Obituary of John Alan Jordan
Jordan, John Alan
At home on Friday, April 21st, 2023, John Alan Jordan passed away at the age of 86 years. Alan was the loving husband of 59 years of Audrey (Conroy) Jordan and the cherished father of Jacqueline (Ken Guarisco), Paul (Erin MacDonald) and Jane (Larry Hope). He was the beloved grandfather to Adam and Rachel Guarisco, Silas and Ewan Jordan and Katie and Connor Hope. Alan was the son of John and Mary (Scharf) Jordan. He will be sadly missed by brothers Harold (Emma) and Lloyd (late Barbara) and predeceased by brother Robert (Marilyn) and sister Betty (Arnold) Miller. Alan will be mourned by his sister-in-law Eva (Frank) McLean. He will be dearly missed by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbours and many long-time friends.
Alan owned and operated Jordan's Cottages since 1965 and will be remembered by generations of families who summered at Christie Lake. Families returned year after year not just for the beauty of the lake, but also for Alan's company and hospitality; his presence and hard work made the cottages a warm and familiar place for so many. In the off-season Alan loved to travel with Audrey, exploring new places and never failing to make new friends along the way.
A celebration of Alan's life will be held at Christie Lake in the summer. In remembrance of him donations in his name can be made to Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation - Perth Site, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Arrangements are in the care of Blair and Son Funeral Home, Perth.
