Steven Jordan

Be a thinker and not a stinker; hard to soar like an eagle when you hang out with turkeys. Just some of Steve’s fatherly words of wisdom. No secret that he loved barbecue; when the grill came out he did a happy dance. He loved concerts and got to take his kids to see the Steve Miller Band when they got old enough. When he was at Kingsway he was a dominant basketball player and never lost his love for the game; he and Jason spent many an hour shooting baskets. He rooted for all the Philly teams and went out of his way to get there early just to get face time with the players for his son; WIP was on non stop in his shed. And his daughter helped him with his football pools: he tolerated that she chose teams by their colors. They did many a daytrip to the Chesapeake for Crabbing and spent many an evening angling for blues. He’d try anything once: snorkeling, white water rafting, and cruises to just about anywhere. Of course his favorite cruise was Bermuda: even topped Hawaii.

He’d meet a pretty waitress at Uncle Bill’s restaurant: he and Laura shared an 18 year marriage. He was blessed by children: Jennifer (C.J.) Reynolds and Jason (Nicole); and was survived by his mother, Ruth Jordan, his sister, Barbara Ragonese and grandchildren, Jacinda and Jayla Jordan and Brody and Marley Reynolds and many nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his father, William Jordan; his nephew, Gregory Ragonese and brother-in-law, Jim Ragonese.

Come celebrate 62 great years Saturday, July 13 from 10 a.m at New Beginnings Church, 401 Billings Ave, Paulsboro 08066 where there will be an 11 a.m. service.

Contributions to New Beginnings Church, 401 Billings Ave, Paulsboro 08066 will be appreciated.

    Steve, you are at rest now with the Lord. We will miss you in many ways. It was very evident the lives you have touched when you were here on this earth tonight. Your love of life will continue with your children and grandchildren. Our sister will never be the same. She will always love you with her whole heart.

    My deepest sympathy to Laura, family & friends. Steve will be greatly missed. I simply loved his warm heart, his laughter and how special he made all of us feel. Whenever you saw Steve, he would welcome you with a big hug and a bigger smile. Our church will miss Steve more than words can say. I will miss sitting next to him. And Laura, I’ll be sitting right there next to you always.

    Steve always greeted me every Sunday with a big smile, a huge hug and something to make me smile or laugh. He showed me how Christians show love. I will so miss him. Steve and Laura are like my family and we love them very much. I am heartbroken but I know he is in Jesus arms and I will see him later. And he will give me that big smile, hug, and make me laugh. LOVE YOU Steve

  6. Diane Carter says:

    From the time I moved to NJ to live with my new husband Mark Carter, Steve and Laura were 2 of the most welcoming people at New Beginnings. I was so blessed to see how very much Steve loved and looked after Laura and could absolutely feel the love of the Lord from them. Steve, you were a wonderful blessing to know. We will see you there and Praise and Worship our Lord. My prayers are with Laura and your family.

  7. David Stanton says:

    Steve will be dearly missed. Always enjoyed sharing stories and laughs at family gatherings. I am shocked and saddened but accepting that he is in heaven, in peace.

  8. Christine says:

    I have listened to the voicemail you left me just hours before you left this earth about a dozen times. I miss you and love you. You were my playmate, my confidante, my uncle and you can never be replaced. Until we meet again some day in Heaven I will think of you fondly.

  9. Dana Craft says:

    I was terribly saddened to hear of your passing, but I know you are cheering on your Philly teams up in heaven. You will truly be missed. Love you!
    Love your Danish

    Uncle Steve, you will be missed. Your laugh was contagious and your love for our God was unwavering. Rest In Peace!
    Noelle, Greg, Alanah & Aidan

  12. Sharon J. Jones says:

    Steve’s love of life and of the Lord were contagious. He always had a big smile for everyone. I know I will see him again but in the meantime, I’m really going to miss that smile and jovial laugh. I pray for peace for Laura, his family and friends. As in Philippians 4:7, the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ. My prayers continue to be with Laura and the family.
