Taylor Ann Green‘s brother, Richard Worthington Green, also known as “Worth,” has died at 36.

In an emotional message to her followers on Monday, the Southern Charm cast member’s sister, Catie King, shared the heartbreaking news about her older sibling, along with a photo of Worth smiling on a boat.

“You are the best big brother I could have ever asked for. This family will never be the same,” Catie King wrote on Instagram on June 12, along with a quote that read, “I love you to the moon and back.”

According to a June 14 report from Page Six, Worth, the oldest child of the Green family, who worked as a project manager for Weatherguard Roofing & Restoration in Charlotte, North Carolina, died last Thursday, June 8.

An obituary shared by the Westmoreland Funeral Home and Crematory, can be seen below:

Richard Worthington Green, “Worth” as he was known to everyone, age 36, woke up in the arms of Jesus on Thursday, June 8, 2023. Worth was born in Asheville, NC and was the oldest child of Richard C. “Rick” and Leslie Dark Green. He was also the older brother of Catie Green King and her husband, Jim, of Warm Springs, VA and Taylor Ann Green of Charleston, SC.

Worth was a 2005 graduate of Sunhawk Academy (“Bad Boy Camp” as he liked to call it) and a 2009 graduate of East Carolina University. He was a beautiful example of how to live life as fully as possible. His personality was vibrant, outgoing, and loving. Worth never knew a stranger. He had a love for travel which began when he moved to South Korea after college where he taught English as a second language. One of his favorite trips was playing his newfound passion of golf in Ireland with friends. Worth was no doubt an adventurer. He loved spending time at Lake James and spent many family and friend gatherings there making beautiful memories. Worth had recently started a small men’s group in Raleigh to reflect on life and challenge each other’s faith in Christ. There is no doubt Worth is now in deep, meaningful conversations with Jesus about any and everything.

Worth loved his family dearly. Any excuse to be with them, he truly loved with his whole heart. He was a vivacious and loving son and grandson, and the best big brother to his sisters, always being there as a protector and a cheerleader. Most recently he met the woman he adored and treasured. Caroline brought so much joy to his life. He loved her enough to bring her home to his family and was beginning to plan a future with her by his side. Friends too numerous to name will miss the exuberant love for life that Worth brought to them.

Following Catie’s post, Shep Rose, who dated Taylor for two years before their July 2022 split, weighed in.

“Absolutely one of a kind. A pleasure to know and laugh with,” he wrote in a comment.

Sadly, this isn’t the first death to rock the Southern Charm cast in recent months. Back in February, Olivia Flowers tragically lost her brother, Connor Flowers, at the age of 32. And at the time, Taylor’s family shared a statement, via Legacy.

“Precious Olivia, Robin and Garry… please know how heartbroken we are for your unspeakable loss. We are holding you in our hearts and prayers for the peace, comfort and strength of God to carry you through. With much love, Leslie and Rick Green (& all of Taylor Ann’s family),” they wrote.

Taylor also offered a statement to Olivia directly, telling her friend and co-star, “[He’s] celebrating with Jesus today,” as Olivia posted a birthday tribute to her late sibling.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Green family at this difficult time.

Southern Charm season nine is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this year.
