Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Ace Raymond Jordan, age 73, passed away on February 13, 2019 after a 6-year long battle with cancer. He defied the odds and lived 5 ½ years longer than he was given, which is important, because he was known to take his time! Ace was born May 2, 1945 to James Neal Jordan and Velma Ruth Gutowsky, in Phoenix, AZ, into a family with 2 bothers and 1 sister. The family moved to Oklahoma shortly after his birth.
As a young man, Ace proudly served in the US Navy for 4 years during the Vietnam War. He was able to travel the world and one of his best memories was being blessed by the Pope in Rome. A few of his favorite activities included cooking BBQ, spending time on any lake in Oklahoma, watching hot air balloons, and taking care of the neighborhood stray cats!
Ace was preceded in death by his parents, James Neal Jordan and Velma Ruth Gutowsky, step-dad Joe Dodge, his brother Neal Jordan, sister in law Nancy Jordan, sister Janet Jordan, his cousin Carol Hart, and granddaughter Sonyja Paidge Mars.
Ace is survived by his brother Barry Jordan, sister in law Terri Jordan, daughter Julie Scott, son-in-law Jason Scott, son Wesley Jordan, daughter-in-law Carrie Jordan, girlfriend Rachelle Harms, nieces and nephews Justin and Tammy Jordan, Jenny and Mike Matthews, Gwyn Crawford, his devoted grandchildren, Ryan McDonald, Taylor McDonald, Christa McDonald, Jace Scott, Jason Isham, Jordan Peay, Ashley Jordan, Jake Jordan, and assorted other family, Kimberly Greene, Megan Jordan, Lindsey Jordan, Ashley Matthews, Brenna Matthews, Claire Matthews, and Elizabeth Compton.
Should friends desire, donations can me made to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society to their Angel Fund in his memory.
A Celebration of Ace’s Life will be held on March 2, 2019 at 2:00pm. 627 Washington Street Piedmont, OK 73078

So sorry to hear about Ace. I used to work with him at the Department of Public Safety over 50 years ago. He always made everyone laugh. He was always joking in a sarcastic way. I’m glad he is no longer in pain. I will be praying for his family. Bobbie Gardner Overstreet
