Stephen Jarvis passed away on September 10, 2006 at 9:30 am in Chilliwack, BC at age 78 years. He was born March 13, 1928 in Fort William, Ontario. Steve is survived by his children, Vincent of Chilliwack, Kelley (Bob) of Edmonton, AB, Maureen of Okotoks, AB and Ainsley (Maria) of Rosedale. He was predeceased by his sister, Mary Coates.
Steve spent twelve years in the army with a tour of duty in Korea. In 1958, he settled in the Fraser Valley where he finished his military career and joined Canada Post as a postal carrier. When he retired from the Post Office, and until his health prevented him from doing so, he took pride in being a certified painter and decorator. His passion was hunting and fishing and any opportunity to be outdoors pleased him most.
A memorial gathering for family and friends will be held on Friday, September 15, 2006 at 2:00 pm.
