Worth Toliver Coldiron, age 92, born December 8, 1927 in Grayson, Ashe County, North Carolina, passed away surrounded by his family at his home in Oxford, PA on Sunday, September 20, 2020.  He was the husband of the late Pearl (Susie) Pennington Coldiron who died in 2005.  He also was preceded in death by four siblings: John F. Coldiron, Mary L. Barber, Beulah G. Lewis Osborne, and Howard D. Coldiron.  Worth was the son of the late Freel and Bertha Baugess Coldiron Moxley.  

Starting from meager beginnings, he was able to build a happy, healthy, and full life with the love and support of his wife, whom he lovingly called Susie.  Having celebrated over 57 years of marriage, their union was a partnership built on love, respect and honor.  Worth and Susie had a partnership and marriage that defines a quintessential love story. 

Prior to his retirement, Worth was a carpenter and building maintenance technician.  He was a hard-working, honorable man who was a master of many talents.  He took every opportunity to make each day meaningful. 

Over his lifetime, he enjoyed a variety of hobbies, many of which he spent doing with his wife and family.  He enjoyed camping and fishing and even spent several winters living in Florida fishing from sun up until sun down.  His garden was beautiful, meticulous, and bountiful every summer.  Worth loved his family with all of his heart and being surrounded by them was his favorite way to spend his time. 

He is survived by his three children, Joseph Dale Coldiron (Jean), Larry Coldiron (Mona), and Juanita Mendenhall (Redsie) of Chester County, 8 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren with whom he loved dearly.
