Herbert Mark Jordan

July 12, 1950 ‒ December 04, 2009

Mount Gilead, Ohio

The choir of angels in heaven are enjoying the addition of the beautiful tenor voice of Herbert Mark Jordan, who went to be with the Lord on Friday afternoon, December 4, 2009, at his residence following a six year battle with cancer.

On July 12, 1950, Herb was born the son of the late Bart and Audrey (Sheets) Jordan. He was a lifelong resident of Mount Gilead, and graduated in the Mount Gilead High School Class of 1968.

For nearly 20 years, Herb worked as a warehouse manager at the Marion Correctional Facility. A man of deep faith, he attended the Alum Creek Friends Evangelical Church.

Known for his beautiful tenor voice, Herb was honored to have sung with the Gracemen of Grove City, the Sontunes of Mount Gilead, and in his home church.

Truly an avid Ohio State University football fan, he looked forward to every Saturday his beloved team would play.

Herb will be missed by his wife, Sharon Jordan, whom he married on November 5, 1982; and by his adult children, eight grandchildren, two brothers and one sister.

The Jordan family will greet friends from 4 – 7 p.m. on Monday, December 7, 2009, at the Snyder Funeral Home, 76 S. Main St., Mount Gilead. Services celebrating his life will be held on Tuesday, at 11:00 a.m., at the Alum Creek Friends Evangelical Church, 3385 St. Rt. 229, Marengo, with Rev. James Brantingham officiating. Burial will follow there in the church cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Alum Creek Friends Church, c/o Building Fund, 3385 St. Rt. 229, Marengo, Ohio 43334.
