HARRELLSVILLE – Louis Henry Jordan of 1721 Swains Mill Road, Harrellsville, died on Friday, October 17, 2014 at the age of 94.

Louis was born August 15, 1920 to the late Flora Mae Lewis and Richard Whitfield Jordan.  They lived in the Polly Watson Crossroads area of Wayne County.  He was the tenth child in a family of fourteen and served in the Army during WWII along with four of his brothers.

Louis married the late Mildred Collier Jordan in 1942.  The couple had ten children: Louis Wayne Jordan (deceased), Judy J. Upson of Michigan, Kenneth Harold Jordan of Harrellsville, twins Lois J.

Jordan of Tarboro.

Louis was a farmer by trade, but his passions were raising hound dogs and hunting with them.  Over the years he traveled to many states to hunt and was known to others in the sport as “one of the best”.

Louis is survived by eight children, one sister, Elizabeth Jordan Gay of Walstonburg, fourteen grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.
