Big loss for the Big Blue Nation. R.J. Corman Railroad group founder and Wildcat fan R.J. Corman has passed away at 58 years old from multiple myeloma.
Even though he was famous for his railroad company, Corman was a huge Kentucky fan; even going the distance to fly his private jet to Memphis in 2009 to pick up the newly-named Kentucky head basketball Coach Calipari. Since then, Cal and Corman remained close friends. He was also a major UK donor.
“Richard Jay Corman is hardly a household name,” wrote Forbes magazine in 2011. “But this entrepreneur, a son of Kentucky, has made himself a force in the railroad industry, where in up-from-nothing fashion he has created a thriving, highly respected company.”
Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
