Wordsworth to celebrate 80th birthday April 30

David Charles “Butch” Wordsworth will celebrate his 80th birthday on Saturday, April 30. 

He was born April 30, 1942, in Iowa City, Iowa, to Shorty and Gladys Wordsworth. 

Butch moved to Ozark County in 1954. He enlisted in the Navy and enjoyed a long career from which he retired in 1977. 

He moved back to Theodosia with his wife and two daughters after his retirement. 

The family purchased the Carte Court Motel there and in the 1980s they bought and ran the D-bar-D until it closed after the building burned. 

David and his wife still live in the home that Butch grew up in.

He enjoys fishing, hunting and spending time with family and friends.
