Retired Brother Dan Jordan


Dan Patrick Jordan, AKA-Danny, Dano, Jordo, Bubba was born September 8, 1949, to Bud & Vickie Jordan (Nana & Popo). He was the middle child of three boys. Danny successfully fought his cancer battle for 2 ½ years & was told “Carry on with life – all is good” after brain surgery August 31, 2023. Pneumonia set in and after 17 days his body surrendered into the Good Lord’s arms on October 15, 2023, at 74 years old.

Danny attended St. Anthony’s grade school & graduated from Lincoln High School in 1967. He served in the Army National Guard as a medic for six years. He became a Journeyman for the Electrical IBEW Local 347 Labor Union where his expertise took him into several directions over the years including an estimator for ABC Electric & owning his own business in rural Casey/Adair area. He was an active member of St. Pius X Catholic Church.

Danny married Debbie (Melton) Wheeler in 1968 and together they had one son Jeremy Jordan. He was a lover of life and adventure, laughter and good times were had by all! Together Dan & Jeremy “Buck” shared soooo many incredible times together watching football (go Hawks from Dan, go Cyclones from Buck – you can only imagine) hunting, camping, concerts, races, riding their Harley motorcycles on many trips. Gathering’s with friends & family was the highlight of his life.

Danny will be missed by many members of his family and many friends! He is survived by his son, Jeremy (Nicole) Jordan; his two grandsons, Zachary (Ali) and Jacob; great grandson, David; special companion, Phyllis Deremiah and Patchy; his brother, John Jordan; and many cousins, nieces & nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Chuck Jordan.
