John Henry Jordan

Funeral services celebrating the life of Mr. John Henry Jordan, 89, of West Monroe, LA will be held at 12:00 P.M. Friday, April 14, 2023, in the chapel of Mulhearn Funeral Home West Monroe, LA with Rev.  Harry Lilly officiating.  Interment with Military Honors will follow in the Mulhearn Memorial Park Cemetery in Monroe, LA.

John Henry Jordan was born on June 2, 1933, in Delhi, LA and went to go play his guitar for his best friend, Jesus, in West Monroe, LA on April 11, 2023 in the presence of family.  He and his wife, Martha Louise Collier Jordan, were married 67 years.  They resided together at Landmark Nursing and Rehab, where he lovingly called all the staff “family.”

John was a devoted husband who loved his family, and showed his love by playing multiple stringed instruments, making wood furniture, and being an Auto Mechanic.  His hobbies have filtered down through his children and grandchildren.  His greatest love was his love for Jesus.  For many years, John was an elder at Bethany Full Gospel Church in West Monroe, LA, and served as part of the Praise and Worship Team.  His love for his Lord was evident in every aspect of his life.  He worked for many years at Brown Radiator. Every person he came into contact with had the Gospel of Jesus shared with them, his life was a walking testimony of his love for his God and his family.  One of his proud achievements in his life was his service to his country in the United States Army.

Survivors include his wife; sons, Glyn Jordan and wife, Monica; Mitchell Jordan and wife, Dawn; daughter, Debbie Russ and husband, Robby; nine grandchildren, Tracie, Charles Dean, Stephanie, Emily, Jessica, Jonathan, Joanna, Dawn, and Daniel; thirteen great grandchildren; sister, Lillian “Mick” Reems; sisters-in-law, Hilda Clack, and Kathy Sharplin; along with a host of nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Jonathan Jordan, Charles Jordan, Andy Shepherd, Jared Self, Justin Draughn and Willie Draughn.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 A.M. until service time on Friday at Mulhearn Funeral Home West Monroe, LA.

Later in his life, he enjoyed telling his stories to anyone who cared to stop long enough to listen.  Even at Landmark, his “responsibility” was to take care of Momma and share the love of Jesus.  He did both with all his heart, and he will be greatly missed by all.

Memorials may be made the the Bethany Full Gospel church in West Monroe, LA.

The family would like to give a special Thank You to the staff at Landmark Nursing and Rehab for all the loving care they have given to the family.
