1978 �" 2014

William Robert Korthof was only 36 years old on October 2, 2014 when he was tragically and instantly killed as a passenger on a motorcycle during a fatal collision with a car. Though his life was all-too-brief, that life was packed with diverse and meaningful action. It seemed as though there were nothing he could not do or could not accomplish. To name only a few of Will's passions, interests, and missions: marathon runner (nearly 40), committed environmentalist, vegan, scholar, licensed solar contractor and champion, hands-on technician, electric vehicle charging infrastructure installer, sustainable landscaper, energy efficiency expert, business owner and electric transportation advocate.

Will divided his time between Pomona and San Francisco. He was a member of the LGBT-friendly temples Beth Chayim Chadashim and Congregation Sha'ar Zahav.

Will was a beloved son, brother, and uncle. 

Will's brilliance and dedication inspired us. He was fearless; he turned possibilities into realities. We will miss him.

There will be a San Francisco memorial. Details by email, [email protected].
