via San Francisco Chronicle:
A motorcyclist who was struck and killed by a car in San Francisco’s Lower Haight neighborhood was identified Tuesday as Bill Beckwith, a contractor and carpenter who co-hosted the HGTV show “Curb Appeal.”

Beckwith, 38, was hit by a car near the corner of Oak and Steiner streets about 8:30 p.m. Monday, police said. He died at San Francisco General Hospital. The driver of the car, a 30-year-old man, stopped after the crash and cooperated with investigators. His name wasn’t released. Beckwith founded a San Francisco company in 2001, BB Design Build, that specialized in cabinetry and finish work. He went on to star on “Curb Appeal,” a show in which people’s outdated homes are given makeovers.

A native of Maine, Beckwith graduated from the University of Montana with degrees in modern dance and English. He was a kickboxer, yoga enthusiast and martial artist, and an actor who was a member of the Screen Actors Guild. Beckwith’s family launched a Facebook page Tuesday to remember him. His girlfriend, Yulia Korneeva, wrote, “My love, so kind and bright, adventurous and strong. You are loved by so many good people! I wish you could stay with us for way longer.”
