In Memory

James (Jim) S. Kor
-July 05, 2007

It is with tremendous sadness that I must announce the departure of a great and legendary person at Towill, Inc.  I received news that Jim Kor passed away early this morning; he had been battling a pulmonary disease.  Dennis Curtin and I are in communication with Pat Kor, Jim’s wife, to express condolences on behalf of Towill and to offer her any help that she and Jim’s family may need.  Warren McKean, Dawn Johnson, and Randy Smith are contacting colleagues and professional associations to inform them of the sad news.  A funeral for Jim will be held on Monday, July 9th at 3:00 pm at Moore’s Mission Funeral Home, 1390 Monument Boulevard, Concord, CA  94520

Towill was in large part molded by Jim and his legacy will endure at Towill for years to come.  Many of our clients and project team members worked side by side with him and we have all been touched by his exemplary work ethic and legendary brilliance.  Licensed in 13 states, Jim is an icon in the surveying profession.  Among his many career highlights, Jim received the prestigious Survey Project of the Year award in 1991 from the National Society of Professional Surveyors for his key role in the Superconducting Super Collider Project.

We could never thank Jim enough for his contributions to Towill as well as the friendship and support he always provided to friends, colleagues, and protégées. Goodbye Jim, you will be missed dearly by all.
