Walter Bobby Worth, 79, born November 7, 1942, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, March 8, 2022. Bobby was born to the late Mary Lee Pritchett House and Walter Worth in Tampa, Florida. He was preceded in death by his brother, Jessie Jump, three sisters, Dorothy Foskey, Linda Green and Sheila Claiborn, a son, Ricky Higgins, son-in-law, Lamar Hutto and two great grandchildren, Adilyn and Wyatt Music.
Bobby was a devoted member of Forsyth Apostolic Church. A lifetime resident of Forsyth, Georgia, Bobby established his local and successful business Industrial Propane Gas for over twenty years. Bobby and his larger than life personality and famous quotes will be remembered for his love of the Lord and his desire for others to know Jesus. Bobby found Jesus late in life, in the early fifties, but he made it his life’s mission to make up for lost time serving his Savior and others daily. He loved gardening, fishing and working in his yard and taking care of the needs of countless family, friends and neighbors. No one went in need if he knew about it.
We love our precious husband, daddy, pawpaw and uncle and miss him so much but we also look forward to the day when we reunite with him in heaven.
Bobby is survived by his loving wife of forty-five years, Fay Revell Worth; a sister, Jeanette Hattaway; children, Regina Sikes (Steven), Patsy Brice (Gil), Ricky Worth (Tami), Joseph Eaton, Becky Hutto and Gwen Music; numerous grandchildren; great grandchildren; nieces and nephews.

The family will greet friends from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Friday, March 11, 2022 at Monroe County Memorial Chapel. Rev. Jeremy Causey will officiate.
