Robert Wayne “Bubba” Born, Jr. passed from this life July 25, 2022, just ten days past his 63 rd birthday, born July 14, 1959. A Pensacola native, Bubba attended Tate High School and graduated from the University of West Florida with a BS in Industrial Technology.
He formed R. W. Born Mechanical, a successful industrial HVAC company, among other achievements.
Robert loved his family, fishing, his pet dogs, notably Ace, who perished in Hurricane Ivan, and his work, contributing his HVAC skills to many developments in the Pensacola area and beyond.
Bubba is remembered as a persistent and brutally honest businessman with a workman’s spirit.
Early to midlife, his work ethic exceeded all bounds. Later in life, an adventurous spirit took
hold of him along with an extended bout of alcoholism, although he said he’d found God and
peace before he passed on. Something of a tall American tale, he’s known for surviving the
direct impact of Hurricane Ivan’s storm surge on waterfront property in Pensacola, proof of the
man’s bullheaded nature and capacity for survival. His life had a definite impact on all who met
him. Despite his past success as an HVAC entrepreneur, Bubba privately wished he had become
a veterinarian, evidence of the kind nature he possessed that those close to him will remember.
Bubba is survived by his daughter, Lindsey Danielle Born, and adopted son, Spencer Robert
Born. Lindsey made Bubba the proud grandfather of her son, Tyler Leigh Auclair. Bubba also is
survived by his sister, Jan Elizabeth Born, and brother, Timothy George Born, and their loving
parents, Robert Wayne Born, Sr., and Jan McLellan Born.
A visitation and memorial service will be held Saturday, July 30, 2022, with the visitation at
10:00 AM, followed by the memorial service at 10:30 – 11: 30 AM at Scenic Hills Church of
Christ, 1295 E Nine Mile Road, Pensacola, Florida, 32514.
In place of flowers, donations are requested to be made to Waterfront Rescue Mission, available
online or by mail, PO Box 870, Pensacola, FL 32591.

Janie Ann Worthing (nee Ferrell) was born to Glen Ray Ferrell and Meredith Loretta Ferrell (nee Duty) on January 29, 1949 in Logan, West Virginia. She died tragically in a car accident on July 17, 2022 at the age of 73.
The eldest of four children, Janie helped to take care of her siblings while doing things around the house, learning to cook at an early age.
Growing up in the hills of West Virginia, Janie had a great love of nature. She enjoyed watching birds and even made-up stories about their lives. She often said she felt the most peace when sitting on top of a mountain and feeling God’s presence all around her there in nature.
Janie’s early schooling was in a one-room school house where her mother was teacher. By her high school years, she was in a large school building. She was an active member of the National Honor Society and took her schooling seriously.
After graduation high school, Janie went on to a business school in Ohio, where she learned bookkeeping and shorthand. She enjoyed her time there and used the skills learned at the school throughout her entire career. In what would become the biggest move of her life, Janie took a job with United Airlines and was stationed at what is now Reagan National Airport. She worked in the Operations department and really enjoyed her work there. A few days after starting her job with United Airlines, Janie met a young man named Leigh Worthing. The two were married in a small ceremony a few months after meeting and stayed married for over 50 years. They never stopped loving each other through thick and thin and trusted to God to see them through all that life brought their way.
After having her daughter, Sarah, Janie soon became a mother to all of Sarah’s friends. Every friend that came to her house called her “Mom” and continued to do so until her death. Janie passed her love of nature to her daughter and the two enjoyed watching sunrises and sunsets together whenever possible.
After working for a travel agency for some time, Janie began working for the school system and eventually retired after many years of service. She always enjoyed loving on children.
Janie always had a smile for people and became a greeter at her church. It was one of her greatest joys to be able to show hospitality to others and make people feel welcome. She loved hearing about everyone’s lives and encouraging them.
Janie was preceded in death by two children, and her husband. She is survived by her daughter, two grandchildren, her mother, her brother, and 2 sisters. She will be greatly missed.
