He was the son of Messina B. and Ellen (Eaton) Southworth, and great-grandson of Consider Southworth, once a prominent manufacturer here and chairman of the selectmen for several years.

He was graduated from Stoughton High school and later from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There he received his degrees in architecture and engineering that landed him in the architectural department of the United States Navy. He served the government in that important naval office for over 50 years. If the records could be searched they would reveal an amazing story of accomplishments in the naval department of the government, for a service of a half century on such a job, bears testimony of a valued service well rendered. He belonged to a long list of naval and professional societies. 

Last summer he visited at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur L. Southworth on Central street. Mr. Southworth was a cousin of the deceased. Aside from his profession, he was deeply interested in genealogies and spent much time outside in seeking out ancestral lines in families in which he was interested. He retired three years ago, but was recalled for professional advice for a time. 

He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Inez M. (Winthrop) Southworth of Needham; two nephews, Charles of Needham and Winthrop if Washington.
