It is with heavy hearts and sadness we announce the sudden passing of Thomas ‘Tommy’ A. Corbett on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, after a long and courageous battle with heart disease.
Born in Sydney, Tommy was the son of Tom and Ronelda (MacPherson) Corbett.
Through the years Tommy was an inspiration to all who knew and loved him. His illness, since childhood, never interfered with his way of life. Everyday was a bonus for Tommy and he lived each day to the fullest.

Tommy will be greatly missed by his nieces and nephews who loved him dearly, Ambyr (TJ) and Kaitlyn (Tim) Eisan, Brittany and Breanna Lynk, John (Crystal) Eisan and Thomas and Troy Corbett; as well as his fiancé and soul mate, Norma Morrison.
