Jarvis was born in Corbyville, Ontario on January 27, 1891. Before the war, he worked as a miner in Ontario. Jarvis was married to Florence Emma, an Englishwoman, during the war, sometime at the end of 1917. In August of 1918 at Arras, Jarvis received gunshot wounds to his right leg. His leg was amputated the following month and he was invalided to Canada in March of 1919. Jarvis and Florence came to the Hythe area in 1921; they went to Vancouver for a little while, but returned to homestead in Lymburn (21-73-11-W6; 34-73-12-W6) around 1925. When they left the homestead and moved to Lymburn, Florence opened a small restaurant on main street. Jarvis died on February 22, 1949.
