Along with his parents, he was also preceded in death by a brother, Larry Gene Corbin. Donald was a 1956 graduate of Chief Logan High School, and a 1960 graduate of Millersville University, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Education. He taught Industrial Arts for 36 years at Kishacoquillas High School until his retirement in 1993. He also coached football at Kish High School for a number of years and even served as the head coach for a few of those.
Following his retirement, he became very involved at the LUMINA Center, where he served on the board of directors, was the maintenance man, assisted with the auctions, ham sandwich sales, spaghetti dinners and the tutoring programs, just to name a few.

He built homes locally in the summertime under the company name BYC with his long-time friends, Gene Brown and Tom Yeager. He was a master carpenter and woodworker, and spent countless hours in his woodshop. In his spare time, he raised beef cows on his farm, which he loved. He would often remark that he lived in the best place in the world.
