Robert L. Jordan Sr. ENFIELD — Robert L. Jordan Sr. of Enfield passed away on Jan. 10, 2020, at age 92. Robert, known mostly as Bob and by some as Yogi, was the son of Christopher and Dorothy Jordan of Etna. He was predeceased by all of his siblings. Bob was a man with a playful spirit and a great sense of humor. He was a gentle and humble soul. Bob started as an iceman, delivering blocks of ice door to door back in the mid-1940s. During this time, he met his future wife, Annette Audette, who took great pride in picking on this bashful man with all her girlfriends. It was love at first sight and a marriage that spanned over 69 years. Annette and Robert had children, Robert, Richard, Roy, Rip, Robin and Roberta. He was grandfather of nine and great-grandfather to 13. Bob was a man who loved to make people laugh. He was a self-taught musician and a character to the end. Bob was proud of his service as Technical Corporal in the U.S. Army during World War II. He spent most of his career as a truck driver, culminating with helping the construction of the Seabrook Nuclear Plant. In retirement, Bob looked forward to his daily jaunts for coffee and snacks with his best friend, Raymo Berube, watching Westerns and camping with Annette. As you reminisce, remember him as he was at his most playful moments. His kind heart and sense of humor will forever be his legacy. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the Hanover Terrace staff for their kindness and care, and to volunteer Sheila for the friendship and support she showed us all. Family and friends are invited to Ricker Funeral Home in Lebanon on Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 12 to 1 p.m. for Bob’s calling hour. Beginning at 1 p.m. will be Bob’s memorial service with a reception to follow. No date has been set for spring burial and military honors. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to Hanover Terrace, c/o Keriann Coutu, 49 Lyme Road, Hanover, NH 03755, for the Memorial Garden Fund. Dad thoroughly enjoyed his time in their courtyard. An online guest book is available to leave a message of condolence for Bob’s family by visiting www.rickerfuneralhome.com.
