Mitchell James Corbin, affectionately known as “Mitch” or “Uncle Mitchell,” was born on September 10, 1956 in Assawoman, Virginia to James Elijah Hope and the late Muriel Corbin Hope. Mitchell was the eldest of three children born from this union. God gently wrapped His loving arms around Mitchell and carried him home on March 10, 2020 at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, following a brief illness.

Mitchell attended and graduated from Accomack County Public Schools. Upon his graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army, where he served four years and was honorably discharged. Mitchell held several jobs following his discharge. His favorite jobs were working in the sub shop with his Uncle Bunny in Philly, working and riding on the truck with uncle/cousin, Sherwood and Shawn Wharton, doing odd jobs with his Uncle Buster early in the morning, and working the fruit stand with Mr. Petey.

Mitchell accepted Christ at an early age and joined Jerusalem Baptist Church, where he was baptized. He served in various positions within the church. He always dreamed of becoming a preacher and a mortician.

Mitchell loved and adored his family. In fact, just the mention of his family would bring such a big smile on his face. If Mitchell was told Uncle Bunny and Uncle Layton were coming, he would start getting ready early in the morning waiting on them to get there. He would keep asking, “Have you heard from them yet?” If they didn’t get there by the time he thought they should have been there, and wait anxiously. Thanks Uncle Bunny and Uncle Layton, you have always been there for Mitchell from beginning to the end, you’ve always been a phone call away. He loved you dearly.

Mitchell shared a special bond with his great-nieces, whom he called “his girls.” Uncle Mitchell loved watching them praise dancing, singing, and playing church. When they came home from church on Sundays the first thing he would ask them was: “What the man say? “What the man talking about?” When they would come home from school he would say, “What y’all learn in school today?” He shared a special bond with his baby sister, Pam, whom he called “The Boss” and “His Banker” and his brother-in-law, James. He and James were more than in-laws, they were brothers. James was a close friend and caregiver.

Mitchell was preceded in death by his mother, Muriel Hope; nephew, Michael McKyer; maternal grandmother, Daisy Downing; paternal grandmother, Almarine Hope; paternal grandfather, Layton Hope, Sr.; maternal grandparents that raised him, Johnnie and Violet Godwin; uncle, Daniel Hope; and best friend, Clyde Thomas.

He leaves to cherish his loving memories: a daughter, Bahati Corbin; grandson, Capone Guyton; granddaughter, Kali Corbin; father, James Elijah Hope (Laura); two sisters, Wendy Hope and Pamela (James) Johnson; uncles, Layton (Mary Ellen) Hope, James M. “Bunny” Hope, and Larry (Odessa) Downing; an adopted uncle, Sherwood Wharton; three aunts, Dorothy Harmon, Betty Lou Downing, and Carol Jason; two great-aunts, Laurue Holden and Joyce Wharton; four nieces, Keishia (Bert) Jubilee, Kinya (James) Tull, YaShica Hope, and Shaka McKyer; nephew, Raymond McKyer; great-nieces, LaNequa (Quintavion), Rakaya, Kaliyah, Zyha, “his girls,” NeVeah, Uriah, Amani, and SaMiyah; great-nephews, Rae Quan, Jaden, and Zion; and a host of family and friends.
