We have some very sad news to share. Early the morning of January 28th, Bill Worthen, our beloved friend, colleague and husband, went into cardiac arrest while attending a conference in Las Vegas. Life-saving efforts were unsuccessful and our dear friend Bill passed away.

This comes as a shock to all of us. We take some comfort in knowing that Bill left us a legacy of global leadership and innovation in the green building, architecture, and broader sustainability community. Urban Fabrick’s co-founder, Kyle Pickett, and the entire Urban Fabrick community are dedicated to continuing Bill’s global impact. In the coming weeks and months we will be sharing with you specific steps we all can take to continue this mission.

While Bill’s friends and family privately process this great loss, please feel free to reach out to Heather Gadonniex hgadonniex@gmail.com or Lynn Simon lnsimon@comcast.net.
