Wilhelm Korber, 84, of Hanover, VA, died January 2, 2017.
He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Carol Windsor Korber; 2 daughters, Beverly Korber Dixon (John) of Richmond and Denise Korber Bishop (Craig) of Berryville; 2 sisters, Hannelore Korber Amestoy of Calabash, NC and Margaret Korber Brown of Colorado Springs, CO; 4 grandchildren, Robyn Bishop Simpson (Kenny), Steven Wilhelm Bishop, John Alexander Dixon and Emily Ann Dixon Cochran (David), and 6 great-grandchildren.
Born November 5, 1932, in Forchheim, Germany to Georg and Susanna Korber, Willi was one of 11 children. After immigrating to this country in 1955, he made his living as a carpenter then began his own construction company, WK Woodworking. A hard worker, he lived and raised his family in Loudoun County, VA until he moved to Hanover County, VA in 2004.
Over the years, he became known to family and friends as the expert to call for building or repair advice on most anything. He had a passion for children, animals, his John Deere tractor and garage. He took enormous pride in his home and yard and was well known for his charismatic personality and sense of humor. Willi will be terribly missed by all who had the pleasure to love and know him.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Lebanon United Methodist Church, Hanover, VA.
In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged for the Lebanon United Methodist Church Steeple Fune, 8492 Peaks Road, Hanover, VA 23069.
