Justin Korf

Justin Korf, loving son and brother, passed away on Tuesday, December 29th, 2020. He was the son of Patricia Merritt and Dean Korf. He was born in Bremerton, Washington and lived in Silverdale, Washington. He left behind a large family who loved him dearly, including his mother, father, grandfather Rex Merritt, two sisters Jessica and Rachel, one brother, Randall, his beloved nieces and nephew, and two half-brothers Dave Korf and Don Korf.

Justin was a lover of the outdoors. He loved to fish, and you could find him at one of the lakes most weekend mornings during fishing season. He was quick to laugh, full of love, and a fierce protector of the people he loved. The first to give you a big bear hug if you were having a bad day, or do something to make you laugh. A student of Archaeology and Anthropology he graduated from Western Washington University in June of 2020 as a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

Justin worked for the Department of Emergency Management, distributing Covid testing and Personal Protective Equipment in the last year of his life. He loved to help others, and was loved and respected by his coworkers. Justin left behind a large group of people that have been touched by his presence, his laugh, and his light. He will be missed greatly by all.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Justin was my friend. I watched him grow so much over the years. I know how much he overcame. He had so many plans, hopes and dreams. Rarely a day went by without a text from him. Justin is truly missed by me.
