Lance R. Corby, 31, of Newton Twp., Clarks Summit, died Saturday at his home.
Born July 2, 1977, in Scranton, son of Diane J. Cruser Corby of Newton Twp. and Alvin J. "Sonny" Corby, who died in May 2007, he was a 1996 graduate of Abington Heights High School and was a member of the Radio Club at Abington Heights. Lance received recognition as the top vocational-technical student of his graduating class. He played several instruments and enjoyed an eclectic variety of music, from big bands of the past to today's rock 'n' roll. He also loved trains and model railroading. Lance, with his love of family and infectious smile, will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew him.
Lance was a history buff. At a very young age you could ask him a question about a plane and Lance would tell you everything there was to know and then some, much like his biggest hobby; trains. He knew every make and model and had made many visits to train museums. He had all sorts of train memorabilia. He spent many hours with his model trains in his parents basement; he built his own towns, roads, and bridges. His love for antique cars kept him abroad for hours. Lance was always listening to big band music or Elton John. He loved all kinds of music from many different eras. And then there was his love for New York City in the winter. Every year he would visit. He'd buy cigars and pose for pictures in front of The Waldorf.
Also surviving are two sisters, Diane Teevan and husband, James, Olyphant; and Cindy Lou Ritter and husband, Tom, of Mount Cobb; three brothers, Alvin J. Corby Jr., Texas; Ace Kenneth Corby, San Antonio, Texas; and Jesse J. Corby, Simpson; several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
