Mark and Paul Jarvis
Our father, Bud Jarvis, did it his way. He left a lucrative law practice by the time he was 50 and never worked at a job again, living full time after that on Cortes Island. He lived by his wits, investing in real estate and risky stock market ventures. He was a hippy in a BMW, a hunter and member of a drum circle. He liked to watch Business News Network while playing a didgeridoo.
He was an avid nudist and an adventurous ocean kayaker. He didn’t much care what anyone thought of him. He loved to tell stories, and he had many of them. And everyone who knew Bud had amazing stories to tell about him. He was a free man, other than his enslavement to his garden. He loved to play poker and his poker style was the only thing conservative about him.
We want to thank Ben Fulton and our cousin, Brent Shaw, for their heroic attempt to rescue Bud at great risk to themselves, as well as all the emergency responders who showed up that night. We also want to thank Doreen Guthrie, his friend and neighbor, who kept an eye on him the last few years. Our hearts go out to Brenda King Finch, the love of his life. And our thanks to his many friends who have reached out to us and to our aunt, Bud’s sister and close friend, Anne Fulton.
Bud didn’t want a funeral or memorial or anything. But to hell with that. We are going to throw a party for him sometime this summer. We’ll let you know when we figure out a date.
