Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

Earl went to join his son, Dustin, to be with God on April 22, 2016. He was born December 22, 1948, in Holbrook, AZ, to Earl Wesley Jordan, Sr. and Helen Dowell Jordan.

On May 1, 1970, he married Carol (Wilt) Jordan in Las Cruces, NM. Besides his son, he is preceded in death by his parents, 4 brothers, and 1 sister.

He is survived by his wife of San Angelo, his son, Knoal, daughter-in-law, Amy of San Angelo and 5 grandchildren. Those are Mackenzie and Bryzon of Castroville, TX, Caleb of San Angelo, and Dustin and Hannah of Grape Creek, TX.

He is also survived by his sisters, Helen Pineda and Carolyn Provost of San Angelo, Dana Cryer of Dallas, TX, Diane Conrad of Idaho, and one brother, Ricky Jordan of Brainard, MN. He has too many special friends to list here that he calls family, not by blood, but by love.

Earl grew up at Cal Farley's Boys Ranch near Amarillo, TX, and had been active in the alumni association there. He was especially proud of the fact that his picture with Cal Farley became the symbol of the ranch and a statue based on that picture was erected on ranch grounds atop Mr. and Mrs. Farley's graves. He looked forward each Labor Day weekend to the annual rodeo and alumni reunion at the ranch.

It was at Cal Farley's Ranch that he learned to operate construction equipment. He spent two years in Vietnam as an equipment operator with the U.S. Army helping build runways in the jungles and swamps. He operated cranes for 45 years from one end of the country to the other to provide for his family. He retired to San Angelo from Phoenix, AZ, in 2012, so he could enjoy his retirement near his children and grandchildren.

He became quite active in the St. Paul Presbyterian Church where he was a session member. He had a passion for kids and people in need. He started a food pantry at the church and kept it stocked. he jumped in with both feet to help with the annual Christmas Box food drive. He pulled the Christmas float and Parade of Lights float in the downtown parades. At church he was known to the kids as the "Candy Man" as he always gave out candy in exchange for a hug.

He was assistant chef to his son Knoal at BBQ competitions in the area. He was always helping someone in need, whether it be a few extra bucks, a ride, a shoulder, or a temporary crash pad. His wife never knew who might be in the extra bedroom or the couch on any given day. His daily routine included coffee and a game of dominoes at the donut shop with good friends.

Funeral arrangements are through Gutierrez Funeral Home. There will be services at St. Paul Presbyterian Church, 11 N. Park St., San Angelo, TX, on Tuesday, at 11:00 A.M. followed by a luncheon at the church. All are welcome to attend. There will be visitation on Monday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 at the Funeral Home located at 1002 N. Oakes St., San Angelo, TX, 76903, (325) 658-5995.

His ashes will be taken at a later date to be interred at the Boys Ranch Cemetery in Amarillo, TX, beside his son. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to St. Paul Presbyterian Church, or Cal Farley's Alumni Association. Checks can be made out to: CFBRAA, PO Box 9435, Amarillo, TX, 79105.
