He grew up April 22, 1963 in Arcadia, Calif. and attended Arcadia schools through high school. He moved to Pomona, Calif., in 1985, then to Glendora, Calif., in 2006.

After several trips to Sweet Home to visit family and go camping, Mr. Jaworski moved to Sweet Home permanently in December of 2012.

Mr. Jaworski loved to talk with people and would initiate a conversation with anyone. According to him, there weren’t any strangers, only people you hadn’t met yet. Plus, he usually had a smile on his face that added to his warm, caring nature. He had a creative imagination and was a vivid storyteller.

Mr. Jaworski loved to camp. He was an avid CB radio user, and enjoyed a wide variety of electronic communication devices. His handle was the White Knight. He also participated in several California and Oregon Renaissance Faires such as Shrewsbury in Kings Valley, Canterbury in Silverton and Big Bear, Calif.

He was preceded in death by his parents: his father in 1986 and his mother in 2005.

A funeral Mass will be held at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 23, at St. Helen’s Catholic Church. A reception will follow at Sunshine Industries, 1333 Clark Mill Road.
