Michael Jarvis
Michael Stephen Jarvis, October 20, 1952-June 20, 2022 passed away peacefully at Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital after a brave battle with cancer.

He leaves behind his loving wife of 48 years, Carol (Dagg) Jarvis; son David Roy Jarvis (Kim) Windsor, Nova Scotia; daughter Jennifer Buder (Mark), South Frontenac, Ontario. Sister and brother, Brenda Holland (Philip), Glenwood, N.B.; Leslie Jarvis (Florence), Kiersteadville, N.B.; Sister-in-laws, Linda Dagg (Ken); Susan Dagg; and mother-in-law, Isobel Dagg, Toronto, Ontario.

Predeceased by his parents Maxine and Roy Jarvis, sister Carolyn Johnson and baby brother Royden.

Sergeant Michael Stephen Jarvis was a member of the R.C.M.P. for over 30 years in Southern Ontario and Headquarters, Ottawa but he was more than a Mountie: He was a loving husband, father, brother, brother-in-law, son-in-law, uncle, Christian, friend, golfer, world traveler, Deputy Mayor, writer, author, gardener, volleyball coach (Sarg), Police Olympic Volleyball gold medalist, volunteer, lover of music, an all-round “gentleman”. His talents were endless.

On retirement in 2002 from the R.C.M.P where he traveled nationally and internationally, Mike returned to his hometown of Plaster Rock for 15 years. While living there, he supported Carol who attended UNB in her quest for an education degree. He immersed himself in contributing to the community as a Plaster Rock United Baptist member and volunteer, Village Councillor, Deputy Mayor, Tobique Lion Member, Assistant Superintendent of the Plaster Rock Community Cemetery, volunteer for the Donald Fraser Breakfast Program, Coach for the Middle School Tobique Panther volleyball boys’ team, author of the historical fiction book ‘G-3105’.

A move to Fredericton enabled closer access to the airport where Mike and Carol began the amazing journey of traveling the world together: two River Cruises along the Rhine, Main and Danube; two Ocean Cruises, Barcelona to Bergen and Iceland and just prior to the pandemic, Santiago Chile to Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast. Condo living at Golf Greens provided a great way to live, travel and be part of an amazing community. Golf was another of Mike’s passions while in Fredericton as he was a member of the Kingswood Golf Course and golfed regularly with the “Fab Four”. Mike has said that “God puts us where we need to be when we need to be there”. Being in Fredericton allowed him to be in close proximity to the hospital so that he had ready access to the technology and health services that he needed in the last 10 months and Carol was in close proximity to support him daily.

Our thanks to the Grace Memorial Baptist congregation for their support and prayers, R.C.M.P. Veterans of Association of Fredericton; 1 Golf Greens Lane Condo caring community; loving friends Terry and Paula Ryan, Gail and Blair DeGrace; Michael Clarke, nurse practitioner; Fredericton Extramural nurses; dedicated nursing staff and Palliative Care physicians on 3E who continue to work tirelessly during this stressful time and Dr. Barry Wecker of Plaster Rock.
