R.I.P. Corwyn (Cory) William Zimbleman (Dead at 53 from PEST)
Tucson.com ^ | 6/20/05

Posted on 06/20/2005 5:38:46 PM PDT by Libloather

Corwyn (Cory) William Zimbleman
Tucson, AZ (formerly of Champaign, IL)

Age 53. Born April 18, 1952 to the late Willard and Gilda (Ebert) Zimbleman, died June 10, 2005. Throughout his life Cory was an extraordinary artist. His artistic talent and imagination would bring awe to all who viewed his work. His works grace an LP cover and numerous books; using Computer Aided Design (CAD) he designed home and business exteriors, interiors, and furniture for several architectural firms. His talent went beyond the fine arts as he added sculpturing, woodworking, metals, and other mediums to his repertoire. Having never gained the recognition he deserved in his own lifetime his family hopes to publish a book of his works. Another of his passions was herpetology. As a child he was always bringing home reptiles. His friends nicknamed him "Snake." He even built a turtle pond in his backyard. An avid atheist, he studied the bible and religion with more fervor than most Christians. He had strong political opinions and followed Amy Goodman's radio broadcast "Democracy Now." Alas the stolen election of 2000 and living with right-winged Americans finally brought him to his early demise. Stress from living in this unjust country brought about several heart attacks rendering him disabled. Cory, a great man, so very talented, compassionate and intelligent, dedicated to the arts and humanities and the environment, will be greatly missed by his wife, family, and friends. He is survived by his wife, Patricia Montiel; his step-daughter, Esperanza Hernandez both of Tucson; his brother, Mike (Dana) of St. Louis, MO; his sisters, Susan St. Claire of San Jose, CA and Laura Zimbleman of Ypsilanti, MI, and his turtles Heidie, Skinhead and Studley and many other pets. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, June 21, 2005 from 6:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m., please call 883-2862 for information. Cremation has taken place.

Thanks for the link. I'm going to forward this to the "Current Wisdom" department at The American Spectator. This should get me a cool t-shirt.

I heard this on Limbaughs show today and I thought it was a joke. I din't think a US paper would actually run something like this.

I'd say "good, then he shouldn't be surprised at where he's going to end up", except for one thing. Any man who's spent fifty-three years and change saddled with the name "Corwyn" has suffered enough.

The family could have saved a lot of money on this obituary, if they had just printed the shorter form:

Born April 18, 1952 to the late Willard and Gilda (Ebert) Zimbleman, died June 10, 2005. It's Bush's fault!

Oh man this is sad. Let's make a new word. Sure living around those who are not just like you can be irritating but it can't stress you to death. I suppose in his families mind they are all now going to start dropping like flies.

I think the stress of being a failed artist may have been what caused the disability.

Angel at the gate; "Hi Corwyn. It says here that you were an "avid atheist," and you "studied the bible and religion with more fervor than most Christians." "Is that correct?"

Corwyn: "Yes, it is."

Angel: "So, tell me, what did you learn?"

I wonder what kept him from moving to some socialist utopia like Sweden? Or least Canada or Cuba, could have gotten that free healthcare dontchaknow.

"Stress from living in this unjust country brought about several heart attacks rendering him disabled."

After hearing yet another obligatory rant against America, I asked my left-bent antiAmerican friend just what country would he prefer to live in. The answer: "INDIA! Because Gandhi..." In a bemused tone I interrupted with "You are out of your blooming mind. Why aren't you there now?"
the answer: "Gandhi is dead."

At least he died with his Birkenstocks on.

Obit said he had already been cremated. What it didn't say was that everyone downwind for a half mile of that crematorium got a hellacious case of the munchies.

And the book will be printed on Kleenex for the convenience of the bleeding heart liberals who will purchase Cory's masterpieces.

"I can't take reality any more."

What reality?  He was an liberal, artist, humanitarian and environmentalist who blamed social unfairness on his heart attack induced disability and built a pond in his backyard for turtles.

This guy makes Michael Jackson look as grounded as William F. Buckley.

Studies have shown that artistic types do have a greater vulnerability to stress. And as far as being a "failed artist", well, he set himself up for that, thanks to outcome-based thinking, who knows?

It's kinda weird that only his dead parents and a sister share the same last name as him. Not his wife, not his kid. Even his brother doesn't.

Admittedly, his turtles might.
