Philanthro­pic gifts continue from the estate of the late Jerry Worthy

- Special to the Herald BSACF

Jerry Worthy, a longtime Big Spring Area Community Foundation trustee and local philanthro­pist, passed away in February 2021.

Even after his passing, his impact is still felt throughout the community as he continued his philanthro­pic passion by leaving a large gift to the BSACF.

Former Big Spring resident Kent Lee Ivey shared these words with Roy Worthy on the life of his father. Mr. Ivey stated, “What a great life he had!! Warrior, Father, Mentor, Grandfathe­r, Believer. He touched so many lives. Well done Sir!” May we also add friend !!

In June of 2010, Jerry Worthy wrote an Epilogue in his biography entitled “A

Worthy Life” to encourage Big Spring and the community by saying, “So here's to the best for Big Spring and its future and may it always be a good place to live in a manner its citizens' desire.”

Thank you for the legacy you left us and making Big Spring a better place to live while challengin­g everyone to do what they can to better the community.
