William "Bill" Worden (October 19, 2019)

William "Bill" Worden, 57, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, October 19, 2019, at his home.

He was born on June 12, 1962, in Bellefontaine, Ohio, to George Worden, Sr. of Sidney, Ohio, and the late Margaret (Madden) Honeycutt.

Bill was a family man who loved spending his time with his grandchildren. Be it watching them cheer, playing sports, or taking them fishing, nothing meant more to him. Besides his love of his family, Bill had several passions in his life; he loved motorcycles and his El Camino; he loved fishing with his kids and grandchildren, and he loved auctions and garage sales. The last 20 years of Bill's life was spent attending auctions and garage sales looking for anything that he might be able to re-purpose or sell. He met many wonderful people and made many lasting friends with his "Auction Family". Bill was very proud when he received his GED after he turned 50. For the past five years, while battling cancer, Bill turned to the internet as a means to communicate and reach new people. He participated in several online groups, cancer groups, and even created an online job posting board to help people find work. He was always trying to help someone if he could. He greatly appreciated the online friends he had made over the years.

Bill is survived by his wife of 39 years, Jami (Wheelock) Worden, whom he married June 7, 1980; his children, Shanna Totton and her husband Mark, of Troy, Ohio, Jessi Klosterman of Arcanum, Ohio, and Bryan Worden and his wife Christina, of Palm Coast, Florida; his grandchildren, Caiden, Bria, Devin, Hayley, Kaylee, Trinity, Aiden, and Brooklynn; his siblings, John Worden and his wife Annette, of Versailles, Ohio, George Worden and his wife Beth, of Versailles, Dave Worden of Stelvideo, Ohio, Larry Worden of Sidney, Ohio, Tom Worden and his wife Marti, of Greenville, Tony Worden and his wife Tiffany, of Gettysburg, Ohio, Michelle Bates and her husband John, of Birmingham, Alabama, and Becky Bilbro and her husband Frank, of Birmingham.
