MY COUSIN by marriage - 2nd marriage, married my cousin Hope Haskins

James DOUGLAS Ernest Jordan passed away peacefully in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital the morning of Wednesday, August 15th at the age of 96. He was born in Manchester, England on July 20, 1916, emigrated to Canada in 1956 and settled in Nanaimo a year later, where he lived ever since.

Doug was predeceased by his parents, his brothers and sisters, his first wife, Joan and his youngest son, Andrew but is survived by many, including his second wife, Hope; his son, Robert (Ruth) and his daughters, Catherine (Ray) and Patricia. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Shawn, Paul (Heather), Leila (Lincoln), Angus and Karelia as well as his great-grandchildren Jarrod, Joseph, Justin, Wyatt, Lily and Miles. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by family and friends the world over.

The family extends deepest thanks to Doctors John Carr and Sarah Lord as well as the wonderful nursing staff at NRGH, who attended to him with devotion and a professionalism that went well beyond the call of duty.

There will be a Celebration of Life Ceremony in Room #1 at the Bowen Park Complex from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on Sunday, September 23, 2012 the same place his 90th birthday celebrations were held six years ago.


He was cremated and his ashes are in the care of his daughter, Patricia Jordan. Some have been scattered in the Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens in the area where those of his first wife, Joan, were scattered nearly 40 years previously. Some were scattered under the old Arbutus tree on the south side of the old Wellington Cemetery at the corner of Ledgerwood and Cardena Roads in north Nanaimo. Others will be scattered when other members of the family are in town to participate.

Robert Jordan (Doug's son).
