Edward L. Jordan Jr.
Private graveside services were held at Lakewood Memorial Park for Edward L. Jordan Jr., 73, of Ceres. He died Oct. 10, 2007 at Memorial Medical Center in Modesto.

Born Aug. 12, 1934, Mr. Jordan was a native of Placerville and was raised in Cool. When he lived in the high desert community of Megee Creek, Ed got to meet Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers who were filming a movie and staying at his grandparents' lodge. He told stories of taking them fishing and said Rogers' horse Trigger was the most beautiful horse he'd ever seen.

When he was seven years old he lived in Hawaii with his parents, leaving with his mother a week prior to the bombing of Pearl Habor. They heard the news from Sausalito where they lived.

Mr. Jordan was the maintenance supervisor at the Kraft Foods/CVC plant outside Ceres for over 40 years. He enjoyed racing cars and motorcycles and was capable of building most anything. Ed loved camping, fishing, NASCAR races, cooking and his little dog, Lacy.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 24 years, Mary Jordan of Ceres; his step-daughter, Alicia Brennecke of Ceres; his step-son, Eric Clark of Modesto; and two step-grandchildren, Wade Brennecke and Joshua Brennecke; and one brother, Virgil Small of Manteca.
