Mr. Langworthy had a career in the financial world that spanned 71 years, starting in 1948. He was a senior Trust Officer at The Hanover Bank, now J.P. Morgan Chase, a Principal of the New York Stock Exchange and Managing Partner of Wood Walker & Co., Securities and Brokerage Firm, Corporate Secretary of Lexington Management, a Mutual Fund and Advisory Firm, a Vice President of Madison Advisors, Senior Vice President of Munn Bernhard and Co. and President of H.J.

His daughter, Laura, chairman of H.J. Langworthy Investors, Inc. said "My father had two passions in life. He believed that anyone with application of effort and a good education could attain whatever he or she aspired to be and that there was dignity in physical labor and his greatest passion was growing his clients' portfolios."

I was spending an evening with my family just now and was suddenly reminded of Henry Langworthy, my first boss at Lexington Management. I googled his name and saw his photo in his obit online. I do believe he was bidding me a farewell and i do need to say thank you Henry for all you taught me, your patience, kindness and elegance. As my first mentor I am honored as your memory always will be. God grant you rest and condolences and peace to those you left behind. Thank you for everything.
