Corbin Nelson Jerrel

Corbin Nelson Jerrel, age 13, passed away on Wednesday, March 30, 2016.

Corbin was born on August 17, 2002 at Holy Rosary Hospital in Miles City.  He attended Highland Park Elementary, Lincoln School and Washington Middle School.

Some of his hobbies included hunting, fishing and riding four wheelers. His ultimate passion was being at the family ranch.

From an early age Corbin was a very active boy. Any sport or activity he tried he excelled in. At age three he tried hockey — he constantly fell down but didn’t give up — he always got right back up and kept going. 

He was involved in many activities throughout his short life. Some of these included baseball, basketball, football, and his all-time favorite, wrestling.

Corbin was constantly on the go. He loved riding bikes and hanging out with friends, building pontoons, woodworking and going to the lake. He also enjoyed having airsoft wars with as many friends as he could round up. He spent many weekends with his “second” family, Ginger, Adam, Wyatt and McKade Carpani. 

During the 6th grade Corbin found his passion in life, wrestling. He excelled very quickly and went on to win 1st place at the 2015 Montana Open. This past month in March Corbin took 1st place in the Montana AAU tournament, which qualified him for the National AAU tournament. Corbin was always very proud of his wrestling accolades.

Corbin is survived by his parents, David and Sharla Jerrel and sisters McKinsey and Briar of Miles City, MT; grandparents, Raymond and Peggy Jerrel of Miles City, MT, Wally and Bernadine Nelson of Cody, Wyoming; aunts and uncles, Shawna (Randy) Rothaus and their children Michael, Austin and Jaryd of Edmonds, Washington; Greg (Kathie) Nelson of Clyde Park, MT and their children Josie and Josh of Billings, MT; Shari (Tom) of Belgrade, MT and their children Brandon (Kalen) of Sherman Oaks, CA and Blake of Laramie, WY; and Godparents, Ann and Shawn Neary of Gillette, WY.

Corbin was preceded in death by his aunt, Shelley Nelson Wettstaed.
