Harney, a fixture at anti-nuclear rallies, died Tuesday of complications from cancer near Santa Rosa, where he had hoped to finish a book, according to his family. "We have truly lost a lot," said his nephew, Santiago Lozada, who was with him when he died. "Corbin was a World War JJ veteran and was known around the world for his activism against radioactivity and nuclear weapons," said Robert Hager, Reno-based lawyer for the Western Shoshone tribe. "He's irreplaceable to the Western Shoshone nation." "He was someone who just had this gentle spirit but a steely resolve that people should do the right thing," Hager said. "He thought people would eventually come around and realize the harm people were doing to Mother Earth." The family is completing funeral plans, but burial services will be at Battle Mountain Indian Community, where his wife, Marge, is buried. He is survived by his daughter, two granddaughters, four grandsons; seven great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchil-dren. Race time 1:45.53 Match winners and race time for top prire.
