Goodbye to an Inspiration
Everything that he did, he did with passion and commitment.
Delmar served, as many in his generation did, during WWII as a radioman in the United States Navy in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters. He was frustrated in recent years that, after nearly seventy years, he had begun to forget Morse code.
But perhaps most impressive of all was the love that he had for his wife, Arlene, his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Just two weeks ago, Delmar and Arlene celebrated their 75th (no, that's no typo, that's SEVENTY-FIVE) wedding anniversary. Just knowing these two special people always reminded everyone that marriage can last a lifetime.
There is so much about Delmar Jarvis that made him both impressive and likable, from his infections smile, to the way that he made everyone feel special, and so many other things that there's no way to share it all here.
If you would like to read more about him, you can find his obituary, eulogy, and a few family memories by clicking here.
Goodbye my friend.
You will certainly be missed.
