As we are all preparing for the festive season I am sorry to pass some sad news to our Aunt sally community. Michael (Mick) Jarvis passed away on Monday. Jarv was a long serving and much liked character who was an almost ever present player with Steventon Sports over many years. His sense of humour and his banter with team mates and opponents alike were always evident and appreciated.
Jarv will be sadly missed and Wednesday nights on the green in the Summer will not be the same without him. He will be sorely missed in Aunt Sally circles not only by his teammates, but equally by his opponents and all who knew him. Equally his many friends and colleagues who played golf with Jarv will be saddened by his passing.
In Steventon the whole Jarvis family have always been an integral part of the village life through sport, business and the church for generations. Steventon, his friends and his many customers past and present and local residents will all miss Jarv as much as those of us who knew him well will.
He battled his illness over many months so bravely and asked for no sympathy or sadness and he completed the 2024 summer season as the Captain of the Premier section runners up Steventon Sports A.
Our thoughts are so obviously with all of Jarv’s immediate and extended family as we offer our sincere condolences to them all at this not unexpected but still a very tough time for them all.
