J. Adam Ashworth, 39, passed away peacefully on July 22, 2021, in St. George, Utah, surrounded by his family. Adam was born in St. George on December 14, 1981, to Kenneth B. Ashworth and Jan Walton. He was raised in Santa Clara, Utah, the second of four children.
Adam married the love of his life, Bobbi Anne Orton, in St. George on January 19, 2002. Adam has been a police officer in southern Utah for the last 11 years, serving his community with his whole heart, integrity, and kindness. It's the job he was born to do, and he loved every minute of it! Children had a special place in Adam’s heart, and he made sure to always have police badge stickers on hand for them.
As a child, Adam enjoyed football, soccer, baseball, and golf. Baseball and golf remained his passion the rest of his life. Before entering the police force, he and his dad ran a successful welding business.
Adam is survived by: his wife Bobbi; three children Hanna, Mattison, and Jackson; parents Ken and Jan; siblings, Christopher (Sarah), Angela (Corey) Furin, and Nicholas (Tabby); grandma LaVerne Walton; and grandfather Jay (Joice) Walton; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends, and one godson. He was preceded in death by loving great-grandparents William Luker and Lena Jones, who taught us all the meaning of love for family.
We are forever thankful for the time we had with Adam. We also thank his St. George Police Department family, friends, neighbors, IHC medical staff, and the local community.
