Alfred "Bim" John Corp

Alfred “Bim” Corp, 67, of Charlevoix, passed away on February 10, 2022 at his home.

   He was born on February 26, 1954, in Petoskey the son of Leon and Elizabeth (Nowland) Corp.

   Al was a lifelong resident of the Charlevoix area where he graduated from high school in 1973.   He was employed at Harbor Industries in Charlevoix for 32 years prior to retiring in 2020.   Most recently he became a master soap maker helping his wife Mary with her business.

   Al loved being outdoors - he enjoyed hiking the Jordan valley, fishing with his children and grandchildren, watching the sunset on Lake Michigan with Mary and spending every nice day puttering around the yard eating weeds.  He also enjoyed photography, woodworking, working on cars and was known as the “problem solver” no matter what it was.   Al loved to laugh and could always make others laugh too.  When things were tough, he had a gift of lifting others spirits.  Most of all, and the number one priority in his life were his family who he always put first.

   On October 16, 1976, in Charlevoix, he married Mary J. Browe who survives.   Also surviving are 6 children, Nicki (Jim) Bonney, Jessie Corp, Angela Corp, Kim Corp, Chris Corp, Rachael (John) Aimesbury all of Charlevoix, 9 grandchildren, Gemma, Keira, Angus, Jude, Alex, Freyja, Archer, Olivia, John Henry, and one sister Cooky (Bob) Borths of Charlevoix.
