Jordan Taylor Spain's Life Story

Jordan Taylor Spain is the youngest son born to Patrick Francis and Carrie Lynn (Huff) Spain, on January 21, 1992 in Des Moines, Iowa.  He grew-up in the Polk City, Iowa area along with his older brother Joshua, and graduated from Johnston High School with the Class of 2010.  


From a young age Jordan was a nature lover and enjoyed the outdoors. He loved to hunt, fish, hike, skateboard and snow board. Jordan thrived on exploring and took every opportunity to jump on a train, climb a mountain, hang out on the beach and see the planet. He was an artist in every sense of the word. He had a great-love for music; teaching himself to play the guitar, drums and piano and even writing his own music. His endless creative spirit was also expressed through his sculptures, paintings, drawings and even in the way he dressed. 


He could see beyond appearances and befriend anyone. He was the truest friend you could ask for. He was at home in the wild quiet spaces. He wanted deeply for our society to embrace those in need.” — Jordan’s brother Josh


Jordan was constantly on a quest to uncover the mysteries of life. Everywhere he chose to adventure he found treasures and everything he touched seemed to shift toward magic. Jordan had most recently devoted his life to God and understood how Jesus gave His life for him and all humanity. 

Jordan passed away Thursday afternoon, April 11, 2019 at his parent’s farm near Norwalk.  He lived 27 years, 2 months, and 20 days.  He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandfathers, Clinton “Sonny” Huff and Charles Spain.

Those left to celebrate and cherish Jordan’s life are his parents, Patrick and Carrie (Huff) Spain of Norwalk; his brother and sister-in-law, Joshua (Margeaux) Spain of West Des Moines; grandmothers, JoAn VanBalen of West Des Moines and Joan (Terry) Voshell of St. Marys; his uncles and aunts, C.E. Huff, Sarah Spain, Sean (Diane) Spain, Seamus Spain, Molly Spain, Peter Spain, Siobhan Spain (Jonathan DeLima); and a host cousins, relatives and friends.
