1959 – 2016

LIVERMORE FALLS — Brian L. Jordan, 56, of Livermore Falls lost his long battle with leukemia on Monday, Jan. 18, with his wife, Jill, by his side.

Brian was born Sept. 4, 1959, in Rumford. He was a 1978 graduate of Jay High School and attended University of Maine at Farmington. He worked at Bass Shoe before starting his own business, “Ace Framing,” which he ran until the day of his diagnosis on March 16, 2011. He had been on the planning board for the town of Livermore Falls, and was chairman of the Apple Pumpkin Festival.

He loved listening to and creating music, and was an avid musician who played in bands for more than 30 years. He also had a recording studio for several years, producing and engineering multiple CDs. He was a passionate sports fan and loved being a Patriots season ticket holder. When he became too ill to attend, he continued his love from the comfort of his own home. He shared an equal passion for train-modeling and would spend countless hours meticulously recreating miniature towns. He enjoyed golfing, astronomy and photography, and put his photography skills to use for the Livermore Falls Advertiser, later taking pictures of his trains.

He is survived by his wife, Jill Jordan, of Livermore Falls; daughter, Marley Stevens and her spouse, Victoria, of Jay; son, Cameron Curtiss of Keene, N.H.; parents, Ruby and Webster Jordan of Jay; sisters, Gayle Newkirk and husband, James, of Georgetown, Texas, Janet Benedetto of Jay, Terri Letourneau and husband, Mark, of Jay, Coleen Callagy and husband, Dennis, of Lake Fort, Fla.; brother, Robert Jordan and wife, Robin, of Raymond; mother-in-law, Nancy Purinton of Livermore Falls; father-in-law, Alan Stevens and wife, Vicki,

of Starks; brother-in-law, Guy Stevens and wife, Paula, of Stratton; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He is predeceased by his twin brother, Bruce C. Jordan, who lost his battle with the same devastating illness on Oct. 12, 1976. Brian was the older twin by 20 minutes.

Brian’s wife and caregiver would like to acknowledge all the help and support from the oncology departments at CMMC and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and also to our family and friends who were there when it mattered most.
