Jordan Jr., Charles "Lee"

April 4, 1968 - October 30, 2016

Charles Lee Jordan Jr., 48, of Dallas, Texas, passed away on Sunday, October 30, 2016. Lee was born in Odessa, Texas to Charles Lee Jordan Sr. and Gettone Moore Jordan on April 04, 1968. He graduated from Odessa High School and attended Odessa College. Lee was a gifted drummer and talented musician who created music with several bands.  Later, he worked for nearly 10 years as a cylinder technician and machinist at Brake Supply in the DFW metroplex. Lee was an avid reader, consuming several books each week; he was intelligent and well-versed, with a quick wit second to none.   He was kind, caring and deeply loyal. A proud firearms collector, Lee appreciated time spent in fellowship with his friends and family.  Lee’s opponents in pool, poker and most every other game almost always found they fell quickly in loss, having underestimated the good-natured giant; their defeat met with his sly grin.

Charles Lee Jordan Jr. is preceded in death by his parents, his uncle Donald Moore, aunt Sandra Moore, and uncle Jack Black . He is survived by his sister Becky Rey, brother-in-law Louie Rey, nieces Chloe, Zoe and Ruby, his aunts and uncles Phillip and Theresa Day, Gail Day, Jeannie Black and Leonard and Lela Moore, his dearest friends Carlton and Julie Chapman, and his beloved cat Little Boy.

So sorry to hear this! I knew him mostly when we were kids. Hoping he has a big family reunion with those who have gone on before us. Rest in peace.

Martha McDougle says:

Lee was very special. I knew him shortly but loved him truly. There will never be another man like him. He was smart…sweet…and forever loyal. I know I will see him again in heaven. He’s no longer suffering.

Danielle Hogan says:

Lee was our brother…no other description fits. Playing in Blue Zone & Cheshire Cat with him was the time of our lives & a gift beyond compare. I had been talking with him everyday for hours at a time until mere days before he passed. He, Dave & I were dreaming of playing together again when he got well. We loved each other very much. He told me that he missed me, Dave, Dillon & Daniel very much. He taught Daniel how to play the drums with such patience & glee. He got to see Daniel play live in San Antonio a few years ago & was overcome with emotion when Daniel told the audience that his idol was in the audience…his “Uncle Bud”. They loved him very much & are devastated…as are we. He told me that I was his best friend & that he was thankful for me….I was thankful for him! I will miss him so badly that it is a physical pain. No one on this earth will ever compare. Love you Bubba……hold our place in Heaven. Can’t wait to play with you again when we get there!! Becky, he sure loved you & those little baby girls. Please call Dave & I ….our number is on his phone….God Bless you & your family.

I will miss the sneaky grin.
You will be missed by many.
Heaven has gained a great drummer.

Michael Greathouse says:

Lee was a very close friend and a big brother to me. I started playing in bands with him when I was fresh out of high school and he always watched out for me and took care of me, showed me the “ropes” on the road. Lee was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, and I am definitely a better person for having known and spent time with him. I love you Lee
