Former Cal High teacher, Ironman dies unexpectedly

Former California High School robotics teacher John Korzick passed away unexpectedly on April 1. He was 65.

Born in Connecticut, the Danville resident competed in seven Ironman Triathlons and could often be found running along the Iron Horse Trail with friends.

Korzick taught at Cal High for six years, during which time he created the Engineering and Design Academy, coached freshman football and men's lacrosse. In 2010, Korzick was honored as SRVUSD teacher of the year and retired from the district the following year. He planned to teach a graduate-level course at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China in September of this year.

He is survived by his wife, three daughters, three sons-in-law and seven grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, April 4th at 1 p.m. at Wilson Kratzer Chapel of San Ramon Valley (825 Hartz Way, Danville).
