Remembering Calvin...

God sends His children here with special tasks to do and calls them home, one by one, when their work is through.

     Calvin Lee Jordan, a son of the late Carl Jordan Sr. and Malvene Sledge Jordan, began his journey through life on Monday, March 30, 1964 in Pendleton, North Carolina.

     Calvin matriculated through the Northampton County Public Schools System, attending Willis Hare Elementary School, Conway Middle School and ultimately graduating from Northampton County High School. While in high school, Calvin was an avid sportsman - playing basketball, football and tennis. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army and began his career as a member of the Military Intelligence Corp. Upon leaving active duty, Calvin became gainfully employed with Allied Security, where he worked for the past 29 years. He was currently attending American InterContinental University of Houston, where he was on the Dean’s list. Calvin also received the President’s Academic Excellence Award, for maintaining a GPA of 4.0.

     Calvin believed in God; the Father Almighty, who created heaven and earth. He possessed strong faith in Christ and did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, always acknowledging his presence. Having God as an integral part of his upbringing, Calvin accepted Christ and united in Christian Fellowship with Jordan Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, where his spiritual gifts were nurtured and love for God deepened. He not only attended faithfully, but served as a member of the Trustee Ministry.

     Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. (Viktor E. Frankl) As a beloved father, brother and US Army Veteran, who loved his family; Calvin also enjoyed bowling, with members of the Jordan Grove MBC League; biking; traveling; playing basketball and racquetball. His life, love and laughter will long be remembered by all those, whose lives he touched.

     Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be, A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay… Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know. For some the journey is quicker, For some the journey’s slow. And when the journey finally ends, We’ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord. On Friday, May 14, 2021; while in the care of Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Medical Center of Houston, Texas, our beloved Calvin Lee Jordan, peacefully entered into eternal rest. In addition to his parents, Carl Sr. and Malvene; he was preceded in death by: a brother, Carl Jordan, Jr. and a sister, Doris Louise Jordan.

     Our family is a circle of strength and love; with every birth and every union, the circle of love grows - every trial faced together makes the circle grow stronger. We who remain struck by the bitter pain of death, but are assured by the promise of God; that He would wipe all tears from our eyes: his daughter, Emily D. McGowan of Lynnwood, Washington; his siblings, Carolyn (Mailon) Daye of Conway, North Carolina, Vivian (Jessie) Powell of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, Dr. Charles (Katie) Jordan of Wake Forest, North Carolina, Mildred (Boris, Sr.) Stubbs, of Prince George, Virginia; Ester (Charles) Harper of Henrico, Virginia and Thornton Jordan of Houston, Texas, a host of beloved nieces, nephews, relatives, friends and coworkers.
