Arthur James Worth 1929 — 2017

Arthur James Worth

Art slipped away in the early morning on December 20, 2017.  He was born in Victoria, BC on February 23, 1929.  He was predeceased by his youngest son, Jim Worth.  He leaves behind his loving wife Julianne, his children Gary Worth (Kathy), Carolyn Sinclair (Alex), Wayne Worth (Lexi), Viki Hamber, daughter-in-law Trish Worth, also eight grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.  He also leaves his sisters Leona Peterson and Valerie King and his step children, Karen, Stephen and Gregg.  A special thank you to Cindy for all her help and support.  Art had a very good life and his passion was baseball.  He started his baseball career in Victoria, playing minor league ball then signed with the Spokane Indians of the WBL and then on to play semi-pro in North Battleford and Edmonton.  For many years he played for the Victoria Transport Workers at the old Royal Athletic Park.  Art was inducted in Victoria Hall of Fame and the B.C. Hall of Fame. Art worked for the VMD for many years until they closed.   After moving to Kamloops, Art worked as an electrical supervisor for Canex working on the dams in Montana and in the interior at the Mica Dam.  Art loved his baseball, golf and fishing in his younger years.  He will be greatly missed.  A celebration of Art’s life will be held at a later date.

    It’s never an easy time to lose someone we love but Christmas time seems to be the hardest. I hope dad has gone to a better place than he has been for the past two years. I miss you dad. I am so sorry Julie. I wish I was closer to be there for you.
