Albert C. Worth, age 72 passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 15, 2019 in Elk River, MN. Al was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and great friend to many.
He was born in Jackson, Michigan, son of Robert and Beulah (Babcock) Worth. Al graduated from Jackson High School in 1965 and learned his trade through Jackson and Washtenaw Community Colleges. Al had a great work ethic and spent 47 years of his career as a Senior Piping/Plant Layout Designer. His work took him to many different states as well as internationally where he made many friends along the way.
After retirement, Al chose to never slow down. Inspired by his daughter, he decided to go back and continue his education earning an Associate’s Degree with honors from Houston Community College and at the age of 69, a Bachelor’s Degree in Construction Management from the University of Houston.
This past year Al had the opportunity to substitute teach for the Katy ISD in Texas where he mentored many students and shared his wisdom.
Al is loved and survived by his beloved wife and soul mate Linda, son Robert (Kristine) Worth, daughter Beth Graham, grandsons Eli and Jaxon Worth, granddaughters Mikayla, Cierra and Aleiyah Graham and Alexis Worth, special nephew Seth Worth, brother-in-law Richard (Barb) Grant, sisters-in-law Doris Grant, Eileen Grant-Ball, and Sharon Grant, as well as many nieces, nephews and special cousin Gary (Sherry) Babcock.
He was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Beulah Worth, grandmother Neva, brother Garland and nephew Shannon.
Al was a very generous, kind soul who loved to think and plan ways to build his legacy and make a difference in the world. He often went out of his way to lend a helping hand to both friends and strangers alike. The loss of Al will be immeasurable to those that knew him.
