Donald Lewis Jordan

November 11, 1964 ~ June 14, 2019 (age 54)

Donald Lewis Jordan


was born November 11, 1964 in Fort Wayne, Indiana to mother, Alberta L. Jordan. His father, Robert L. Jordan and his sister, Carolyn L. Stewart who also received her wings on June 14, 2006 both preceded him in death.


Donald   attended R. Nelson Snider High School in Fort Wayne.


Donald accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior early in life. He was baptized.    He was an active member of Greater Progressive Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Anthony R. Pettus, Sr.  He had a quest for knowledge that kept him grounded in his faith. He attended service regularly until his mother’s health declined; along with his own.  The entire family will be forever grateful to Donald for being his mother’s primary caregiver up to the day he left this side of life.


Donald loved to cook and was considered the family personal chef.  He would not share his secret ingredients that made his food “off the chain.” Whatever he cooked, you didn’t have to worry about left-overs… HA!!!   Because he ate’em.


Donald had a servants’ heart. You could always find him being the eastside community neighborhood’s fix-it man. Man, if we didn’t know any better you’d a thought he received his degree in electrical, plumbing and automotive. He was always looking out for his neighborhood.


Donald always had a smile that was contagious! You could also catch him dressed down in his Colts t-shirt wishing he could be at the football game trying to talk smack. Yes, he loved his sports. But, most importantly, he enjoyed and loved being around his family. 


Early Friday afternoon on June 14th, Donald, transitioned into glory and “received his wings.” He is survived by his beloved mother,  Alberta L. Jordan; daughters, DeMetra L. Jordan of Garland, Texas, Marquita (Travis) Lockett-Wigfall of Newport News, Virginia; grand-children, Paishynce Lockett and Kylan Lockett of Newport News, Virginia and DiMitri Jordan of Garland, Texas; siblings, Willie Bunch, Larry (Lesia) Jordan, LaWanda    Diane (Wilbur) Vandall all of Fort Wayne; Lorrenda M. Jordan of Malvern, Arkansas, Stephanie L. Scott of Chattanooga, Tennessee; special friend, Betty Wallace of Fort Wayne, Indiana and a host of extended family and friends.


Donald will be laid to rest in Highland Park Cemetery
