The company issued a statement on Corbet’s passing:

“Today Enco Plumbing and its men and women lost an employee, much more than an employee, he was a good family man, a good coworker and like a son to me. He was an upbeat young man that was very much into his work, very professional and has been practicing plumbing and was licensed by the state of Texas as a Journeyman plumber.  His skill set in plumbing was very high and he was very knowledgeable.  He was a very good employee and leader.  He spoke a lot of his children and his wife.  He always looked forward to completing his tasks and getting home to see them.  We have lost so much today I would not know where to start.  Not only is this the saddest day of Enco plumbing, but it’s the saddest day of my life.  The world has lost a very good human being.  May all the prayers help with this loss.”
