Corwin was such a wild soul, upbeat and willing even when he was struggling. I met him in stockbridge while was in high school he spent countless days and hours teaching me to sword fight, how to open up and have some fun and not worry about what others thought all the time. He was so bold and not someone who you could ever forget. He touched my life and we had just recently spoke and he was so happy. Its so hard to believe he is gone. May you rest in peace my friend, you have been lost but you will never be forgotten.

Corwin was not someone that you forgot easily, nor would you want to after having his friendship in your life. I first met him in High School, when we both attended Pioneers. His mom was my science teacher. I thought he was so weird at first, and he probably thought the same about me. But, we quickly went from two know-it-all high school kids into know-it-all best friends. Corwin is part of the reason why I still like things like table top gaming, the fine detail in miniatures, and Warhammer. The many days of table top gaming with Corwin his sister, and his dad. The trip to Florida we took together, and the long nights of trying to beat Monkeyball in strange ways. We were roommates for a while. And we even worked at two different jobs together. We went into high school as two strangers that had no idea that each other existed, and we came out brothers. I will never forget him for that, and will be eternally grateful for having his friendship in my life. R.I.P Corwin, and thank you.

Corwin and I first met while I was visiting Ave during my semester off from college. He kept me company while I was waiting for my friend to get out of class, and we bonded over a mutual love of Lovecraft. Corwin was the most anarchically creative individuals I've ever met. He ran what was hands-down the wildest RPG campaign I've ever been a part of, and I'll always remember helping him assemble medieval weapons out of PVC pipes and styrofoam. I will, in fact, always carry a memory of him on my body, as one afternoon spent testing those weapons resulted in a blow to my thumb that probably caused a small fracture I never got looked at and consequently didn't heal right.

Corwin was a loyal, caring person and a delightful oddball, the sort of person who's strangeness makes the world a richer and more worthwhile place. I'm deeply sorry for your loss and wish you the best in this difficult time.

Corwin was a regular at Grand River Brewery. He was such a unique person. I'm in shock that he's gone. Rest in peace dude.

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Corwin was quite the character. I enjoyed many conversations with him. I am very sad to hear of his passing.
