John “Art” Jordan Jr., 81 years old, passed away on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, in Titusville, Florida, where he resided for the past 20 years with his beloved wife, Ella, whom he affectionately called “E”.
He was born July 23, 1940, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Upon retirement they moved south to enjoy the warmer weather together. Art and Ella spent 60 wonderful years of marriage together. Their love for one another shined like a beacon into this world. They touched the hearts of many, as they were soulmates, and their love was unwavering.
He was self-employed in the construction Industry. He was a carpenter foremost but was fondly referred to as a “Jack of All Trades”. His knowledge touched the lives of many as he lent a helping hand to those he felt called to assist. He was a man of faith and belonged to the Faith Baptist Church in Titusville, Florida, where he volunteered his time and talents. He respectfully shared the word when it was needed or if he thought you would receive comfort from it.
One of Art’s biggest joys in life was riding his motorcycle with his beloved wife, Ella Jean. They traveled all over the country, attending rallies, meeting new people, and cherishing the freedom of the open road. He loved to sit around a campfire, laugh, tell jokes and share a good story.
He enjoyed going to flea markets, car shows, swap meets and dirt track races. Most often though, you could find him just “tinkering in his garage”, fixing or restoring his latest treasure.
Art had a large personality. He wasn’t afraid to “shoot from the hip” and tell it like he saw it. He loved his family unconditionally and was highly respected by many. Art will be forever missed and remain in the hearts of all those who loved him.
He is survived by his beautiful wife and soulmate, Ella Jordan
