JARVIS, John H. Jr. Went to be with his son, John E. Jarvis, in the heavens Saturday, January 26, 2013. He is survived by his loving wife Anita Jarvis; daughter Donna Peterson who gave him three grandchildren, and five great-grandkids. He loving-ly raised his wife's sister (Phyllis Bergmans) three children as his own resulting in seven more grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. He was married to Anita for 61 years. He was a retired Air Force Veteran and was in military 23 years, Civil Service for over 20, and fought in Vietnam. He continued to be involved in FAFB by volunteering at the pharmacy for another 20+ years. During his life he had several associations with birds. Anyone who knows him knows of his extensive birdhouse collection. His CB call name was Red Rooster, Hospice nicknamed him Birdman, his oldest great-granddaughter was his Jaybird, and all his grandsons were chicken thieves. He always had a funny joke, story, or song which he sometimes accompanied with harmonica, guitar, banjo, or fiddle. He was always willing to help anyone in need. So, to continue his life of giving we are asking instead of flowers that a donation be made to Hospice House of Spokane in John Jarvis' name, so he can have a tribute leaf in his honor. Donations can be made at his Fond Farewell Tuesday, February 5 from 3-6:30pm at St Anne Church/Hall in Medical Lake WA. This is a kid friendly event with crafts, food, and memories. Please come share your story. You can also donate on his site http://www.giveforward.com/gpashospicememorialtribute open through the end of March.
