Though this seemed to be a positive development, unfortunately, the cancer got worse and Corbitt was moved to hospice care.

Comments his wife Jeanna:

“This is the bravest man I will ever know! He fought so hard and instead of 3 months, he ended up with 21 of them. I will love you forever for many reasons but most of all because of the way you loved me.
??RIP Bruce Corbitt YOU KNOW DAMN WELL YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN??”
