EEI Statement on the Passing of USEA Executive Director Barry Worthington

WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 15, 2020) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement in remembrance of U.S. Energy Association (USEA) Executive Director Barry Worthington.

"We are all shocked and saddened by the news of Barry’s passing. I worked with Barry for many years, and he was a great friend, personally and to our entire industry. Barry was a globally respected and admired expert on energy issues. A tireless worker, he traveled the world in a nonstop search for consensus and innovation. 

"It is not an exaggeration to say that Barry was the heart and soul of the USEA, and his loss will be deeply felt throughout the association and energy communities he called home. 

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Louise, and to their children who were the center of his universe."
