It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, James John Ellis Jordan (JJ) on May 8, 2017. He was predeceased by his wife of 28 years Jean and mother and father, Mae and Red Jordan. Surviving him is his sister Sonja Blundell (Ed) and brother Ken Jordan (Diane), daughter Keri Murray (Graeme) and their children Tiarnan, Sophia and Hanna, son Donnie (Denise) and their children Dustin and Sydney, stepson Kevin (Melody) Hughes and their son Kyle, as well as many nieces and nephews and other extended family.
Jim started his working years at Nitinat driving logging truck. Later on he worked as a heavy duty mechanic for several logging outfits. In his younger years he enjoyed camping on Tent Island with family and friends. He was a lifetime Kinsmen member and enjoyed the volunteer aspect as well as the social one.
In his later years he and Jean gave up the boat for a trailer and spent many happy summers in Honeymoon Bay. He also loved spending time with his grandchildren and attending their many sporting events, rain or shine.
It was JJ’s wish to have a Celebration of Life. It will be held on May 20th, 2017 at the Duncan Lodge, 2244 Moose Road, from 2-6pm. Please bring a story that JJ would love to share with family and friends.
Many thanks to all the nurses on the second floor at Cowichan District Hospital,
Dr. Manhas, friends and family.
In lieu of flowers a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
