Passed away suddenly at his late residence on January 10th, 2020, Stephen Howard Jarvis, of Welland, Ontario, at the age of 58. Born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia to Jean Louise Hazelwood, of Tillsonburg and the late “Biff” Wilfred Douglas Jarvis (December 1, 2014). Stephen was employed with the Ministry of Transportation in St. Catherine’s until his recent retirement. Stephen was fond of camping and the outdoors; a tradition passed on from his father and mother and shared with his family. Stephen loved to golf, especially when it meant a day out on the course with his son Andy. He loved to travel and visit popular resorts with family and friends. Stephen loved his children above all else and he was very proud of their accomplishments and he made them the subject of conversation whenever possible.

Stephen will be dearly missed by his daughter Stephanie Jarvis (Brian Liljestrand), of Vineland and by his son Andy Jarvis, of Welland. Survived by his siblings: James (May) Jarvis, Marie (Leon) Roelens, Gordon (Michelle) Jarvis and Joanne Drouin. Special uncle to Justin, Meghan, Sam, Morgan, Laura and Matt. Also missed by Rob, Brenda and Amy. In keeping with Stephens wishes, cremation has taken place. All that knew Stephen are welcomed to attend a time of visitation on Tuesday, January 21st, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Tillsonburg. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will follow at 2:00 St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Tillsonburg by Rev. Paul Robinson, assisted by Stephen’s friend Rev. Canon Dr. Brent Stiller, of St. Peter & St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Ottawa. Music will be shared by Carol Robinson. Private inurnment later in the Windham Centre Cemetery.

Miss you dad. There hasn't been a day where I haven't thought of you. Thank you for all the great memories in the 22 years I got to have you in my life. I was lucky to have a father like you who always treated me with kindness and understanding. I think that's a principle I've tried to take in my own life that I've learned from you. I hope to see you again one day.

Jean, Jim, Marie, Gordon, Joanne, Stephanie and Andrew,
We are sending our love to all of you and keeping you in our prayers. Our collective memories of Steve are many, filled with fun, laughter and a smile full of mischief, at least in the younger years! We hope you know that though we were not there in body, we have all been with you in spirit and love.
The Stone-Pennock Cousins- Kathy, Brian, Karen, John, Michael and Mark

I am so sorry to hear this. My deepest sympathy.

My deepest condolences to Steve's kids Steph and Andy and his family. I knew Steve as a colleague and a friend at the Ministry of Transportation. He was a soulful friend who was there for you no matter what. I cherished our friendship through the years but unfortunately lost contact over the last couple of years.
Steve was also a proud father. Not a day went by that he didn't speak with love and pride of Andy and Steph. He relished in sharing memories of trips to Myrtle Beach and every day he spent golfing or hanging out with his son Andy.
My cherished memory of Steve is when we headed out for a day to Canada's Wonderland, just to find out it was closed that day. We decided to make the best of it and headed out for an amazing fun day at the Toronto Zoo, filled with laughter. Steve will always have a place in my heart as one of my dearest friends. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathy and condolences to the Jarvis family.
I was lucky enough to meet Steve last year.
Steve was a very nice person and we being friends very quickly, I learned from him how to give and help others without any expectations.
He treated me as a close friend and supported me a lot. He was a great and generous man that I will never forget.
Rest in peace Steve. I know you’re in heaven now.
