Kyle Corbin

Kyle Gerald Corbin, 25, Yakima, WA, died at 7:30 a.m., Thursday, January 19, 2017, from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Old Naches Highway and State Route 12.

Kyle was born October 19, 1991 in Yakima and was a lifelong area resident. He worked as a certified mechanic at Bob Hall Mazda.

 Kyle is survived by his mother, LaDonna Evans Corbin; his father, Gerald M. (Jerry) Corbin; his twin brother, Kurtis P. Corbin, all from Yakima. He is also survived by his maternal grandmother, Lillus Evans, of Yakima; paternal grandmother, Nancy Corbin; and paternal grandfather Phillip Corbin of Chehalis, WA. Kyle had numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and his many friends. Kyle is preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Franklin Evans of Yakima.

Kyle attended Naches High School and Yakima Valley Technical Skills Center completing the Auto Tech. program in 2010.

 From the time he was young, he demonstrated his natural talent and skill in all things mechanical. His parents quickly learned that he loved taking things apart, fixing them, and putting them back together again from guns to engines. He was an exceptional mechanic and often helped people by working on their automobiles expecting nothing in return. While working at Bob Hall Mazda he was often given the difficult jobs because of his skill and persistence in completing these challenging jobs.

Kyle was a participant in the Tieton Highlanders Vintage Motocross Club, Tread Youth Ministries, and the Highland Community Church Dirt Bike Club. He loved racing and he recently won the Pacific Northwest Vintage Motocross Club Series “Revolution 2” Top Amateur trophy. He also loved working on his grandfather Corbin’s 1971 Chevrolet ¾ ton truck that Kyle got when he was young. As a child, Kyle attended church with his parents at the Stone Church. Eventually Kyle began to attend Highland Community Church. Kyle served the Lord with a firm faith and commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ.

His mother would like people to remember Kyle by the simple phrase, “It’s ok to be different!”
