Roger Earl Worden of Cumming passed away peacefully on July 13, 2010, at the age of 81. Born in Elizabeth, N.J., Feb. 11, 1929, and graduated from Nichols College in Dudley, Mass., in 1950, Roger was a gentleman; tall in stature, knowledge and heart. He served in the U.S. Navy Reserve and was the founder and owner of Quick Flight Stair Co. He was a champion skeet shooter and member of the River Bend Gun Club for many years. Roger's love of animals, especially of horses and family dogs, lead him and wife Judith to host equine-assisted services for people with special needs at their farm, which inspired the creation of Driving Magic Inc., a therapeutic carriage driving program for people with disabilities.
Roger is survived by his wife, Judith; sons, David and Carol of North Carolina, and John and Catherine; and granddaughters, Elizabeth and Olivia of California, stepsons, Jeffrey and Steven LaCross.
The Rev. Ron Preuss of Cumming First United Methodist Church, of which Roger and Judith are members, will officiate a memorial service at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 17, at Ingram Funeral Home in Cumming. In a private observance, Roger's ashes will be spread in the Amish Country of Ohio, the place where Roger found his greatest comfort.
In lieu of flowers, Judith Worden has asked that donations be made in Roger's memory to Driving Magic Inc., P.O. Box 279, Duluth, GA 30096. All donations will go directly to the care of the therapeutic horses Roger so dearly loved and to a scholarship fund established in his name.
