Alfred Joseph “Joe” Korbe of Wallace County and Garden City was born July 27, 1952, in Scott City, Ks to Alfred and Leona Korbe. He grew up in Leoti Kansas and went to Leoti Grade school, Marienthal Parochial School, Leoti Jr. High School, and graduated from Wichita County High School in 1970. He met and started dating his wife Paula in 1973. They were married on August 13, 1977. A year later, they welcomed the first of their 5 children. Joe loved his family. When it comes to wealth, Joe was rich where it counts, his family’s love. Joe had a passion for many things. He loved hunting, fishing, and all things outdoors. He also loved gardening. It was not uncommon for Joe to get carried away with his garden and plant hundreds of plants when a dozen would do. Joe also had a passion for animals. Not just the “normal” animals, he had a fondness for unique and interesting animals. Some of those unique animals included llamas, mammoth jack donkeys, racing pigeons, and goats among many others. But when talking about Joe’s passions, his passion for his family cannot be overlooked. To say he loved his family is an understatement. They were always his passion and they are his legacy.

Joe is survived by his wife Paula of Garden City, His daughter Stephanie Stroud, her husband Brad and their 3 children Joey, Levi, and Vivienne of Lenexa, KS; his son Travis Korbe and his 7 children, David, Ethan, Trevor, Tyler, Travis Jr., and Emilee of Sharron Springs and Spencer of Laramie Wy; his son Christopher Korbe, his wife Sarah and their 4 children Liam, Noah, Connor and Brody, of Spearville, Ks; His son Andrew Korbe, his wife Hailey and their 2 children Maddex and Haidyn of Garden City; and his daughter Caiti and her 2 children Bryleigh and Brynnalee also of Garden City. Other survivors include his brother Jerry Korbe, his wife Cindy, and their 2 children Jonathan and Justin of Dodge City. He is preceded in death by his parents Alfred Korbe and Leona Mae Atkinson Korbe, and niece Melissa “Missy” Korbe.

A funeral is scheduled for Friday October 23, 2020 at 10:30 Mountain time at the United Methodist Church of Sharon Springs. Pastor Galen Crippen will officiate. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Joe’s life. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial tributes be directed to Joe’s medical and funeral fund via Paula Korbe to assist with expenses.
