Richard S. Corbin, a retired General Motors Corp. master electrician, died Monday of cancer at his Joppa home. He was 67.

Mr. Corbin was born and raised in Framingham, Mass., where he graduated in 1960 from Framingham High School.

He served in the Navy as an electrician from 1960 to 1964, aboard the carrier USS Ranger. After being discharged from the service, he went to work as an electrician at the General Motors plant in Framingham.

In 1992, he was transferred to the old General Motors plant on Broening Highway, where he worked until retiring in 1999.

Mr. Corbin was a NASCAR fan and enjoyed repairing cars.

"He could fix anything," said a daughter, Wendy Gendron of Ashburnham, Mass.

He was a member of St. Stephen Parish Roman Catholic Church in Framingham.

A memorial service for Mr. Corbin will be held in the spring of 2011.

Also surviving are his wife of 46 years, the former Barbara Deibele; a son, Dean Corbin of Southboro, Mass.; another daughter, Tammie Barry of Panama City; Fla.; a brother, Roy Corbin of Port Charlotte, Fla.; two sisters, Betty Bradley and Kay Smith, both of Framingham; and three grandchildren.
