  1. Ann & I send our thoughts and prayers to the Jarvis family for their loss of a really great man. What was important and stands out with me in knowing Bob was his approachability and friendly manner with all who knew him. I first met Nan and got to know her as a secretary at EJD, and I always respected her classy manner with both adults and children. His community spirit remains ….

  2. Nan, Bobby, and Rick
    I was sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. His journey was long and now he can be at rest. Please give your mother a hug for me, as I have to work both Friday and Saturday. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all.

  3. Dear Nan, Robert and Rick,
    I first met Bob while visiting Sealright in Fulton with my new bride, Gail, in 1973. I was a young Sealright salesman from Minnesota and will always remember and appreciate how kind Bob was to us at the time. Little did I know that I would be transferred to Fulton in 1982, work closely with Bob, share some business successes and become very good friends he and Nan.

    While saddened to see Bob’s health deteriorate over the past several years, I shall always be thankful that he was a part of my family’s life. He helped me in so may ways over the years… one that I’d like to share. While living down the road from Bob/Nan in Radisson, Gail and I went on a week long trip one January and my mother came to babysit our four young children. Bob offered to stop by and check in on her occasionally. During a particularly heavy snowstorm he stopped by and asked if she needed anything. Her request… I could use six gallons of milk to get through the next few days! Bob was shocked. “Did I hear you right…Six gallons he said?” Bob went shopping for her and delivered the six gallons. He and I laughed about that for many years.

    Sending you my sincere condolences and best wishes. May Bob rest in peace knowing that you and so many of us cared about him too!

    Doug
