Bob enjoyed life; he was never a tall man, short in stature but huge in spirit. He liked fishing, collecting coins, working around cars old and new, listening to country music and oldies on the radio; but most of all, his family and friends were his world. He loved being “Grandpa” to little Jenny.
His family includes his daughter, Jessica Worden of Stanwood; granddaughter, Jenny Morning; his siblings, Kathleen Richardson of Iowa City, Mary (James) Morrill of Brandon, Fla., Richard (Gloria) Worden of North Liberty, Roger (Phyllis) Worden of Okabena, Minn., Thomas (Darla) of Mankato, Minn., David (Julie) Worden of Fulda, Minn., Mark (LuAnn) of North Liberty and Charles (Ursula) of Farmington, Iowa; brother-in-law, Dale Sanderson of Iowa City; sister-in-law, Delien Worden of Westbrook, Minn.; as well as 26 nieces and nephews and many great-nieces and great-nephews.
