Family and friends gather for the Celebration of Life for Clayton Jordan


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Early Saturday morning, the Providence Christian family came together for a heartfelt celebration of life for Clay Jordan who passed away a little over a week ago.

Jordan was known for being a tennis instructor, P.E. Teacher, junior high basketball coach, bus driver, and scorekeeper. He loved sports and working with young people.

At the service, family members and friends shared kind words and told funny stories about Mr. Jordan. They also listened to Jordan’s favorite songs with a balloon release following to close the ceremony.

His son, Clay Jordan III, says through the 69 years of life his father experienced he’s taught him some valuable lessons that will last forever.

“Dad was a kind man. A man of humor and fun and served his life through Christ in a nonchalant way. The most valuable lesson I would say is just being a good human treating all mankind with respect, dignity, and love and just making sure you can uphold a reputation that embodies all of those traits,” Jordan III said.

Jordan says he wants to thank the Providence Eagles family for coming out to support his father by sending him off in the proper fashion he deserves.
