Mr. Jordan is preceded in death by his son, Don Jordan; his parents, Slick And Corliss Jordan; and his brother, Max Jordan.
He was native of Jackson and a graduate of Clinton High School. He was a member of First Baptist Church Raymond and a Deacon, training union director with Parkway Baptist Church. He spent a lot of time witnessing about his Lord and Savior.
Mr. Jordan was a devoted family man who is survived by his wife of 71 years, Natalie; son, Ron Jordan; daughter, Brenda Bozeman (Tim); daughter-in-law, Brenda Gray Jordan; sister, Helen Lewis (Ray); grandchildren, Josh Jordan (Meredith), Christy Taylor (Brad), Jennifer Adams (Josh), Kevin Jordan (Jessie), Michael Jordan, and Patrick Jordan; 8 great grand children; and several nieces and nephews.
He was a lineman for MP&L about 20 years before starting his own business, Jordan Electric Company. He was one of the first contractors in the Jackson area that did Pole line construction, commercial and industrial work. He was a NECA contractor. His workers were from Local IBEW 480.
He was a member of the Masons. He enjoyed his home and family, doing things for them and with them. He enjoyed woodworking in his wood shop and spent hours working on projects for his family and friends. His latest project were boxes of different sizes for the grandchildren made from wood that his son Don rescued from an old barn. He loved cooking, gardening, fishing and hunting, but he was best know for his most passionate hobby “agitating”!
Enjoyed working on projects for other people. Whenever someone needed anything he was always willing to help. He was generous, loving, encouraging, one of a kind. When he told you something he meant it. (Unless he was agitating!)
In lieu of flowers donations made be made to the First Baptist Church Raymond Food Pantry or the charity of your choice.
