He is survived by his wife Marilyn Silver-Jarvis, sister Vie Anderson, brother Vern Holsten, sister Jeanette Bagge, daughter Kenna Senn, sons James and Curtis Jarvis, six grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
A few special thoughts: Dad always said, “ how is my favorite daughter?” or “ I have three children….. one of each.” I will miss his sense of humor. Kenna
Dad was the guy with the slapable belly for us kids, he always found great deals on yard sales, and he pretty much let us be kids. James
Thank you Pop for your guidance and wisdom, I will never forget golfing and deep sea fishing with you and James. I love you and you will be deeply missed. Curtis.
