James H. Jordal, age 92, formerly of Center City, Minnesota passed away at Havenwood of Minnetonka on May 21, 2022. He was preceded in death by beloved wife Mary Bury Jordal, and grandson Adam James Vernes. He is survived by daughter Barbara (Richard) Vernes, son David (Jane) Jordal, and son Daniel Jordal (Kristin Winters).

Jim was a pastor, high school teacher, mountaineer, world traveler, and participant in many triathlons and races of different kinds. He enjoyed reading, biking, hunting, camping, hiking, conversation, and writing about the issues he felt so passionately about. His wisdom, thoughts, and words will be deeply missed.
Jim leaves an enormous space no one else can fill in all our lives, and will be missed every time there is joy to share, a spectacular sight, and a need to be filled.
A memorial service honoring his life will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, June 4, 2022 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lindstrom, Minnesota with visitation one hour prior to the service at church. Interment at Glen Haven Cemetery in Crystal, MN.
