Richard L. Jordan

Date of Death: June 10, 2016

Date of Birth: November 18, 1948


DURHAM - Richard London Jordan, age 67, of Durham, Maine and Melbourne Beach, Florida, passed away on June 10, 2016 at Bodwell House in Brunswick after a battle with cancer.

Richard was born in Portland on November 18, 1948 to parents Preston London Jordan and Marcia Florence (DeLinden) Jordan.

Rick was a 1968 graduate of Kents Hill School, where he was a three sport athlete and was awarded the MVP in soccer. He also attended Nasson College. He was a long-time registered Maine Guide.

He enjoyed fly-fishing, golfing, canoeing, swimming, and all water activities - especially exploring the Allagash wilderness many times, beginning in his pre-teen years. He was an avid sports fan at all levels, including as a regular spectator at his niece's and nephews' contests. For many years, he thoroughly enjoyed the snowbird lifestyle - spending winters in Florida, summers in Maine, and making life-long friends in both locations.

Richard worked for many years as a server in restaurants from Maine to Florida. His longest employment was with Royal River Grillhouse in Yarmouth. He truly enjoyed his work and the repeat clients who appreciated his attentive service and often asked for him by name.

Richard was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his son Barton, Barton's wife Natalie, and granddaughters Finley, Augusta, and Dorothy. Also surviving are sisters Judith Hennemann (James), Sandown, NH; Susan Biggs (Douglas), Harrison; Pamela Hanson (Joseph), Bowdoinham; brother Dean, Bath; step-mother Mary Bird of North Yarmouth and Gainesville, Florida; numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews. Rick so much appreciated and enjoyed the support of his close friends Glen Maners, Diedre Ramones, and Yvonne Mikaelian, who were such a comfort to him in his final days.

The family also thanks the staff of Chans Home Health Care, Thornton Hall, and The Bodwell House for their exceptional care during Rick's illness. In lieu of flowers, donations to Chans Home Health Care, 60 Baribeau Drive, Brunswick, ME 04011 are appreciated.

Friends and family are welcome to call at Royal River Grillhouse, 106 Lafayette Street, Yarmouth on Friday, June 24 from 4-6 in the afternoon.
