Harweda Bruce (Jordan) Jordan

November 7, 1947 ~ November 25, 2018 (age 71)
Harweda Bruce Jordan, 71, was born in Lubbock, Texas, on Friday, November 7, 1947. He left this
earth on Saturday, November 25, 2018, peacefully, in his sleep, in Tuscola, Texas.
Harweda was raised on a farm in Ropesville, Texas, graduated from Abilene High School, and
answered a call to the ministry in 1965 when he joined Whitey Gleason and the Jubilee Quartet.
He traveled with the quartet for 5 years when he felt called to branch out on his own in
ministry. His brother, Jerry and his wife Marilyn, joined Harweda in ministry, and together,
they became the Jordan Evangelistic Association when Harweda married Colleen Roach in 1971.
Together, they traveled the continental United States sharing their testimonies of the healing
and saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Harweda also lived in Taos, NM, and brought his talent as a promising artist to light. He was in
the Abilene area working on plans to launch his website and introduce his art to the world
when God called him away. He is survived by his sons Dominic and Peter Jordan – Peter’s wife,
Rebekah, and grandchildren, Genesis, Azariah, Zion, Zaran, and his daughter-in-law, Devon
Craddock and grandson, True Jordan. He is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law Jerry
and Marilyn Jordan, and nieces, Nicole and J’Brenta, and by “the love of his life,” Shannon
Colleen, and mother-in-law, Scotti Burns. Preceding him in death are his father and mother,
Clarence and Melba Jordan, and his sons Simon Dimitri and Sabian Giovanni (True’s daddy). We
can only imagine the homecoming he had!
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Harweda. He had such closeness with his Lord
and Savior, Jesus Christ. He talked with such passion about God’s love and about the revelation
he was experiencing on his journey. His dedication to God and family was the motivating factor
in his life.
Two services will be held for Harweda: Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 3:00 p.m. in Tuscola,
TX, at the Tuscola Baptist Church, and Thursday evening, November 29, 2018, at Paseo Church in El
Paso, TX at 6 p.m.
Interment will follow in Santa Teresa, NM, at Memorial Gardens, on Friday morning at 9:30 a.m.
