Wyatt Jordan

July 30, 2001 ‒ November 07, 2018

Fredericktown, Ohio

Wyatt Jordan, age 17, of Fredericktown, passed away at his home, Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

On July 30, 2001, Wyatt was born in Delaware, OH, son of Isaiah Victor Jordan and Billie Jean Crego.  He was a Senior and honor student at Highland High School.  Growing up, he played many sports and excelled in wrestling.

Wyatt worked as a stocker at the Kroger in Mount Vernon the last few years.  He enjoyed the relationships he developed there with his coworkers.

In many ways, Wyatt was your typical teenager.  He enjoyed hanging out with his friends and goofing off.  He loved anything to do with cars, especially racing and working on them.  In addition to cars, he liked dirt bikes, four wheelers and anything else that would make him go fast.  He embraced technology, liked playing video and computer games, and listened to a wide range of music.

To many of his friends and family Wyatt was known as “Stickers” because of his huge collection of decals and stickers.  Almost every day he would receive at least one package in the mail with some sort of decal.

Wyatt had his own unique style, and he owned it.  He always thought outside the box.  Wyatt was charming, had a wonderful sense of humor and would do anything to make others laugh.  He was ornery as hell at times too.  A protector, Wyatt was always sticking up for others or willing to help out a stranger.  He was a fun loving young man, but had an old soul and always fit in with any crowd.

Wyatt will be dearly missed by his father: Isaiah (Jackie) Jordan of Fredericktown; his mother, Billie (Nick Galbraith) Crego of Columbus; a brother, Colton Barger of Kilbourne; grandparents: Russ and Amy Jordan of Cardington, Mark (Debbie) Crego of Kilbourne, Janet and Rusty Porter of Chesterville; Aunts and Uncles: Jessie (Shane) Kohler of Caledonia, Kaleb (Stephanie) Jordan of Chesterville; his pit bulls: Ruger, Daisy and Dixie; numerous cousins and too many “brothers from another mother” to mention.

He was preceded in death in 2010 by his grandmother, Evette (Shady) McGraw.

Wyatt’s family will greet friends from 3 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 15, 2018, at the Snyder Funeral Homes, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead.  Services to honor and celebrate his life will follow at 7:00 p.m. with Celebrant Galen McLeod officiating.

Memorial contributions in Wyatt’s memory may be made to the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation, 1225 Dublin Rd., Suite 125, Columbus, OH 43215 or at www.ohiospf.org.

Snyder Funeral Homes of Mount Gilead are honored to have been chosen to serve Wyatt’s family, and your special memories or condolences may be shared with them by visiting www.SnyderFuneralHomes.com.

  • So sorry for your loss words can’t express how awful this is u ate in my thoughts always

  • Ada and Dean,
    I am over-whelmed with grief at this time.
    There are not enough words to express my sorrow.
    Please know that I am sending you prayers,
    And my God wrap His loving arms around you
    during this difficult time.

  • Wyatt’s family,
    My heart goes out to you, at this very difficult time. I really enjoyed working with Wyatt. He was such a nice young man. Always taking time to speak to me and asking how I was. There were times he would arrive at work early and I would be in break room. It gave us time to talk. He will be missed, but never forgotten. Glad I got to meet him. Rest in Peace, Wyatt. Sending Hugs to the whole family.

