Obituary of Robert Monte Worthington
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Monte Worthington, after an arduous but hugely courageous battle with cancer. Monte was born in Vancouver and raised in New Westminster, and lived in Langley for years before his death. Monte led a colourful, fascinating life, undertaking various careers before joining Rogers Cable, later Shaw, where he worked for many years, and where he was president of Local 60 of the TWU.
Monte was a man of great faith, active in the Anglican Church at the national, provincial, diocesan and parish levels. In 2009 he was awarded the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster in recognition of his service to the church. He spent his life as a champion for others, fighting to right wrongs and serve all who came to him for help. He served as an auxiliary constable with the RCMP and worked with Air Cadets. He touched the lives of many people, who will remember him with love and mourn his passing.
Monte loved fishing, was a skilled woodworker and guitarist, a champion marksman, and loved cruising the back roads on his motorcycle. He loved a challenging negotiation, good Scotch, folk music and most of all, his friends, family, and framily chosen family.
Monte is survived by loving family, friends, and colleagues. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 28, 2018 at St Dunstans Anglican Church, 3025 - 264th Street, Aldergrove.
