Keith Walter Corp Jr. was born in Salinas, Calif., November 22, 1940, to Keith Walter Corp and Margaret E. Corp.
Keith lived in the Rogue Valley since 1967. He graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, in Ag Engineering. He came up to help on the family ranch, purchased in 1947, and never left. He had been a farmer, rancher, and engineer all his life. His pride and his design is a gravity-fed irrigation system that which runs 10 wheelines with pressures of 80 psi.
He served on the TID Board, the Grange Co-op Board, and Jackson County Soil and Water Conservation District Board. He was part of SB 1010, WISE (a water project) FARRM (Farm and Ranch Management group). He was proud to give back to the community in which he lived, and was one of the valley's primo baler mechanics (in that he will be sorely missed). He had many, many friends who visited him in his last days. THANK YOU!
He is survived by his mother, Margaret E. Corp; wife, Marsha MacCormack; sister, Janet E. Corp; brother, Terrance (Sue); his sons, Joe W. Corp (Leslie), and their daughter Danica; Christopher Corp; and James MacCormack.
He will be greatly missed.
