Robert J. Corbett, 84, of Keyport, passed away peacefully on May 27, 2021. Robert was born February 13, 1937, in Jersey City, New Jersey, where he grew up and lived most of his life. He was the owner and operator of Corbett’s Moving and Storage in Jersey City, which he ran for many years. Robert and his loving wife Linda married on October 26, 1957, and eventually settled in Keyport in 1982. Robert was a fan of anything with an engine: motorcycles, cars, trucks, and even boats. Most importantly, Robert enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandkids and great-grandkids.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 63 years Linda Corbett, his children Linda Garbarini and her husband Nicky, Janet Corbett, and Judy LaVilla and her husband Mark, his grandchildren Rich and his wife Nicole, Nicky, Tara and her husband Jason, Mark, Robert, Joey, and Lucas, his great-grandchildren Bryce, Bradley, Jason, Brielle, and one baby girl on the way, and many extended family and friends.
