L. Worth Holleman Jr., a longtime member of the team at law firm Carruthers & Roth in Greensboro and an involved member of the Greensboro community, died Wednesday morning at age 67 after a battle with cancer.

“He was always the entrepreneur,” said Ken Keller, a partner at Carruthers & Roth who had known Holleman since law school at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. “He was quite the marketer, the rainmaker — he attracted clients. He never met anybody he didn’t like, and who didn’t like him.”

A native of Pittsboro, Holleman attended UNC for undergrad and for law school before beginning to practice law in Greensboro in the mid-1970s. He was an attorney at law firm Tuggle Duggins when in 1986 he and others left to join Carruthers & Roth.

Holleman built a commercial real estate practice that catered to both large developers and small businesses. He was a member of the Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition and was involved with the Guilford Merchants Association. He was also a past chair of FirstPoint Inc.

Holleman’s other community involvement including serving on the Greensboro War Memorial Commission and the boards of the Central YMCA, Greensboro Transit Authority and Greensboro Zoning Commission.

“It seemed that Worth knew almost everyone in town and everyone was his best friend,” said Scott Dillon, managing director at Carruthers & Roth. “He had a great sense of humor and a laugh we will never forget.”
