  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Mr. Warden with great grandpa to my granddaughters, Vanessa, and Viviana Castaneda.

    He was a kind, generous man. His great granddaughters will miss him.

    May he rest easy

  2. Grandpa Worden,
    I am so saddened by the news of your passing. It was completely unexpected, which is not fair. I could sit here all day and say “I wish I did this, or I wish I did that,” but I rather remember all the good you have brought to my life and my daughters lives. They’ve only seen you a handful of times in person, but they talk about you like you lived down the road, which makes me so happy. I will always be appreciative of your help & support when Antouine passed. I really hope you guys are both together right now, reminiscing! Natalie & Ashley, I’m so sorry for you both and will keep you in my prayers. Please have a beautiful ceremony! I am sending my love! My parents, Margaret & Jerry, send their love as well. We will be sending a donation to the Betty Ford Foundation in Grandpa Worden’s honor. Love you all!
    Rest easy, Grandpa.
    Sharon, Vanessa, & Viviana

  3. I worked with Stan for many years at Engineered Fluid Power. He was always so cool and relaxed and had such a great sense of humor. He was a joy to be around, and had an endless amount of incredible stories and amazing life experiences. Rest in peace.

  4. My heartfelt condolences to Stan’s family and friends. Stan was a good friend, we shared a passion for guitars, and I’ll never forget the first time he brought his early ‘70’s Gibson Dove to my office during a sales call to allow me to see it and play it for a bit. He was so proud of that guitar! I ended up showing him many of my guitars in my collection later that week… 20 years ago. He built two guitars in the last 6 years and we had breakfast at Eggspress almost every Thursday morning at 7:00 am during that time. Everyone I’ve talked to about Stan all agree… he was one of the “good ones”Stan will be missed by many, I feel blessed that I had the honor to know him and call him my friend. Rest in peace my friend!
