Corky was born January 31st, 1963 in North NE to Edward (Cork) and Cleo (Slater) Tyan. He was the oldest of five children born to this union.
Corky married Tami (Robinson) on August 1st, 1998 to this union six children were born. He spent most of his life enjoying his true passion working in ranching and agriculture. He was well known for his handiness on the back of any horse he crawled on and his love for a good horse, and a few good dogs to call his own. In his younger years he won many belt buckles riding bulls and was an avid wild horse race participant with his brothers. Proudly winning Cheyenne Frontier Days wild horse in the 90’s and bringing home the ruby belt buckle.
Anyone that knew Corky well witnessed his free spirit and often childlike view of the world around him. For those that loved him they hope the sound of his signature laugh never fades away and that Corky has already been reunited with his best partner Bear.
