Steve Craig Corbin (1945-2020)

Steven Craig Corbin passed away unexpectedly in Sacramento on May 29, 2020 with his devoted wife of 14.5 years Zenaida Salas by his side.

Born on December 20, 1945 in Ames Iowa, Steve Graduated from Nevada High Class of 1964 in Nevada Iowa. To his friends and family in Iowa he was known as Craig.

Steve was a Veteran of the United States Navy having served on the U.S.S. Orleck DD-886. He did four tours in Vietnam. He was exceedingly proud of his military service and did everything he could to support his brothers in arms. He was a lifetime member of the Colusa VFW post 244. He also belonged to the VFW Post 10789 & American Legion Post 202 in Brentwood and Maxwell Post 218.

In civilian life, he was a Transmission Trouble Man for PG&E and was very proud of that he was part of the original members of the transmission department.

He was also an original member of the Helicopter Hot wash program as the Boom Operator and went on to train the people that came behind him. He was the last of the original men. He was part of many original groups in the Transmission line department he retired from PG&E as an Electric Transmission Control Center Supervisor. He was later called back to teach for PG&E for the skills he learned in his long career. Steve Retired in December 2009 with 37 years of service.

Steve loved adventure and was a thrill seeker that led him to a love of motorcycles and riding. He rode for the VFW in Brentwood until he moved to Williams. He and wife Zenaida rode to Street Vibrations in Reno & Hollister Rally, he also rode from Williams to Long Beach to join other Veterans to ride to Washington DC for Rolling Thunder in 2006. He rode the entire way and back. Zenaida surprised him in DC so he did not have to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial without someone with him that loved him. They also rode to Sturgis where they rode to and from without trailering their bike once.

Steve and Zenaida had a bucket list, most of which they accomplished in their years together.

Steve’s favorite place was Jamaica they went back on average of every other year. He wanted to move to France. They also visited Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Mexico, Hawaii and many places around the US.

One of Steve’s other avid loves was dancing. Zenaida let him dance with anyone he wanted because she claims she had no rhythm, but slow dances were reserved for her. Steve was also an active member of the Citizens for a better Williams and supported the local Fire Departments. He truly loved his community and it showed.

Steven’s sense of adventure and love of life are missed by his wife of 14.5-years, Zenaida who truly did her best to show him the world and treat him like the king she felt he was. She would take him on surprise trips that would make him crazy trying to guess where the destination would be. He hated group tours, so they always explored on their own and went through life on their own terms. Zenaida says Steven was the best decision she ever made.

Steven also leaves his sisters, Paula (Paul) Strum of Nevada, IA and Claudia (Larry) McKim of Nevada, IA; a brother, Marty (Kathy) Corbin of IL, His stepmother, Doreen Corbin and his children, Stephanie, Jeremy, Tanetha, Rob, Rikki and Randee, 21 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
