By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Bill Jarvie's service to the Sto- kes Valley RSA was unlikely to be equalled anywhere in New Zealand, mourners at his funeral were told. Mr Jarvie, who had lived in Stokes Valley for 63 years, died peacefully at Stokeswood Rest Home and Hospital on June 4, aged 94. Alan Simpson, from the Sto- kes Valley RSA, where the funeral was held, said Mr Jarvie had been a member of the club for 63 years. He had served 19 years as treasurer, 10 as sec- retary and five as president between 1947 and 1991. The club made him its first life member in 1963 and later its patron. He represented the RSA on the dominion executive and was given the organisation's national merit badge, gold star and bar. He also wrote the history of the branch. Mr Jarvie was an approach- able, proud and gentle man'' who had been involved in all aspects of Stokes Valley life. If you want a job done, give it toabusyman;hewasoneof those,'' Mr Simpson said. Mr Jarvie was also one of Stokes Valley's oldest free- masons and had almost 59 years' service to the organis- ation. He was installed in the Hautonga Lodge 366, later called Stokes Valley Lodge 460, in 1952. He became lodge master for the 1972-73 year and later received his badge for 50 years' service. Lodge member Alan Tolra said he had been mentored by Mr Jarvie. When Mr Tolra became master, his mentor agreed to support him as deputy master at the age of 84. Mr Jarvie was a truly dedicated'' freemason. Friend and celebrant Absie Crook said Mr Jarvie never had a bad word for anyone and always looked on the brighter side of life. Mr Jarvie's son Bill said his father was born in Scotland in 1916 and came to New Zealand 10 years later with his parents and sister Betty. His accent made him some- thing of a novelty to his new classmates. When World War II broke out he joined the army and saw active service in Italy and the Middle East. He met his wife, Phyl, after the war and proposed to her on the Shandon Golf Course by say- ing If you sink that putt I'll marry you''. The couple settled in Stokes Valley and raised three sons. They made many friends and became involved in many organ- isations. Mr Jarvie's name appears about 35 times on the RSA office bearer board of honour as presi- dent, secretary and treasurer. He became a foundation mem- ber of the freemasons' lodge and held many positions there. A firm but fair father, his main interests were family, RSA, work, RSA, golf, racing, indoor bowls and helping others'', one of life's true gentlemen'' and a real servant of the community'', his son said. He received a Lower Hutt civic award followed by the Queen's Service Medal in 2005. Mr Jarvie's wife died in 1995. The couple are survived by their three sons Bill (Christ- church), Alister and Mark (both Stokes Valley), five grand- children and four great- grandchildren.
