Jordan E. Hudson, 85, Roann, Indiana, passed away January 8, 2021 at Majestic Care of West Allen, Fort Wayne, Indiana. One of four children, Jordan was born May 5, 1935 in Denver, Indiana, to the late Homer F. and Helen E. (Baker) Hudson.
On August 2, 1953 Jordan married Elda Ann Day. The two were wed for sixty-five years before Elda passed away on February 12, 2019. During their wonderful time together, Jordan supported his family by working for Peabody Seating Company, North Manchester, Indiana, for thirty-six years, Cyclone Manufacturing Company, Urbana, Indiana, for five years, and later retired from Strauss Inc, North Manchester. After working during the day, Jordan came home and farmed. Later in life he also helped his son on the farm. He wasn’t a man who shied away from hard work, and he truly enjoyed the simple life. Jordan always found time for his children, whether he was supporting them, playing sports with them or spending quality time with them. He enjoyed relaxing by watching and listening to the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears.
