Celebrating the life and legacy of Al Worden
Colonel Al Worden departed this world for the second time on March 18, 2020. He left the first time on July 26, 1971 when he blasted off from earth perched atop the giant Saturn V rocket that lifted him and his two crewmates on their epic journey to the Moon and back.
Throughout the five decades in-between — indeed throughout his entire active 88 years of life — Al Worden had a profound positive impact on thousands of people all over the world as he fulfilled his varied roles of explorer, engineer, educator, poet, friend, partner, father, and benefactor.
On July 27, 2020 family and friends of Al will remember and celebrate the life and legacy of this remarkable man during an online tribute coinciding with the 49th anniversary of the Apollo 15 mission.
