Laura, you have my deepest sympathies for the passing of Jim. He was nothing short of an inspiring leader while I served with him. In our countless discussions one could see that he was a loving husband and father. While our time together in the Navy was short, as they always were, I will never forget Jim's dedication to serve his country and most of all his friendship to his shipmates. Too many good stories to tell in the short space provided here. There will always be a place in my heart for Jim........he was one of the good guys.
Rick and Nancy Rybak left a message on April 20, 2022:
The Worthy family will always have a special place in our hearts. We remember all the great times we had at Mare Island—the guys singing all hours of the night in Jimmy’s garage, the block parties, cookouts in the back yard, and on and on. Jimmy was kind, funny, generous, and a loving husband and father. Our prayers go out to Laura, Matt and Megan. Laura, we are only a phone call away.
Don Baird left a message on April 20, 2022:
Prayers from my mouth to the ear of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May He give the Worthy and Baxley families Comfort in this dark hour.

To all of the Worthy family. I am so very sorry for your tragic loss. I didn’t know Jimmy as an adult, but I sure remember him well as a beautiful, precious little fellow. Sending prayers and hugs.
Kassidy Warren left a message on April 19, 2022:
Dear Laura, I know it has been a very long time since we talked or even saw each other. It’s been so long you may not even remember me, but I had the privilege to know you and Jim through Eden Westside. You and Jim both, were always very kind to me and I loved how funny y’all were and a joy to be around. So it hurt my heart and shocked me to know of Jim’s passing. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I know there are no words to bring any amount of comfort I wish You could have but as I lift your name up to God in my prayers, may you feel His strength to get you through through this heart-wrenching time. I’m praying for you and your loved ones. 💙 With much love and support, Kassidy Warren
