Ron Jarvis

December 5, 1954 - January 25, 2013


Six years ago Ron’s soul began a journey to heaven that was to see fragments of his life chase after.Piece by piece he left us, until now, at last, he is made whole again.

Surrounded by the four women who love him most: his mother, sister, daughter, and wife; Ron has left this world to be with his Lord. He died peacefully after a 6 year struggle with early-onset dementia, and will be remembered as being a gentle and compassionate doctor, church music leader and devoted father and husband. Ron was a man with a heart of gold, a mind as supple as quicksilver, and a love as deep as the ocean.Ron is survived by his wife, Anne, children David, Camilla ( James) and Matthew, and dearest of all, the joy of his last days, his beloved granddaughter Keighley.

A service in recognition of this extraordinary man's life will be held on Saturday, February 2, at 2.30 pm at New Life Baptist Church.

Fragments of a once majestic mirror; pieces broken beyond repair are now restored to glory.

Dear Anne and Family
I got a preview of your message in the paper, and am stirred with the grace you express over Ron’s Passing. One of the last times I got to play music with Ron was at a men’s weekend. He and another friend Brian from that weekend now make up a part of the heavenly band.
My prayers are with you as you grieve, but know that I am also full of gratitude for this man, his music, and quiet grace, and for the chance to spend a bit of time with him…. and play.

From: Marny Beaton
Relation: We attended church together

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Anne and family, as you let Ron go. He was such a kind, gentle, thoughtful man. He will be missed by anyone lucky enough to have met him. What glorious music will be heard throughout the heavens now that he resides with the Lord! God bless.