  • Wyatt was a sweet young man, and there are just no words to express how sorry I am for all of his family and friends. Please know it was a pleasure to have met him at work I am deeply sorry. Hugs , love and prayers to you all

  • From Rocky and Cindy our deepest condolences buddy if there’s anything that you or the family needs do not hesitate to call me you are very good friend of mine and I go out of my way to help friends in need

  • Isaiah and Jackie
    Russell and Amy
    Kaleb and family
    Words cannot express how heartbroken I am for all of you. I didnt know Wyatt as a young adult but I remember him as the cutest, ornery little boy. He so reminded me of his Dad as a boy. I love you all and am praying for strength and peace as you go through this. Remember you are all so loved.
    In our thoughts and prayers always
    Larry and Shanon

  • I loved this kid like he was my own and enjoyed being his “go to manager” at Kroger!!! I’m going to miss his smile, his humor, his incredible drive to do good job, his complaints about his paycheck 😂 and his messages that always started with “are you working Mrs May?” (always knowing it didn’t matter, I would help either way). I am struggling to deal with knowing I won’t see or joke with him again but feel better knowing that he is no longer suffering inside. I’m sending prayers, hugs and love to all his family and friends. We are better people for having known him!!! Gonna miss you kid!!! ❤️🙏❤️

  • Wyatt held a special place in my heart as he did with many people at Kroger. He was always such a joy to see. He would walk by my desk everyday to go to his locker and I would always ask what color are your eyes today! I can’t express how heartbroken I am to night see his bright smiling face everyday and have him sit and the desk next to me chatting and of course showing me his car out of the window! He was so loved and will be so missed. Sending prayers to all his family and friends.

  • I didn’t know Wyatt for very long but he was always so sweet. Always spoke and made me smile. He will surely be missed by his Kroger family as our hearts go out to you all as you deal with this difficult time.

  • Wyatt was a nice kid. I had the pleasure to work with him. He always had a smile and I loved his different color contacts. He will be missed by his Kroger family. Prayers to his family and friends who I know are really hurting right now.

  • Our thoughts and prayers our with ALL the family in this difficult time.
    Jackie and Isiah my heart is breaking for you both.
    Wyatt and Justin became pretty good friends. Would pick and fight at each other in elementary. To tolerating their ornery selves, to becoming what Justin would call his brother.
    Wyatt would stop by. Always pleasant, polite and the most adorable smile. We be greatly missed!!
    Justin just last night was talking about thier “almost” matching trucks. And how they were planning on taking them to Pacemakers (dragstrip) and running them together.
    He will still finish that truck. He will take that ride. And when he does, he’ll see you by his side.
    Rest Easy, Wyatt.

  • Where do I start, you were such an amazing person. You looked at my car when it over heated, you listened to me vent. What else could you expect from a good friend. I’m absolutely devastated, I’m so glad I had the honor to be your friend. 😔

  • my heart goes out to you for your loss. I dont know you or your family but this caught my heart. may the Lord bring comfort and peace where there is none. May the Lord make his presence known as you remember your son. Praying for you

  • Billie & Family
    So sorry for this awful tragedy, there are no words to make it better, just want you to know I am praying for all of you. My heart hurts for all of you and you are all in my thoughts. Love Aunt Gay

  • To Wyatt’s family : words do nothing to express the pain and sorrow. I wasn’t very close to Wyatt, but we worked at the same store and on occasion talked about random stuff and made fun of the old me TV show playing in the break room. He always worked hard but also liked to have fun at work and joke around. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Should you folks need anything, your Kroger family has you back. May he rest peacefully.

  • Gator & Jackie,
    Wyatt was a bright light in this world with a personality that made so many smile. Instead of sharing stories of him like when his silly 12 year old self took off his shirt and started dancing all over my living room which lead into hours of music and a dance party with the kids. I’m going to remind you that Wyatt loved you both so very much and him leaving this world does not change that. You were great parents to him. His time was just up and you couldn’t change it.
    Job 14:5
    Since his days have been determined, the number of his months is known to you. You’ve set his limit and he cannot exceed it.
    This verse tells us that God has determined when we will leave this world before we are born and that we can not exceed it.
    So, please try your best not to what if and try your best not to place blame because God alone took Wyatt from this world. The manner in which it happened is truly the hardest for those left behind as you both know. If you need to talk with someone who knows how that feels please reach out. My heart breaks for you.
    Big Hugs, many prayers, and much love.
    -Amanda & family
