Mickey Corr 1954 – 2017

After surviving a tragic motorcycle accident which left him physically and mentally handicapped for over forty years, Mickey Corr took his big smile to heaven on September 1.

Mickey is the son of Peg and Jim Corr, of Dillon. He was born in Malta, Montana, on October 21, 1954. He grew up in Joplin and Dillon, where he excelled at wrestling and art. While in high school, Mick wrestled for the Beavers and was a divisional champion and placed highly at the state tournament. While at Western Montana College, he became a collegiate champion wrestler and was inducted into the Bulldog Hall of Fame.

Mick enjoyed all types of art and planned on becoming an industrial and fine arts teacher. He enjoyed painting, pottery, woodworking and glass blowing, and spent many hours before and after his accident doing artwork with his father.

Mick is survived by: his parents; his brother, Dan Corr (Mary); and his sisters, Kathy Hilton, Patty Seidensticker (Jeff) and Ginny Waldorf (Tom). He is the uncle of eight nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the caregivers at the nursing home for their love and kindness to Mickey and his family over his many years as a resident. They would also like to thank the hospital staff and Doctors Weed and McIntyre for their unending compassion toward Mickey and his family over the years. Finally, the family would like to thank the amazing community of Dillon for their support and help with Mickey’s many life challenges over the years. They have been a constant source of strength and support.

Graveside services will be held at the Mountain View Cemetery on Wednesday, September 6, at 2 p.m.
