Jarvi, Eric (February 1, 1940- July 12, 2021)
Eric passed away surrounded by his loving wife and children on July 12, 2021 in his 82nd year. There will be a party in heaven where he joins many of his lifelong friends, and family.
Eric was a proud Northener. He grew up in South Porcupine, and then made his way to Hamilton for university where he met Anne, the love of his life and wife of 51 years. They settled to teach in North Bay where they made their home, raised their family and immersed themselves in the community. Eric was a proud Chippewa Raider for over 30 years. He loved his students, colleagues and teaching career, and spent many hours supporting sports and community organizations.
Best Dad to Jennifer (Doug), Liz (Dave), and Mark (Andrea), and beloved Papa to Kyla, Jakob, Ava, Adele, and Elliot. His friends knew him as Jarv – he was big in life with a great heart, big laugh and even bigger smile.
There will be a church service (invitation only) followed by an open house to celebrate Eric’s life (all are welcome) at the family home from 2-5pm on Saturday July 24.
If desired, donations to St. Brice’s Church, Nipissing Serenity Hospice or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
