SPRINGFIELD – Jorden Lamon Williams earned his angel wings at the tender age of 12 after a treacherous battle with Sickle Cell Anemia.
Jorden was born on October 31, 2007 in Springfield, MA to Hakeem B. Williams and Kimberly N. Barnes.
Jorden was in the 7th grade at South End Middle School in Springfield, MA.
Jorden was a burst of energy, his laughs could fill a room. Jorden had a tender caring soul and a heart full of love.
He was a Spider Man fanatic and aspired to be a video game editor. His videos on social media were a sure sign of his future success.
When Jorden was not filling his time gaming, he enjoyed playing basketball at the neighborhood court, listening to and making his own music, and playing with his remote control cars.
