On Saturday, March 7, 2020, Michael Patrick Jordan passed away after a year long battle with cancer, at age 59.
He was born on July 13, 1960 in New Hartford, NY, to Charles and Betty (Cole) Jordan. He had one son, Michael Charles Jordan.
Michael was a US Marine, serving his country from 1979 to 1982, after which he pursued his passion for music by moving into a career as a DJ and talk show host, using the name Michael Lee, in the radio industry, while working at various radio stations in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, and Connecticut. He also played guitar and wrote songs.
After leaving the radio industry he chose to focus the remainder of his life on his desire to help others overcome alcoholism, a disease that he was able to eventually beat, and remained sober for the last decade of his life. He was an active participant of AA through his final years. Mike had a very quick wit, a genuine sense of humor, and a passion to help all those who were struggling and in need. A favorite saying of his was “others can only treat you the way you allow them to”.
Mike was preceded in death by his father Charles Jordan, and his mother Betty Jordan Davis. He is survived by the absolute and forever love of his life Ingrid Persson Kraft, his son Michael (Mikey) Jordan, his brothers Robert, Kenneth and Alan Jordan, and his sisters in law Stacy Jordan, Doreen Jordan and Christine Jordan. In addition he had many cousins, and also nephews and nieces Adam and Daryll Jordan, Alec Jordan, Kimberly Jordan, Charles (CJ) and Jennifer (Jordan)Woodman, Todd Jordan, Kyle and Rachael Jordan, and his beloved cat Wee Wee.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
