Louis Jordan

Preacher Louis Jordan

Louis Jordan, better known to family and friends as “Preacher” was born to Bunnie Cummings, and Jessie Jordan on June 12, 1943 in Polk County living in Camden throughout his school years. He passed this life on January 31, 2020. Above all else, “Preacher” loved his family, and was deeply loved in return. He is survived by his beloved children, son, Jimmy Jordan Hill and daughter, Jessica Jordan Hill and her spouse “Jamie” Hill; two surviving sisters, Judy Watts and Linda “Pug” Coulter, and his constant sidekick, cantankerous Isabella. “Preacher” had a host of nieces and nephews that he adored: Sabrina Diehl, Leslie Pursley, Mitzi Beetham, Bruce Joran, Piper Collins, Oliver Watts, Kristie Gilbert, and many great nieces and nephews. “Preacher” was preceded in death by his parents, eldest son, David Lyn Jordan, sisters, Joyce Birdwell, Bobbie and Mary Jordan, and brothers, Bronson and Jimmie Jordan.

“Preacher” was not a worldly person. Until the end, he was like a fish out of water if you forced him to wear anything other than boots and jeans. He didn’t talk about others. Guess that is why he never met someone that could ever forget him. His eyes sparkled and his personality was mesmerizing. He treated others with respect, always had a kind word, and never failed to lend a hand to help. You only had to meet “Preacher” once, and he never forgot your name. Until later years prohibited, there wasn’t much he couldn’t do. His best friend, Johnny, met him each day at the café for breakfast. He lived his life to the fullest. From an early age, he was horseback. He walked, talked and breathed anything that pertained to horses, cows, good dogs, and roping. He had a natural born gift with animals. He was known for how well he trained and treated his horses and stock dogs. He always said, “You don’t need a pack of dogs, just one good one”. His greatest pleasures were spent horseback with one ole, faithful dog alongside. His final year’s brought him back home to his spiritual beliefs. You can be sure heaven has a place for his talents as he rides, whistles, points and shouts on to his dog, Faith…”get ahead”.

Per his request, there will be a cremation and no services at this time.

  4. Preacher,

    We bid you a fond farewell with the greatest of hope that we will meet again up yonder. Rode many a mile with you, penned many cattle and listened to many of your stories.

    This world is a little worse off by having lost you, but heaven gained a saint.

    Until then.

  5. So sorry to hear about “Preacher.” Such a good man. He always had a smile on his face,wearing his jeans and a red bandana tied around his neck. No doubt he is riding one of his favorite horses, “Old Vern”, in heaven. My deepest sympathy to his family. Darla Avery

  6. While I really didn’t know Mr. Jordan personally, I knew him from that restaurant where he met his best friend for breakfast daily. I too meet my best friend there for breakfast every Sunday morning. The many times we went Mr. Jordan was always there, always had a friendly howdy, and that smile on his face. This past Sunday as we met at the restaurant, we noticed that Mr. Jordan was not there and we were advised of what had happened. Sundays wont be the same since the man with the friendly howdy, and warm smile wont be there. My condolences to his family and friends, especially his breakfast buddy.

  8. Preacher was one of a kind. I had the privilege to get know him when I was a little girl. He was always helping out anyone and everyone. Will be truly missed by all. Prayers for all.

  9. So sorry. Preacher was as kind and curious a man that I ever met. His smile was very contentious and warm. You just couldn’t help but be happy when he was around. God’s blessing to his family for their loss.

  22. I hold Preacher dear in my heart, we had been friends for 60 some odd years. Preacher was one of the most happy go lucky people as I have ever been friends with. Preacher would come to my restaurant all the waitress were happy to see him and fight to be the one to serve him, but no matter who got that privilege all the other girls had to go by and get some of his knowledge, he would leave everybody feeling good, but on some visits everybody got a bonus Preacher’s brother Bronson would show up with him, and we wold get a double dose of Jordanism it was a joy to see the boys. both of them will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace my dear friend………………….JS*

  23. R.I.P. Preacher you will be missed

  24. I went by Hilltop this morning for breakfast, knowing that Preacher would not be there. But when I walked in, I looked at his chair that he sat in for years and I missed his friendly smile, his strong handshake, and warm comment “Come sit over here!”. God Bless you, Preacher, because you blessed us.
