Robert was born in Hanford, CA on July 8, 1948 to Merkel and Marjorie Alcorn, longtime residents of Corcoran.  Robert came to Corcoran at the age of 8 and spent most of his life here. He always loved this community and many friends he came to know through his work as a pharmacist for 43 years and various community activities.  He served on the Corcoran School Board for 20 years and considered it an honor and real privilege to be able to serve the children in this town.

Robert was preceded in death by his parents and a treasured grandson Brandon McBride.

Robert is survived by his loving wife Christine. He also leaves three children Kelly McBride (Phillip), Michael Alcorn (Amber), Valerie Kenney (Jim); and seven wonderful grandchildren; a sister, Roberta Williams (Frank); and a brother, Randy Alcorn (Cheryl).
