Lyman was born on June 29, 1932, in Idaho Falls, ID., the son of Lyman Morden Sr. and Florence (Benson) Morden.
In June of 1952, Lyman joined the Navy and was stationed at Whidbey Island, WA.
He married his wife Ruby Ann (Bianco) Morden, July 10, 1961.
He then hired on with the Sears and Roebuck Company driving truck for seventeen years.
His uncle Walt taught him to play the fiddle by ear, he also played the lead guitar.
Lyman’s first band was the “Comanchero’s”, and then “Night Hawk”.
He could never stand still up on stage!
As far as family and friends are concerned “he is a legend”.
Lyman’s good ole’ saddle horse on many cattlemens rides and up on top of a mountain was his church.
Lyman was preceded in death by his wife, Ruby; and five of his brothers, Don and Mike Morden, Fred, Doug and Dick Brumfield.
He is survived by three daughters, Vicki Ahlgrim, Becky Jo Morden and Shawn Soberg; and two sons, Guy Morden and Merle Morden; and four brothers, Wayne, Paul, Jim and Larry Morden; his four sisters, Velma Carter, Goldie Oakes, Lois Brummett and Phyllis Brashler; twelve grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
There will be a memorial service for Lyman in the spring…..He is terribly missed!
