Willard Jordan Obituary

It is with deep sadness and broken hearts we announce the passing of Willard J. Jordan on Monday, March 18, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born on August 18, 1938, and was the oldest son of Jesse W. Jordan and Josephine Spears Jordan. Willard served in the United States Navy and after four years he was honorably discharged. He retired from Johnson Controls as superintended in Orlando, FL after working in construction most of his life. He was a 32nd Degree Mason and member of Lodge # 767 F&AM, a Shriner, and a lifetime member of the Elk’s Lodge. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, and playing golf.

Willard is preceded in death by his parents, Jesse and Josephine Jordan; sister, Linda Smith of Hartsville, SC; and one half-brother.

Survivors include his wife of almost 59 years, Patsy Jordan; brother Jim Jordan of Oak Island, NC; brother-in-law, Hugh Portrum; three half-brothers in Hartsville, SC; and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

Graveside and military services will be held at 1 PM on Friday, March 22, 2024, in Jarnigan Cemetery.
