Juan Jordan Obituary

Juan "Johnny" Jordan, known to his loved ones for his strong faith, harmonica tunes, and selfless spirit, was called home on November 13, 2023. Born on a blessed Christmas day in 1950, in the humble town of Edna, Texas, Johnny was a true embodiment of southern charm and divine love.

Johnny was a man of deep and unwavering faith. His devotion to God was evident in his daily life and actions. He was often heard saying, "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase," a quote by Martin Luther King Jr. that resonated deeply with him. His faith was not just in words, but in deeds when needed.

His love for music was as profound as his love for God. A master of the harmonica, Johnny could turn any gathering into a joyous event with his soul-stirring tunes. His music was a reflection of his soul - genuine, full of life, and deeply touching. His harmonica was not just an instrument, but a medium through which he expressed his love, joy, and faith.

Johnny was born to the late Antonio and Sylvestra Jordan. He was the beloved brother of Mary Ann Jordan, Lupina Jordan, Victoria Jordan Daquigan, Robert Jordan, Sylvestre Jordan, Ramon Jordan, and Bonifacio Jordan. He was preceded in death by his siblings Hortencia Nieto, Gloria Lincon, Antonio Jr, Ernesto Jordan, Santiago Jordan, and Esteban Jordan. Johnny was also a cherished uncle to Lisa Marie Trevino and many other loved nephews and nieces. Each of these relationships held a special place in Johnny's heart, and he cherished the unique bond he shared with each of his family members.

Johnny lived his life with a spirit of generosity and kindness that touched all who knew him. His memory will continue to inspire and guide us, reminding us of the importance of faith, love, and compassion. As we mourn his passing, we also celebrate a life well-lived, a life that was a blessing to so many.

In the words of Apostle Paul, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7). Johnny indeed fought the good fight, finished his race, and kept his faith. As we bid him farewell, we find solace in knowing that he is now in a better place, playing his harmonica for the heavenly choir.

Johnny Jordan was a man of God, a lover of music, a beacon of hope, a source of joy, and a pillar of strength. His life was a testament to the power of faith, the joy of music, and the beauty of a kind heart. As we remember Johnny, let us strive to live by the values he embodied - faith, love, and service to others.

Farewell, Johnny. Your harmonica tunes will forever echo in our hearts, and your spirit of love and service will continue to inspire us.
