  1. Amanda & Cindy & Family, Very sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad/Husband. Peace, prayers & Love to you dear friends. Theresa (CSU-Pueblo Biology)

  2. Corby led the arthritis class at the YWCA. His compassion, humor and love of life was so freely shared with those of us who enjoyed his class. He loved talking about his girls and Cindy and shared many funny stories about them. No one left without a smile and a feeling of being loved. This world may have lost a big hearted man, but Heaven has gained a new Angel. May God take your grief and leave you with only loving happy memories.
    Barbara Harris

  3. May Corby’s loving family and friends find comfort from Revelation 21:3, 4; With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: ‘Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.’�

  4. Prayers on the young loss of Corby from a fellow Kellogg classmate of 1978. May the happier times and memories help you through these difficult days ahead.

  5. To the Huggett family. During this difficult time family, friends and even strangers want to express how much they care for your family by a note or a warm hug. Proverbs 17:17 says “A true companion is loving all the time, and is a brother that is born for when there is distress.”

  6. I am so sorry to hear the loss of such a kind and loveable Man. I met Corby at my Daughter and Son in Law’s home for a Thanksgiving dinner when he was working in St. Paul, MN. I had a great visit and time
    getting to know him. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

    My sincere Condolences to his family and
    my Son in Law David Huggett/ and Cathy who
    were so close to him.

  7. To Corbys family I am so sorry for your loss. What a great guy and soldier he was. We were buddy’s in a BNCOC class at Fort Carson and he always had a kind word, smile and would go the extra yard to help anyone. I know he loved his family as that is what I remember was so important to him. Bless you Corby you were a good person and soldier.

  8. To Cindy, Amanda and the rest of the Huggett family,
    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Huggett. I know this is such a difficult time, but I hope you will find comfort in your many fond memories. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Fondly,
