Rest in Paradise, Chris

Sorry I haven’t updated in a few days; I’ve been swamped with work. While I was working today, I got several texts informing me of horrible news…

Chris Jarvis, a football player who I went to school with, passes away this morning.

Even though I didn’t personally know Chris, our school was small and I knew of him. I can’t describe the emotions I am feeling about his passing and I can only imagine the grief and pain of his family and friends.

In high school, everyone remembers him as having a glittering personality. Chris always joked around and made everything fun. He was open to everyone and made the idea of the Lasallian Brotherhood have true meaning.

With his passing, the only thing we can do now is keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers. I kindly ask of you reading this to pray for him as well.

Chris, may you find eternal peace and be reunited with your father again.

Here are a few commemorations that people have posted on his Facebook wall.

“From football to kairos, from everything in between, you were always a great friend and a better person. The world lost a little bit of its light with you not being here. RIP, I love you and will always remember you.”
– Garrett Roland

i still cant believe this. you are one of the only people i know that has such a contagious personality. and i know our friendship was just beginning but you have had such an impact on my life and i will never forget you. you singing to me all night last weekend will be one of the best memories i will ever have. word for word.

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you I don’t know how

Because maybe You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all You’re my wonderwall.
you will never be forgotten and i will miss you everyday i see a mothers cookie, a can of shaving cream, the laffayette house, or hear our song. cause after it all Chris you’re my wonderwall.
love you. rest in peace.”

“R.I.P. Chris Jarvis. I fucking love you bro, nothing will ever change that. Man I will always remember the good times we had. The jokes, the time we went to the lake, everything. I curse the fact that your dad was taken too early, I can’t even imagine how hard that was on you. I will never forgive myself for not remaining close with you over this last year. I promised myself that we would be best friends again after the grad party where I saw you and Kevin for the first time in years. I procrastinated, as usual, and I’ll have to live with that. You always made me laugh fam, I’m gunna miss that the most. Wherever you are, I want you to know that I love you bro. We’ll be missin you Chris, Rest In Peace.”
– Kevin Landucci
