Roy T. Wortman H’05, a longtime member of Kenyon’s history faculty, died Sunday, July 23, 2017, in hospice care at the Laurels in Mount Vernon, Ohio. He was 76 and a resident of Gambier, Ohio.
“Professor Wortman was a legendary teacher whom alumni described to me in superlatives,” remarked President Sean Decatur. “Once I met him, I discovered that all of the wonderful things I’d heard from alumni were true: He was thoughtful and warm, a deep listener who exuded not only wisdom but passion about history, the liberal arts, Kenyon, and most of all his students. I am honored to have known him; he will be missed.”
