt Henry.

  37. Dear Caleb,
    When I woke up Tuesday morning and looked at my paper I was struck by the picture of a very cute young boy who died. Then I saw who he was, and thought how special he was and when I saw he was your bother I understood why he was so cute and special because he was your brother. I was so sorry to hear about your brother. What a tragedy. You have been so much in my thoughts not just because of your bother, but because you were one of my favorite students. When you care about one of your students you want to protect them from pain but that is impossible. Please accept my condolences. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Ms Taylor

    I love you and will always be here if you need me. 💜

  39. Brooklyn,
