Obituary

Roger Loyal Worden, 86, passed away Sunday, January 3, 2021 in Clermont, Florida.  Roger had a lifelong passion for the piano and was a self-taught musician who developed a unique jazz style. Born and raised in Chicago, he moved to Orlando in 1955 and joined the Navy in 1956 where he began his professional career playing in a rock and roll band. After the Navy he continued his career by playing in piano bars in Orlando, eventually landing in the Langford Hotel where he performed for 20 years. For a short while he was music conductor for Tiny Tim, and for Frankie Fontaine. Roger’s love for the piano was so great that he learned the inner workings of the instrument and made restoring and rebuilding pianos his lifelong hobby.  He was gentle, generous, loved to laugh and never met a stranger.

He was preceded in death by his parents Loyal and Helen Griswold Worden.  He is survived by his life partner, Marian Humberson; daughters, Debi Bradfield, Gina Bosic; sister, Julia Worden and Brother Donald Worden.

    Never ever will I forget you on that month long trip with Guru ji Sant Keshavadas in the summer of 1990. I still have many pictures of you too.

    I loved watching and listening to Roger at the Langford. He was a great musician, and a nice person. Many times he invited my mom to sing with him. Great memories. RIP, and condolences to his family.

    Your kindness, gentleness and wonderful music will not be forgotten. It was a priviledge to have you as a friend.

    Dear Roger, thanks for all the fun, the laughs, the crazy videos pointed at people's feet, your wonderful piano playing, and mostly for just being you. Enjoy your cosmic vacation, and maybe we'll meet up next time around. Love & blessings, brother.
