The family of Guy Busby Jorden are devastated to announce the sudden but peaceful passing of their beloved father, son, brother, nephew, and his proudest role, Grandpa and Uncle. Known warmly as “Buzz” to everyone he loved. Buzz was born in Houston, TX in 1960, and was the baby brother out of 4 siblings, though he went to outgrow them all. His family moved all over the country in his early years, but always considered Vidor, TX to be his home, where he attended events for the class of ‘79. After high school, Buzz toured the world as a Fire Control Technician for the United States Navy. He had several callings after his 12-year stint in the Navy, including being a Deputy Sheriff in Lafourche, Parish, LA, but his proudest was being a Grandpa and Uncle to his grandchildren, several nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. He enjoyed regular Taco Tuesdays with his Big Sister and Native American Studies, but family was his world. Buzz is proceeded in death by his son, Norman Emmette Jorden, his wife Ana Maria Sanchez, father, Emmette Jorden, Sr., his sister, Carol Jorden Cleveland, brother-in-Law, Larry Crocker, and many aunts and uncles.
