In loving memory

In Loving Memory
Herbert Mark Jordan

July 12, 1950 - December 4, 2009

My father was a wonderful dad.
He worked hard to provide for our family
He did his best to make sure he showed up to cheer us on
at ball games, choir and band concerts, track meets
and anything else we were doing
even as we became adults.
He drove many miles to drop us off here and pic us up there
(twice across the country for me)
And even when his body was giving up he pushed hard
to make sure he could walk me down the isle and dance with me at my wedding

And he will always be with me... he whispered that over and over in my ear as we danced.

I love you Dad!

The choir of angels in heaven are enjoying the addition of the beautiful tenor voice of Herbert Mark Jordan, who went to be with the Lord on Friday afternoon, December 4, 2009, at his residence following a six year battle with cancer.

On July 12, 1950, Herb was born the son of the late Bart and Audrey (Sheets) Jordan. He was a lifelong resident of Mount Gilead, and graduated in the Mount Gilead High School Class of 1968.

For nearly 20 years, Herb worked as a warehouse manager at the Marion Correctional Facility.A man of deep faith, he attended the Alum Creek Friends Evangelical Church.

Known for his beautiful tenor voice, Herb was honored to have sung with the Gracemen of Grove City, the Sontunes of Mount Gilead, and in his home church.

Truly an avid Ohio State University football fan, he looked forward to every Saturday his beloved team would play.

Herb will be missed by his wife, Sharon Jordan, whom he married on November 5, 1982; and by his adult children, eight grandchildren, two brothers and one sister.
