1919 to 2013
Robert Worden passed early on May 16 at 3:09 am. He was 93 and up until 100 days ago he pretty much went the distance on his own terms. Born at Letterman Hospital, located on the Presidio, in San Francisco and raised in Manteca, CA he grew up in the Bay Area before entering the Navy in 1941. Serving his naval time on a mine sweeper, Dad finished his tour of duty, returned to Southern California where he married Edna C. Worden. As a brewer, he spent almost 40 years with Anheuser Bush, before retiring. As a father he proved to be a great roll model, solid provider and a great dad! Fond memories of Brand Park, family vacations and the various sports events! All these qualities and simply the best attitude in the world! Always the optimist ever ready to play ping pong or baby sit and always ready to deliver that "big laugh!" Everyone loved Papa Bob!
He is survived by his step daughters Linda Head & Lana Speer; son William Worden; Nephews Brad & Steve Meyers; Grand Children Christine Bolger, Lisa Jasso, Casey & Abby Worden and 8 Great Grand Children.
