Donald Norman Corbridge, suddenly passed away on Friday, Jan. 1, 2016 in Hagerman, ID. Donald was born Dec. 27, 1958 to Loal and Vanadias “Vee” Corbridge in American Falls, ID.
Growing up Donald attended elementary school in Grandview and Springfield and went to high school in Aberdeen where he was employed by Simplot Food Group. He then quit his job, moved to Pocatello, started college, and was later hired on at Lamb Weston in the lab.
