A legacy cookbook
Danny was a native of Mathews County, the son of Erva Lee Sutton Corbett and J.W. Corbett. Many of his relatives still live in Mathews, Gloucester and Middlesex. He attended Mathews High School but graduated from Staunton Military School with a number of academic and athletic honors. He received a degree in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1970, a year later received a Master of Science degree in nuclear engineering, and by 1972 he had another master’s in information and computer science.
Danny’s professional career began in Detroit, Mich., as a manager of Materials Systems. Then he returned to Atlanta to become a Management Consulting Partner and later was named National Director of the Telecommunications Consulting Practice.
In 1988 Danny was diagnosed with ALS, commonly called Lou Gehrig’s disease. "After learning of the diagnosis, he commented that this was appropriate because of his love for the game of baseball," said a story about his life which is part of the cookbook. "Baseball was a large part of his childhood. He played all through his years of school in the position of shortstop. He coached and even when busy at work, he would fly home to coach his children whenever they were playing a game.
