November 06, 1991

J. Lawrence Worth Jr., a mechanical engineer who was 57 and known as Larry, died Saturday after a heart attack at his home in Pasadena.

A memorial service for Mr. Worth was being held today at the Barranco and Sons funeral establishment, Ritchie Highway and Robinson Road.

He retired in 1989 as general foreman of utilities systems at the Sparrows Point plant of the Bethlehem Steel Corp., where he worked for 30 years. Since his retirement, he has been associated with the consulting engineering firm of Whitman, Requardt and Associates.

Born in Baltimore and reared in Towson, he earned a mechanical engineering degree at Johns Hopkins University in 1956.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, the former Barbara Warren; a son, John L. Worth 3rd of Ellicott City; a daughter, Amy E. Wiesner of Savannah, Ga.; and two grandchildren.

The family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the Save Our Skipjacks Foundation in care of the Lady Maryland Foundation.
