He graduated from Lippert’s Business College with a degree in accounting.  He was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Floydada his entire life.  He was a great witness for Christ.  Corkey worked at Lighthouse Electric Coop as an accountant for 43 1/2 years before retiring in 1993.  He was a land and livestock farmer as well. Corkey was active in Lions Club, Kiwanis, Toastmasters, and Rotary Club.  He supported his children’s activities by serving in various capacities. A very proud moment for him was when he was selected as the Pioneer of the Year for Floyd County in 2017. Corkey was a fisher of men for Christ but also had a true love for fishing and golfing. He married the love of his life, Janiece Marie Hill, on August 5, 1949. They celebrated 72 years together.

He is survived by his wife, Janiece Guffee; children, Larry (Carla) Guffee and Phyllis (Ross) Hamilton; six grandchildren, Candice Connelly (Steven), Christopher Hamilton (Mandy), Jason Hamilton (Kim), Lucas Guffee (Leslie), Jeffery Hamilton (Christine), and Angela Stewart (Jason); seven greatgrandchildren, Canon, Abigail, Emily, Addison, Bonnie, Noelle and Tre; one great-great-granddaughter Karson; his sister, Sonja (Robert) Ragsdale, and several nephews and nieces.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the First Baptist Church music or food program.
