NATHAN MARTIN JORDAN
Nathan was born on Easter Sunday, April 4, 1926 in Macwahoc, the son of Fay and Pauline (Ames) Jordan. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 54 years, Betty, and his sister, Jeanette A. Harding.
He is survived by his daughter Paula Brown and her husband Joel of Abbot; his beloved grandsons, Adam Whitney Brown of Abbot and Jason Martin Brown and his wife Jessica and their son Jordan Riley Brown – Nathan’s much cherished great-grandson. Nathan will also be missed by his sister-in-law, Ruth French of Dover-Foxcroft, and his friend of many years, James F. Brown of Abbot.
Nathan attended Lee Academy. He served in the Army during World War II as a Sgt. In the 2nd Armored Division, serving as an instructor at bases in South Carolina and Texas. Upon returning from the service, he met and married his wife, Betty. He worked in a local woolen mill, at Faye Scott in Dexter, and finally as a machinist at Numberall in Sangerville where he enjoyed the comradeship of his friends and co-workers “The Numberall Nummies”.
Nathan was a Mason for more than 50 years. He was known for his love of a good book, a good story, and his ability and willingness to use his mechanical ability to “fix” anything. He never failed to help any neighbor, friend or family member with advice or pitching in to help. He was a model railroader through and through. He spent many hours with his wife Betty making their house a real home.
Nathan loved and cherished his family, especially his grandsons and his much anticipated great-grandson, with whom he spent many hours of happy times. He loved them with hugs, stories, advice, and always a sense of humor.
At Nathan’s request, there will be no funeral. There will be a committal service at Pine Grove Cemetery in Dover-Foxcroft on Monday, October 29, 2007 at 11 AM with Pastor Ray Beless officiating.
Nate would say: “A New Adventure!”
