Marion, Ohio

Jordan Brian Lamar Harper, age 4 of Marion, gained his angel wings on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Nationwide Children’s Hospital due to a house fire.

Jordan entered into this world on March 3, 2014 to Gareth and Michelle (Shoffner) Harper in Marion, Ohio.

During his short 4 years with us, he had a smile that would charm his way out of any trouble. His bright blue eyes were as deep as the ocean. He always loved spending time with his family. In the summer, he would always be fishing with his brother and daddy. He was not afraid to play with his sisters and momma either. He loved watching the Power Rangers and was always trying to karate chop anything in his way.

Jordan was welcomed into heaven with open arms by his memaw, great grandma & grandpa Shoffner, great grandma & great grandpa Harper, great great grandma & grandpa Rhoden and great great aunt Jeanie.

Jordan’s memory will be cherished by his parents: Gareth and Michelle Harper of Marion; his siblings: Trevor, Alyvia, and Elizabeth Harper; and grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
