Running for a Cause

David Corfman is running the Badwater Ultramarathon July 12-14, 2010, in memory of his dad, Charles. Called "The World's Toughest Footrace," it starts in Death Valley at an altitude of 282 below sea level, crossing two mountain passes before reaching the portal of the Mount Whitney trail, 135 miles away. He will be sharing his story of preparing for and running this race to help raise funds in his dad's memory. Read more of his adventure and blog at Please contribute to the America Heart Association below, and help cure the disease that took Charles' life.

Charles Corfman - loved music

Charles W. Corfman, loving husband, father and grandfather, 77, of Holmesville, died Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009, at The Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus, from complications of heart disease.

Charles was born Oct. 8, 1931, in Newton Falls, to Vernal Wingate and Florence Avinelle (Morgan) Corfman, and married Janice Mae Krimmer on July 17, 1954. She survives.

He was a member of the Warren Junior Military Band when he was 14, and graduated from Newton Falls High School (Ohio) in 1949 and then from The Ohio State University in 1952, where he was a sousaphone player in the marching band. As a charter member of the OSU Alumni Marching Band, he dotted the "i" in Script Ohio in 1982.

He was a 50-year member of Wooster United Methodist Church, where he was a faithful member of the Chancel Choir. He performed in many Tuba Christmases and Handel's Messiah performances in the community.

Charles was self-employed, selling farm equipment and raising livestock for many years. He was Past Commander-in-Chief of Sons of Union Veterans, member of Given Camp 51, and was a retired Brigadier General of the Sons of Veterans Reserve. He was a 4-H adviser in Holmes County, and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and was successful on occasions.

In addition to his wife, Charles will be deeply missed by a daughter, Pamela I. (Frank) Corfman Smith of Fredericksburg, sons, Richard W. (Sue) Corfman of Orrville, David W. (Julie Shelton) Corfman of Cincinnati, and Daniel W. (Fay) Corfman of Fremont; grandchildren, Heather and Joshua Fath, Christine, Philipp, Kyle, Erich and Amy Corfman; and a brother, John W. Corfman of Columbus.
