Mark Steven Jordan was born January 9, 1957 in St. Cloud, Minnesota to Arlo and Lillian (Olson) Jordan, the youngest of seven children. Mark grew up in Annandale, where he attended school and graduated with the Class of 1975. He then furthered his education with a trade's degree. Mark entered the construction world, working for Northland Construction for 11 years, while still providing taxidermy services. He then worked for Miller Barn Straightening before owning and operating Jordan's Bait. For the past 10+ years, Mark has been working for Malco as a press operator. On September 13, 2008, Mark was united in marriage to Carol R. (McKeown) Pramann at Zion United Methodist Church in South Haven. Mark was a member of the Minnesota Walleye Trail and AIM Walleye series. As an avid outdoorsman, Mark liked to spend his free time outdoors. He could often be found hunting, fishing, golfing, bowling, and simply driving around taking in the beauty of his surroundings. His spontaneous and adventurous personality would show through with his random trips to the casino, busting a move on the dance floor, or singing karaoke. Above all, Mark treasured the time he was able to spend with his family, especially with his children and adoring grandchildren.
Mark is survived by his wife, Carol of South Haven; children, Meggan (John) Caird of South Haven, Jessica (Jerry) Jarvis of Watkins, and Mitchell (Janell) Jordan of Clearwater; step-children, Mandy (Scott) Berscheid of Big Lake, Cassy (JR) McGuire of Big Lake, and Christopher (Kendall) Pramann of Robbinsdale; 7 grandchildren, Emma, Ainsley, Tristan, Jaxon, Charlotte, Lillian, and Lawson; siblings, Ione Latour of Annandale, Shirley (Jim) Bauer of Annandale, Carole Miller of St. Cloud, Jean (Jim) Ledwein of Annandale, Robert Jordan of Carver, and Mary (Harlan) Ball of Annandale; and many nieces, nephews, other family members, colleagues, and dear friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arlo and Lillian; and brothers-in-law, Butch Latour and Jerry Miller.
Mark's six sons will serve as urn bearers. Orma Lou Jacobsma will provide music for the service.
