WATSONVILLE — Ken Corbishley, the former Santa Cruz County Agricultural Commissioner who among other things led the county as it struggled to control the light brown apple moth, died May 16 at his home in Seaside after a lifelong struggle with respiratory issues. He was 50.
The Register-Pajaronian learned of Corbishley’s death from a small obituary on the second page of the 2011 Santa Cruz County Crop Report.
Born in Chicago, Ill. in 1950, Corbishley’s family moved to Sunnyvale when he was 11, hoping to provide him the best opportunities for good health. Leaving the Chicago winters behind, Corbishley never returned, preferring the comfortable California climate. For the complete article see the 08-02-2012 issue.
