Friends may call at the Lindstrom Funeral Home in Harmony from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, and also one hour prior to services at the church. Burial will be in Greenfield Cemetery.

Ordon was born on July 17, 1936, in Mabel. He attended Harmony schools. He followed his dad and mother’s love of farming with much success. He was employed at Peterson Bros. and he always had time to help his friends and family. Ordon was an avid sports fan and followed his hometown team with much enthusiasm. NFL teams especially the Vikings passed many hours, although it didn’t really matter as long as it was football.

He loved horses and sometimes entered them in parades. He also enjoyed dancing, fishing, and hunting in his spare time. He was a family man who took great pleasure in his grandchildren, and later two great-granddaughters.

On June 12, 1968, Ordon and Junice Seem were married, and together raised her sons, Mark and John Seem. Junice passed away on Feb, 27, 1996. Eight years later, while at a dance, he met and soon married Emma Dimick, who loved and cared for him through his final journey of life.

Ordon is survived by his wife, Emma; a twin brother, Ordean; three sisters, Phyllis Gregerson, Carla Erickson, and Daphne Lawson; two step-sons, Mark (Bonnie) Seem and their children, Jacob and Matthew; John Seem and his children, and Emily and Jim; a granddaughter Jessica; a grandson, James; and two great grandchildren, Mackenzie and Megan.
