Tim, as he was called by those that knew and loved him, was born Jan. 11, 1955, in Calhoun City, Miss. to the late Bishop Alberta Wortham and Deacon Harold Wortham.
He received Christ at a young age at his family's church, Church of The Living God, Calhoun City. He was a faithful member of this church until his death.
Tim relocated to the Fort Walton Beach area in 1975, upon completion of United Electronic Institute in Birmingham, Ala. While here, he made numerous friends and extended family through his many jobs from InDyne, officiating with the Miracle Strip Association and his lawn business. Although he was always busy, he never hesitated to take the time to help a family member or friend in need.
He is survived by his loving wife, Jackie Lavonne Wortham of Navarre; daughter Jaleena Davis (Robert) of Gulf Breeze, Fla.; son, James "J.T" Wortham II of Navarre; sister, Lily Moore (Clarence) Memphis, Tenn.; brothers, John Wortham (Mildred) of Calhoun City and Paul Wortham (Gloria) of Huntsville, Ala.; in-law's, Rosetta Hill (Amos) Statesboro, Ga.; Ruby Tullie (Samuel) Wetumpka, Ala.; Johnny Smith (Valaida) Atco, NJ; and Beatrice Fields (Jose') Philadelphia, PA. He is also survived by one special granddaughter Jacquelyn "Quinn" Davis of Gulf Breeze; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends to cherish his memory.
