Following his education, he took over the family farm northeast of Tioga, ND. In 1972, he built and established the Fossaa Certified Seed Cleaning Plant. On October 27, 1973, Ordean married Nancy Folden of San Jose, CA.

Over the years, Ordean was on numerous township, county and state boards and committees with the goal of improving the quality of seed durum and the standard by which it is grown, processed and sold. He received many awards and recognition for his work in agriculture.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy, Tioga, ND; son, Marc, Fargo, ND; sister Jewel (Gerald) Dahl, Felton, MN; many nieces and nephews. Ordean was preceded in death by his parents, Ole and Haldis.
