Bob Korgan Obituary
Bob Korgan

Bob Korgan, age 76, transitioned his Earthly journey into the next experience on May 29th, 2015. Surrounded by an abundance of family and friends who expressed overwhelming gratitude and appreciation for his time with us, we cried together, laughed together, told stories together, and then raised our glasses to make a toast to this wonderful human being. We are convinced that he was welcomed by his parents, sister, and youngest brother. Bob is a first generation American, and served his country with the U.S. Army. This friendly and generous man was born on July 4th, 1938 in San Pedro to George and Emilija Korgan. He attended San Pedro schools. He enjoyed cruising around Pedro in a 1948 Buick during the 1950's and 60's. He is the third of five children who called 8th Street "home." He is a witty storyteller, football fanatic, unpretentious, and very sociable. He is an ever-hopeful lottery player, and always thought he was a play away from the "big one." He charmed everyone with his presence and will be intensely missed. He is eternally memorialized through his family and friends, and his spirit will always be in our hearts. The family extends much gratitude to Vitas Hospice for their crucial help and support during Bob's transition. In lieu of flowers, the family strongly encourages contribution to the Korgan Memorial Scholarship Fund, which allows Bob to live on in the form of supporting college students with financial need. Payment in reference to the Korgan Memorial Scholarship can be made by check payable to St. Katherine College, mailed to 1637 Capalina Road, San Marcos, CA 92069, or also accepted via telephone to the college's CFO, Ryan West, at (760) 471-1316.
