Barry Wil­liam Jarvis

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX - From Mark Mansell

On the 13 June 2018 we lost our friend and staunch club mem­ber BARRY WIL­LIAM JARVIS. Barry was in his 84th year of a very ac­tive and well lived life, full of ac­tion and plenty of things to do. At his fu­neral ser­vice eu­lo­gies were pre­sented by Richard Hy­nard, Mark Mansell, Tony Nes­bitt and Barry’s younger brother Terry Jarvis. And from these a story evolved that de­scribed Barry and the things he did very ac­cu­rately. Barry was a qui­etly spo­ken friend and a quiet achiever. He was a self-em­ployed elec­tri­cian, but still found time to be in­volved in Ro­tary, Bush Fire Bri­gade, mo­tor­cy­cles and pro­vide for a fam­ily of four. Dur­ing his rac­ing days he raced with his close friend Tony Nes­bitt at Vine­yards and Moore­bank cir­cuits and raced a Com­pe­ti­tion Match­less at Bathurst. This bike was owned by Henry Hales who was Tony’s side­car pas­sen­ger. He was a mem­ber of the Mo­tor Cy­cle Rac­ing Club of NSW and St. Ge­orge Mo­tor­cy­cle Club be­fore join­ing the Clas­sic and En­thu­si­asts Mo­tor­cy­cle Club where he served as Pres­i­dent twice and was made a life mem­ber. His pen name was Harry Barvis. His bikes were Tri­umph, Benelli, Ariel and his beloved Manx Nor­ton.

He was a tire­less worker for the C.E.M.C.C. and will al­ways be re­mem­bered for ini­ti­at­ing the En­ga­dine Show­ground as the venue of the An­nual Show Day, a task that con­sumes a lot of time and re­quires a lot of in­volve­ment and ded­i­ca­tion. He was a man of vi­sion, as this venue has served the club well for many years and hope­fully many more to come. Barry was a tremen­dous club mem­ber, a tremen­dous friend, a teacher, a men­tor and a bloody good rider. Wher­ever he is go­ing, may the lap times be fast, the ma­chin­ery re­li­able and above all, may our mem­o­ries of him never fade away. Barry leaves be­hind his wife Heather, son David and an un­count­able num­ber of friends.
