Doria on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 6:44 pm It will be two years since you were taken from us. I remember all the good times we had on 3-C Facility. The Chili Cookoff we had, and you were so proud of your entry, but were beaten out of First Place by Frank Castillo. The trip to Famous Dave’s, LR’s for Chile Verde pizza, our Samba’s Christmas Party. We all started off as Co-Workers, became Friends, but ended up as Family. May God continue to comfort us as we still mourn your passing. Reply Sgt. S. O'Brien on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 1:28 pm One of my first days at Corcoran, after transferring, was working with Wimbley… he was so welcoming to me… a new officer coming into an institution where everyone has each other’s back… years later, I was working with him again… we reflected on when I was still fairly new and he told me that I fit in just fine at Corcoran… he even said I had the best nickname in the prison…SOB… you will be missed brother… may God open his arms and welcome you, your wife and son to heaven… God bless you my friend… prayers for your family, our Corcoran family and all affected by this tragedy… stay safe and God bless Reply M. Navarro Jr. on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 9:21 am You were my friend and brother, I’m going to miss the conversations we had about our boys and everyday stuff. My heart goes out your family, my prayers go out to your remaining family members and everyone who will miss you. I know you, your wife and son will be greatly missed. May you and your family Rest in Peace. As my son tells me every night…”Sleep with the Angels”. Reply P.
