Carden  spent over 50 years driving a school bus for Coffee County Schools, where he touched the lives of many people.  Mr. Bill, his family writes in his obituary, had a quiet authoritative manner that allowed children to enjoy their bus ride, while setting boundaries for their behavior. 

Carden was a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who enjoyed his family.
