DURHAM — Richard London Jordan, 67, of Durham, and Melbourne Beach, Fla., passed away on Friday, June 10, 2016, at Bodwell House in Brunswick after a battle with cancer.

Richard was born in Portland on Nov. 18, 1948, to parents Preston London Jordan and Marcia Florence (DeLinden) Jordan.

Rick was a 1968 graduate of Kents Hill School, where he was a three-sport athlete and was awarded the MVP in soccer. He also attended Nasson College.

He was a longtime registered Maine Guide. He enjoyed fly-fishing, golfing, canoeing, swimming, and all water activities, especially exploring the Allagash wilderness many times, beginning in his pre-teen years. He was an avid sports fan at all levels, including as a regular spectator at his niece’s and nephews’ contests. For many years, he thoroughly enjoyed the snowbird lifestyle, spending winters in Florida, summers in Maine, and making lifelong friends in both locations.

Richard worked for many years as a server in restaurants from Maine to Florida. His longest employment was with Royal River Grill House in Yarmouth. He truly enjoyed his work and the repeat clients who appreciated his attentive service and often asked for him by name.

Richard was predeceased by his parents.

He is survived by his son Barton and three granddaughters; sisters, Judith Hennemann of Sandown, N.H., Susan Biggs of Harrison and Pamela Hanson of Bowdoinham; brother, Dean of Bath; stepmother, Mary Bird of North Yarmouth and Gainesville, Fla.; and numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.
