Corbet Stevens

  It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that the family of Corbet Erick Stevens announces the peaceful passing of their beloved son and brother. Corbet passed away at his home on March 15, 2018.

  Corbet was born on May 17, 1984, to Victoria and Erick Stevens in Bellingham. He grew up in Ferndale and graduated from Ferndale High School in 2002. Corbet was a natural athlete, playing football and wrestling. Corbet graduated from Whatcom Community College and attended Western Washington University.

  Every summer since Corbet was 14 years old, he would crew on the family’s fishing boat, the Vortex, in Bristol Bay, Alaska. He was a calm and intelligent fisherman. He once saved a man’s life who fell off a nearby tender because of his quick thinking and instant reaction.

  Corbet was an incredible and talented piano player, often composing his own music. Corbet also loved to travel. His most recent trip was to Italy where he visited Rome and saw the Pope. He climbed Mt. Vesuvius and ate Florentine steak. Corbet spent his 33rd birthday in Pisa. While in Venice, his favorite spot, he sipped Aperol spritz in St. Mark’s Square.

  Corbet will be deeply missed by his family, especially his brother Jarret, sister Lindy, and his parents, Erick and Vicki. Corbet has a close extended family that includes his 94-year-old Grammie and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

  If you knew Corbet, you knew one of the most kind, considerate, handsome, confident, witty and gentle people in the world. Corbet cared deeply for other’s feelings and their well-being, especially his family. This world lost a very special person, but Heaven gained the most beautiful of Angels.

  Corbet will be buried in a private family gathering in San Diego County.
