Andrew Wordes Laid to Rest in Milton Fields

Roswell's "Chicken Man" remembered in tears and laughter at Friday morning memorial service.

Andrew Wordes was laid to rest this morning, March 30, with family and friends sharing memories before sending him back to the earth

The words of Psalm 23 had visible reminders in the setting, particularly "God causes me to lie down in lush pastures."

Approximatley 100 people gathered in the lush pasture of Milton Fields for the service. Jim Bell, owner of the eco-friendly burial grounds Milton Fields on Birmingham Road, donated a plot to the Wordes family for his burial.

A lover of animals and friend to many, he was known as "Chicken Man" for his battle with Roswell over keeping them at his home.

Long live the legend of the Roswell Chicken Man.... a rare bird indeed.... I am so glad I got to know him personally... to witness his courage in this world of "go along to get along" no matter what the cost.... Andrew stood up for himself and others and for what is right...spoke up and spoke out.... no matter what the cost... He gets a purple heart for bravery in the fight for personal liberty and property rights against abusive city officials... Our communities need more Andrews and fewer government officials trying to justify their jobs by terrorizing innoscent citizens to death...
