Bob's family moved to Senath, Mo. when he was only five years old. He spent his young years of growing up in this small town where he had many friends and experiences. He always referred to Senath as his home. This prompted him to write two books about his years spent in Senath as "Reflections in Time".
His family had to move to California when he was in his junior year of high school, where he met and married his wife, Arlita Corley, who survives of the home.
Other survivors include one son; Paul Corley, of Doniphan, Mo.; one daughter, Eva Corley, of San Diego, Calif.; two brothers, Charles Corley, of Clinton, Mo., and Rick Corley, of Golden, Colo.; two grandchildren, Amy Harmon, of Wentzville, Ark., and Jolene Blakeman, of San Diego; too many friends to mention and his pet cat for 18 years, Rusty.
Preceding him in death were his parents Bernice and Earnest Corley and one brother, Bill Corley.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, April 13, at the Senath Cemetery.
A dessert reception will be held at the Senath Methodist Church Fellowship Hall following the memorial.
