Delford William "Bill" Jarvis, 70, passed unexpectedly Saturday, April 3rd, 2021. Bill was the son of the late Ernest Delford Jarvis and Viniece (Stanley) Jarvis of Williams River, Cowen, WV. He was born April 6th, 1950 and graduated in 1968 from Cowen High School.
Bill enjoyed fishing and hunting as well as being a member of the Honor Guard and a proud veteran of the US Army. He also enjoyed painting, art and was a sci-fi fanatic. We are sure he knows the truth about Sasquatch now. Bill loved being around family and friends and going on adventures. He spoiled his grandchildren and great-grandchildren beyond belief. He was known as a practical joker and gave everyone their own nicknames.
Surviving are his wife Susan Mathes Jarvis, son Ronnie William Jarvis (Luticia "Laquisha") and daughter Pamela Sue Jarvis Martin (Kenneth) and his special daughter Angela Sue WilliamsPowers (Gary) and their son Dusty. He loved his 6 grandchildren Kayla Brooke "little squirrel" Jarvis, Lillian Marie "Lil' Lill" Martin Hamrick (Corey), Jessica Mae "grandson he never had" Martin, Bryan Allen "Brain" Hamrick, Gabriel Ryder "Thing 1" Giles, Karissa Ane "Thing 2) Giles and his 3 great-grandchildren Zackary Paul "Zacky" Jarvis, Mason Lee "Masonator" Hamrick, Kinsley Rena "goober" Hamrick. His sisters Sonja Judy Jarvis Randolph, Annabelle Lea Jarvis (Chris) and his brother Jackson "Jack" Jarvis (Martie) and several nieces and nephews and dear friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents and his sisters Linda Carol Jarvis Cash and Sandra Kay Jarvis Shufford.
