Jack Jorn Corr
November 26, 1935 – June 15, 2020
Jack Jorn Corr of Scottsbluff, Nebraska passed away peacefully at his home early Monday morning June 15, 2020 with family by his side. Jack was born on November 26, 1935 to Paul and Helen Corr in Scottsbluff. He graduated from Melbeta High School in 1954. He married Dorothy Joann Cochran on June 11, 1955 and celebrated their 65th anniversary on Thursday before his death.
He is survived by his wife Joann, 2 daughters Sandi (Ernie) Bybee of Sidney and Lori (Steve) Geist of Gothenburg; 2 sons Steve (Angela) Corr of Washington and Scott (Shelley) Corr of Scottbluff; 10 grandchildren Cori (Jon) Koehler, DeAnn (Allison) Barry, David (Sammi) Corr, Beau (Shelly) Bybee, Amber Corr (Steve Wells), Tyler (Mandi) Barry, Chris (Christina) Corr, Josh (Shelby) Corr, Paige Corr and Ty Corr; 11 great grandchildren Chaz and Taylyn Bauer, Blake Corr, Lane and Tessa Bybee, Mia and Sai Wells, BoDelle Koehler, Jack, Charlie and Henry Barry and 2 more little Corrs on the way; 2 brothers Paul (Jeanne) Corr and Harvey (Carol) Corr both of California; 3 sisters-in-law and 2 brother-in-laws, special family friend Roxi Corr and many nieces and nephews from both the Corr and Cochran families. He loved you all more than you will ever know.
Preceding him in death were his parents, parents-in-law, 2 brothers, 2 sisters and grandson Danny Barry. Jack enjoyed making wood toys for his grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Jack was a practical joker and loved to tease and he also loved to play cribbage. Everyone entering his home was usually given a hot cinnamon fire ball. Many thanks to wonderful neighbors and friends: He may not have always remembered your name but he never forgot your face. Special thanks to his home care help and hospice: you all made his end of life better.
Rest in peace until we meet again.

We surely will miss all the fun times with Uncle Jack. All the picnics and family get togethers were he would always tease the kids. The little pony cart rides were a special memory.
Our sympathy and prayers to all the family

Joann and family, so sorry to see you've lost Jack to this life. I had the privilege of working with him about 30 years ago and so appreciated his knowledge...and sense of humor. You are in my thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort.

I was and am blessed to call this incredible human "Grandpa".
Thank you for always being there for me, no matter what. You showed me what it is to love unconditionally and the importance of family (blood and choosen). Everyone was always welcome at your table.
I will remember your warm smile, big heart, and your mischief. I will miss listening to you share stories about the farm, growing up, and causing trouble with your brothers and sisters. I will miss sharing coffee in the morning on my visits home.
Now you are free. You get to breathe deeply and dance the night away.
Love you always.

I will remember Uncle Jack for the red wooden toy truck he made for me as a kid and even repaired and repainted it just a couple years ago. And how can I forget the Fire Ball candy! RIP Uncle Jack
