Gary Worm travels the quiet, shaded streets of Stanford on his motorized wheelchair. Worm says he was born in Stanford in 1951 and spent three years in the military during the Viet Nam War. Stationed in Germany, Worm says he was busy rodeoing, competing in saddle bronc, bulls, bareback and wild horse racing events. In 1974, Worm says he was home in Stanford, crossing the railroad tracks when his vehicle was struck by a speeding train. “It took me from one side of town to the other,” he says. Worm is from an old Stanford family that continues to care for him, one resident says.
