Bob Wortham

     Retired Little Rock Police Officer Bob Wortham was born on May 18, 1958 in Boulder, Colorado and went to heaven on September 10, 2022, riding his Harley with the Blue Knights.  Bob had the heartiest laugh, a big beaming smile, and a sense of humor that would make you laugh (or roll your eyes!).

     He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Earl and Helen Pollock and JW and Maggie Wortham; his dad, Billy Wortham; and his granddaughter, Caitlin Wortham. He is survived by his “favorite people,” daughter, Amanda (Sean) Arbogast; and the reason for the sparkle in his eyes, granddaughter, Madison Kate; the love of his life, best friend, and mother of his children, Ginger Wortham; his dear mom, Ruby Wortham; his baby sister, Fawn (Joseph) Sachleben; and his treasured nieces and nephews, Bethany, Dalton (Cheyenne), Austin, Wyatt, and Jackson. He also leaves behind his daughter, Cassi Sewell; grandson, Hayden; sister, Becky Delaughter; and his little buddy, Duke.

     Bob was a 23-year veteran of the Little Rock Police Department. During his career, he was a Cadet, a Patrolman, a Detective, and a liaison with the DEA while working in narcotics with his drug dog, Jupp. Never going the expected route, he requested to end his career as a Patrolman in his favorite district where he could serve the community he loved. After his retirement, he opened several businesses including Good Belly’s Catering, Short Stop Dairy Bar, Argenta Star Café, and The Big Dipper. At the time of his passing Bob worked for the Nationwide Organ Recovery Alliance where he treasured delivering the gift of life.  A special thank you to Marc and all his co-workers at NORA for taking such good care of him in life and in death. Always the hero, Bob Wortham continues to save lives, even in death.

       Bob Wortham’s ashes will be interred next to his dad at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Columbarium after a private family gathering.

       A Memorial Service will be on Friday, September 16th, 2022, at 1:30pm at The Summit Church, which is located at 6600 Crystal Hill Road, North Little Rock, AR 72118. In lieu of visitation, after the service we will have a time to socialize and eat desserts, two of Bob’s favorite things.
