On Tuesday morning, April 18, 2017, the Great God Almighty called home the soul of our dearly beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and golden companion, Jordan Merdith. He was born in Scotland Neck, N.C. on April 17, 1941 to the late Lillian Merdith and Paul Williams. Early in life, his family moved to Norfolk, VA, where he remained throughout his lifetime. He was best known to the family and close friends as “Buddy Boy and Bud.” He was employed with ILA (International Longshoreman Association) since 1966 and remained there until his retirement. He was an excellent provider, a great cook, and a loyal and devoted patriarch to his family and friends. Jordan was a modest and private individual who assisted those in need. He demonstrated his love for others in a private manner being just a phone call away. Throughout his life he found God and became very spiritual. Jordan was predeceased by his parents, Lillian Welling-Merdith and his father, Paul Williams; the love of his life, Beatrice Jacobs-Harris; his 2nd wife, Barbara Jean Meredith; brother, Roosevelt and Leeiron Meredith; sisters, Naomi Hayes and Carolyn Jean Meredith; maternal and paternal grandparents; and stepfather, Coleman Meredith. He leaves to cherish precious memories two daughters, Jordon Meredith of Washington D.C. and Tasha Taylor of Norfolk, VA; two sons, Troy Taylor and Clinton Meredith of Norfolk, VA; sisters, Barbara Jean Brown, Carrie and Wanda Smith all of Scotland Neck, N.C.; fiancé, Kalsie Hall of Norfolk, VA; grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews; two step daughters, Angela Williams of Chesapeake, VA and Michelle Bibbs of Carrollton, VA; and a host of loving relatives and friends. A funeral service will be held, 12:30pm, Saturday, April 29, 2017 at United House of Prayer, 1206 Church Street, Norfolk, Virginia with Apostle W. R. Scott, Pastor Presiding. A viewing will be held, 4pm-8pm, Friday, April 28, 2017 at Metropolitan Funeral Service, 7246 Granby St. Norfolk, VA. Burial will be held at Roosevelt Memorial Park, Chesapeake, VA.

Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have loss someone we love in death. The Bible provides the finest basis for comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 calls God "the God of all Comfort". Just imagine, being comforted by a God that knows what we need and gives it to us at the right time to help us cope and to give us a hope. The promises found in His Words are very true because God cannot lie. I hope this message brings you and your family some comfort.

Michael Dear Merdith family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Jordan. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also. Additional comforting scriptures can be found at www.jw.org search:comfort.
