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: It’s hard to believe that Ron is gone so quickly. I’m glad he was able to enjoy his music for so long. He has been greatly missed by the choir. On behalf of the Cowichan Consort choir and Orchestra, and the physicians at Mill Bay Medical Centre, our condolences.
