Mr. James Clyde “JC” Jordan, 76, of Mocksville, died Thursday, Sept. 7, 2023 at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

He was born on Aug. 29, 1947 in Davie County to the late William Clyde and Dorothy Lee Wooten Jordan. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served during The Vietnam War.

JC was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He had a talent for fixing things, building things, and never backed down from a challenge. Never tell him he couldn’t do something, he’d prove you wrong. He could fix and do anything he set his mind to. The absolute greatest build in his lifetime was the family that he built with his wife Freida. JC and Freida had a limitless, irreplaceable love and bond that was beyond compare. He gifted all his children and grandchildren with love, trust, wit, hard-work, and kindness. He was an excellent example of honesty, trustworthiness, and love to those who met him. He rarely complained and was always the can-do optimist. Even through his illness, he was kind and loving to his nurses, doctors, and caregivers. In his final days, he made sure to let everyone around him know that he loved them. The gifts he taught his family and those around him of his values of love, honesty, humor, trust, and accepting the challenges in front of you will help us all through our life’s journey. He will be so greatly missed but will forever live on in our hearts. We all wish you rest and peace and are thankful for the amazing man you are.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Ann Slater.

Survivors include: his wife of 53 years, Freida Ward Jordan; 2 children, Tracy Jordan (Rita) of Mocksville and Wendy Jones (Michael) of Advance; 4 grandchildren, Keegan Jordan, Evan Jordan (Makenna), Cody Shuffler, and Lance Jones; an honorary grandson, Josh Williams; a sister, Sue Ireland (Wayne) of Mocksville; a brother-in-law, Terry Ward of Mocksville; and nieces, Teree Carr (Jim) of Colorado, Cindy Ciluffo (Scott) of Alabama, and Diane Ireland of Mocksville.
