Joseph Michael Jordan


Joseph Michael Jordan, 66 of North Charleston, SC, passed away at home peacefully, surrounded by his
family, on Wednesday, September 27, 2023.

Born on November 15, 1956, in Conway, SC, he was a son of Betty Foxworth Jordan and the late Hoyt L.

Michael grew up in Conway, SC. While attending Conway High School he met his wife, Kathy. They have
been together ever since. After high school, he graduated from Clemson University where he majored in
Financial Management. He loved one thing almost as much as his family and that was watching his
Clemson Tigers. He graduated in 1979. After Clemson, he began work at People’s Saving and Loan in
Conway, SC. In 1982 he began his nearly 26 year long career with PYA/Monarch/US Foods. That job
brought him to Mount Pleasant, SC in 1989, Lexington, SC in 1993, and Edgewater, MD in 2003. After
moving to North Charleston, SC in 2006, he “retired” in 2012 to become a stay-at-home husband where
he took care of his beautiful yard and pool. In 2017 he became best known as “Poppi” with the birth of
his first grandchild, Maverick, and then again in 2022 with the birth of Piper.

Michael is preceded in death by his father, Hoyt L. Jordan.

Michael is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Kathy Squires Jordan; children, Jason Jordan (Elise) and
Joanna “Jonathan” Jordan; grandchildren, Maverick Grey and Piper McClellen; his mother, Betty
Foxworth Jordan; brothers, Kevin L. Jordan (Candace) and Greg Jordan (Cindy); sister-in-law, Cheryl
Harrell; brother-in-law, James Squires (Betty); and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
