Obituary for Byron Corbett

Robert Byron Corbett was born in Burlington, Ontario where he was raised by his parents; Edward and Patricia (Munro) Corbett. He attended St. Gabriel’s Elementary school, Notre Dame Secondary School and Algonquin College in Pembroke, Ontario-taking the Outdoor Adventure Program.
He lived a wonderfully adventurous life, and lived it to the fullest. He was passionate about rock climbing, outback mountain skiing, kayaking, white water rafting, long wilderness and mountain hikes and camping along the way. He also loved playing and winning at chess in his down time.
Byron enjoyed chasing the seasons for work. He worked five summers at Wilderness Tours as a rafting guide and Bungee Master, and four winters at Big White Ski Resort near Kelowna as a ski patroller on the avalanche crew. For the last five years he worked for Clean Harbors in northern Alberta on the exploration team, excelling at each position he was promoted to. Byron was a life-long learner, taking courses continuously, in safety and skill development. He was also a Rope Access Technician level II (close to obtaining his level III) taking on contracts whenever he could. As a level I technician he washed windows on high rise buildings while listening to downloaded Physics textbooks to learn more about non-destructive testing. He was passionate about obtaining more knowledge and loved a good debate.
Byron will live on in the hearts of his parents, his brothers Patrick and Liam, his maternal grandmother Moya Munro, as well as multiple aunts, uncles, cousins and devoted friends. He will be remembered for his winning smile that lit up his face, his happy disposition, and mostly for the time he took helping people especially if experiencing grief over the loss of a loved one, something he understood well, having lost a close friend himself. Friends wanted to be around him, were drawn to him and trusted him to keep them safe on adventures. He also loved animals-while camping as a child, he would call wolves and they would come, chase moose onto our campsites, and he could hand-feed birds- a particular favorite thing to do. He would be deeply hurt by the unnecessary loss of life of poor wildlife, such as bears, that stumbled into residential areas.
Robert Byron Corbett died tragically June 21, 2020 near Squamish British Columbia at the age of 30. He was a very experienced kayaker who unfortunately experienced equipment problems while white water kayaking, which prevented him from safely exiting the river. He is predeceased by his maternal grandfather Byron Munro of Elgin N.B. and by his paternal grandparents Margaret (Crothers) Corbett and Robert Corbett of St. Catharines. He is also predeceased by his two Uncles, James Corbett of Hamilton and Jeff Armour of Burlington.
A Celebration of Byron’s Life will be held at the Royal Botanical Gardens in the Rose Garden Tent, Wednesday September 23rd from 3-5 PM 680 Plains Road West Burlington, Ontario. As an expression of sympathy the family has suggested donations to the Wild Life Rescue Association of BC. Please indicate as a donation in Byron Corbett’s memory.
Please RSVP to Trish Corbett at trish.ann.corbett@gmail.com with the number of attendees in your bubble for COVID seating restrictions before September 19th as number of attendees is limited.

Edward, Patrick and the Corbett family—

Reading about Byron he sounded a truly wonderful human who really made the most of every moment given to him. I am sorry for the loss and tragedy of his early passing and hope he is spreading his magic where he is now.

Wishing you the strength to get through this.

My best,

God took this beautIful man way to early. Byron touched so many people in such positive profound ways. He loved people and wanted to share his love of nature and life. He wanted to share the view of the world from his lens. We are all so deeply saddened by his tragic death. I know that he is with His uncle Jeff. Jeff will be so happy to have him but saddened too about how early he has arrived in heaven. Jeff will be thanking Byron for how much he helped me through my grief. Byron was never afraid to ask me how I was doing, I always knew he meant how was I doing without Jeff. I will love, and never forget Byron for the rest of my life. 💕💕💕
