Scott A. Jordan

September 5, 1966 ~ May 25, 2022 (age 55)



     Scott A. Jordan age 55, of Hays, Kansas died on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at Hays Medical Center, Hays, Kansas.  

    He was born September 5, 1966, in Clearfield, Utah to Randall Wayne and Sue Ellen (Clifton) Jordan Sr.  He married Lynette Rumpel and they later divorced.  His companion and fiancé is Becky Meserve.

    Scott was the manager of the Pheasant Run Restaurant in Hays for the past number of years, and prior to this he was a service technician at Tri Central Office Supply in Hays for over 20 years. He lived in Utah, Washington, Illinois, Arizona, and moved to Hays in 1978.  He was a 1984 graduate of Hays High School.  Scott enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, hunting, loved Kansas State University and loved the time he spent with his family, and his extended family including Ryan Werth. 

     Each year he looked forward to playing Santa Claus and seeing the smiles on the children’s faces.  He loved cooking, never met a stranger, and gave the best hugs. 

If Scott wasn’t “Hanging in there like a hair in a biscuit” then he was probably, “Finer than a frog hair split four ways.”  Most important, as Scott would say, “It could be worse, we could all be naked doing this.”
