Darryl Bruce Warden, 58, of Fayetteville, went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, June 15th. He was born and raised in the Walnut Grove community of Madison County, Alabama.
Bruce was a faithful Christian of nearly fifty years who devoted his life to helping others. His selfless testimony and warm smile left a lasting impact on all those he encountered. He was an esteemed member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church of Flintville, Tennessee. Bruce was a highway foreman for many years at Ashburn and Gray/ APAC contractors in Huntsville, Alabama. He was currently employed as a supervisor for Solid Waste Disposal Authority in Huntsville. Bruce had an inspirational work ethic that encouraged others to take pride in their work no matter how small the task. Whether he was tending a garden, repairing a piece of equipment, or searching for arrowheads, Bruce enjoyed being outdoors among nature. Always humbling himself before God in everything he did, Bruce had an unconditional love for his family and friends that will never be forgotten.

Robert & Eunice Biles Warden and Terry & Jennie Hunter Campbell. He was also preceded in death by his wife's step-father, John J.
