Kenneth Ray Jordan

Kenneth Ray Jordan passed away peacefully at his home on December 28, 2015, in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the age of 69. Ken is survived by his wife Carolyn; his two children, Charles Adam Jordan and his wife, Carolina, and Andrea Jordan DeVoe and her husband, Joe DeVoe and their daughter Lilly DeVoe; a sister, Gale Hancock and her husband, Tony Hancock; a niece Michelle Drye, and her husband Randy Drye, and daughters Samantha Drye and Kristen Drye; and nephews Tony Lee Hancock and Clinton Hancock. Ken was born on April 30, 1946 in Monroe, North Carolina to Lillie Mae and Charles W. Jordan. He graduated from A.L. Brown in 1964. After graduating high school Ken served 4 honorable years in the United States Air Force. He married Carolyn Evans, his self-admitted better half on August 28th 1976. Their marriage was blessed by the birth of their two children; Adam in 1981, and Andrea in 1983. His dedication and love for his family was only rivaled by his love for his Lord. Ken's faith in Christ provided him in the comfort that this life was just the beginning of a longer journey. He was an active and dedicated member of Cornerstone Baptist Church and sincerely enjoyed ringing bells with his fellow Humdinger Ringers. Ken had a sparkle in his eyes and a kindness in his heart that helped him make everyone he met feel special. His was truly a life defined by love. One only needed to meet him to love him. In this time of grief he would say to you these simple words, "If you can only remember me in sadness and tears, then don't remember me at all." It is in that spirit that we will be gathering for a memorial service at Cornerstone Baptist Church (8947 Albemarle Road Charlotte, NC, 28227) on Saturday, January 2nd, 2015. A reception will follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Ken's life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region at 1420 E 7th St, Charlotte, NC 28204. The family would like to thank the numerous individuals that sent their well wishes and prayers to Ken during his time of need. He appreciated your thoughts and felt your love. - -
