I didn't know Mr. Dick Jarvis in a personal sense but through
my interactions w/ The Bank Of The Carolinas.

I found him to be a kind soul with a distinct smile that let you know
he was going to take care of your business as if it was his own.

My condolences to his family and that you may know w/o a doubt,
your loved one will never be forgotten for his contributions
to all.

To Kathy and Family,
I never met Dick personally, but I felt like I knew him. Craig's letters ,from Viet Nam, were filled with tales of the two of them serving their country together. Over the years the boys lost touch with one another, but thanks to the internet, they got reconnected. I'm so glad they did. Craig was extremely found of Dick and spoke so very highly of him. My husband was a fabulous person too, and appreciated an individual who had high standards. Dick evidently did! I only wish they could have seen one another, even one more time, before they both passed away. Having said that, I am happy to think that they are reunited in the here after. What a reunion that must have been!! May God Bless your family and watch over you in the coming days. Hugs to all.. Donna

Dickie was a faithful supporter of Zeta Xi Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. “Men worthy of his regard,” he sent a check for $1,000 per year to “bail out” financial deficits long before the formation of a Zeta Xi Alumni Association.

Brother Jarvis and I spoke in the late nineties about the condition of the Fraternity he help found. His only question was, “what do you need?” - Phi Phi Kappa Alpha

A true, unwavering friend to all who knew "DJ". Always positive and supportive, he could never do enough for you. If anyone could rewrite the book, "How to win friends . . .", it would be Dick. The world is definitely better for his contributions to us. We should all strive to emulate his example.
