Passed away at Peterborough Regional Health Centre, on Thursday August 29, 2018 with his loving partner at his side. Jordan of Peterborough, formerly of Colbourne, in his 38th year. Dear partner of Michelle Longhurst. Beloved son of Bruce Brydges and the late Kathleen (McRae). Loving brother of Benjamin Ross Carl Brydges (Mishelle) and James Ryan Brydges. Proud uncle of Jimi and Macaela. Jordan will be remembered by his grandmother Ena Brydges (late Charles) and many other relatives and friends in his community.
A celebrated musician and song writer, Jordan played with many musician friends in varying genres. A graduate of Fleming College’s Ecosystem Management Technology program (class president of 2012), Jordan was proud of his environmental work with the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority, and his recent work with the Peterborough Public Library. Jordan achieved his brown belt in Jui Jitsu, and has studied Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Qigong for over ten years. He strived to live in a manner that promoted ongoing development and growth with a focus on kindness. A gentle warrior, he was always the first person to offer a helping hand, sit and talk about the state of the world, or be a listening ear. Jordan consumed the written word with a passion and had a thirst for knowledge. Anyone who was lucky enough to cross Jordan's path knows what an amazingly talented, genius, creative, and tender being he was. In Jordan's words let's remember to cultivate love.
