Don impacted our lives in such a major way. He hired my husband, Mike Murdock, back in 1985 in the Relay Department at Gulf States. Don changed our lives forever! He has been such a kind, amazing friend to Mike throughout the years. It has been such an honor knowing Don Corgey. He will be greatly missed.

Susan, there are no words to say how deeply sorry we are for your loss. The few times we have been around Don it was easy to see how much he loved you . I remember him as being kind, patient, with a hint of a smile always on his face. Looking at the video I realize how happy he made you and for that I am so grateful . He must’ve loved you as you have always deserved to be loved. Please know that we are so sorry for your loss. Larry & Janis Conkle
