Memorial Donations in Honor of Kip Korth

Kip

Kipling Thorsten Korth died on February 8 in the California Delta where he was born and raised. He was 55. Kip was born in Lodi, CA, to Lloyd and Pam Korth of Isleton.

He was a graduate of Rio Vista High School. In his 20s, he was a commercial crayfisherman in the California Delta. Upon his father’s retirement in 1992, he joined the family business at Korth’s Pirates Lair Marina on Andrus Island to oversee the marina as harbormaster. Kip always had a penchant for beautifying and improving his surroundings, which he did at all three marinas that he oversaw, Korth’s, Ox Bow Marina and Willow Berm.

He joined his daughter, Lauren, in protesting the proposed tunnel conveyance project of Governor Brown by carrying signs at the Capitol (handmade by Lauren) when the Governor was speaking about the BDCP a couple of years ago.

He is preceded in death by his parents. Surviving him are his wife, Linda; daughter Lauren; three sisters, Kandace and Kimberly Korth of Isleton and Kathleen Korth of Greenbrae, CA; one uncle, Allan Korth of Soquel, CA; two aunts, Jean Applegate of Isleton and Alice Hoffman of Angwin, CA; niece Molly; nephew Joseph and many loving friends.
