Jim Jordan was born in Chadron, Nebraska June 2, 1959, to Bob and Deene (Preble) Jordan of Harrison, NE. He was their 4th child. He attended school in Sioux County. He met the love of his life, Sheri & they married on Oct. 30, 1978. They first made their home in Glenrock before moving to Douglas and then Lusk.
Always an independent & free spirit, Jim walked his own path. He started Jordan Auto in 1985. He served the community of Lusk as a mechanic and as a tow truck driver. Jim’s big heart also allowed him to assist stranded travelers on Wyoming’s long, less-traveled highways. Jim liked to share his hearty laugh with family, friends, and strangers alike.
He got his love of cars and mechanics from his grandfather. Jim learned much while working alongside him, keeping the 1930s car sweeps running for the hay season. He loved fast cars and shooting sports.
Jim and Sheri had 2 daughters: Crystal and Tonya. Both girls went through school in Lusk. Sadly, Tonya lost her life in 2005 in an automobile accident. He is survived by his loving wife, Sheri, daughter Crystal (Rick) Zerbe & a very special grandson, Liam who was his pride & joy. He was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws, his daughter, and his brother Steve.
