Obituary for Nicholas H. Jarvis

Nicholas H.  Jarvis
Nicholas H. Jarvis, of Westerly, died Thursday, August 3, 2017 at his home in Westerly. While he struggled with a significant medical condition for many years, his passing, at age 22, was sudden and unexpected.

Nick was an alum of Westerly High School, class of 2013, and was much beloved in several quarters of the community. He was a musician - a drummer, to be precise.

He worked as a cook for the Velvet Vine in Stonington and was formerly employed as a commercial fisherman out of Pt. Judith. Nick loved fishing, music, was an accomplished cook and ad hoc comedian.

A lifelong resident of Westerly, Nick is survived by his parents Jason & Kelly Jarvis and his brother Joshua Sposato; a retinue of aunts, uncles and cousins and a legion of friends and admirers of his quick wit, tenacious will, prodigious talent and loveable personality. His beautiful spirit will be forever remembered by all.

The observance of his passing will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Stand-Up For Animals, PO Box 1706, Westerly, RI 02891 in Nick’s memory.
