Jordan Yates

Obituary Condolences

Jordan Yates 1990 ~ 2008 Our sweet Jordan "Buds", son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and child of God returned to his Heavenly Father on September 16th, 2008, after a year long battle with cancer. Jordan was born April 20th, 1990 to Rodrick James Yates and Stacey Knudsen Ellsworth. Jordan was a remarkable young man with vision, purpose, charisma and a unique way of looking at the world. He was a best friend to everyone and kids of all ages adored him. He was best known for his angelic sense of humor, extreme mountain biking, Mo-Tab music, Nightingale-Conant CD's, and his creation of wallets, games and a unique sense of fashion created out of duct tape. He was granted a "Make a Wish" from that wonderful program and his wish was to meet Tony Robins. (Inspirational and motivational speaker). Like Tony, Jordan's ambition was to make a difference in the world. Jordan loved his Heavenly Father. He lived his life teaching, serving and always setting an example to everyone he met. His life was spent planning and preparing to serve a mission for his Father in Heaven. Now, though his field of labor is far, far away he is serving an even greater mission, and we look forward to the day when we will meet him again and hold him forever in our arms. A special thanks to his sweet angel "Kenzie" for sharing with him her unconditional and Christ-like love here in mortality. Survived by his parents, brothers, Tyson and Tanner his sister Mariah, step father Stan Ellsworth, step brother Tristan, step sister Kirstie, grandparents Mike and Bonnie Knudsen and Jim and Cindy Yates.
