Orvin Louis Korb was born January 27, 1933 in the Town of Bear Creek, to the late Louis and Clara (Westphal) Korb. After graduation from Clintonville High School in 1950, Orvin chose to serve his country by enlisting in the U.S. Army and later the Army Reserve. He was united in marriage to Joyce Schoenheide on October 5, 1957 at St. Martin Lutheran Church, Clintonville. Orvin worked for Korb Oil Co., and later worked and managed the O. Korb Service Station, Clintonville for many years. He also worked for Noritage Furniture, Embarrass; Clintonville Coop., and other local farm work. He was a life-long member of St. Martin, and served his church on the Board of Stewardship, as an elder, and as an usher for many years. Orvin’s love of the outdoors kept him busy fishing, hunting, making firewood, and gardening; as well as making the best home made maple syrup. He also loved to watch football and other sports.
