Graden "Barry" Jarvis, 72, of Mt. Washington, entered into the joys of heaven on March 11, 2019.  He loved the Lord, his family, and his church, faithfully serving as Deacon and on numerous committees at First Baptist Church of Mt. Washington.  Barry was born and raised in Muhlenberg County, and moved to the Mt. Washington area in 1973.  He graduated from Western Kentucky University and served in the Air Force.  He retired from General Electric, which allowed him to enjoy his family and the outdoors, especially the golf course.  Barry was preceded in death by his parents, Graden and Mildred Jarvis, and a brother, R. T. Jarvis.  Barry is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Kay Jarvis; daughters, Stephanie (Jay) Wilson and Jennifer (Steve) Hinton; and grandchildren, Josh, Kaylee, Caroline, Isaac, and Conner; two brothers, Horace Wayne Jarvis (Jean) and Jerry Jarvis (Lavon); along with several nieces and nephews.  Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Thursday at First Baptist Church of Mt. Washington.  Friends may visit from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at McFarland-Troutman-Proffitt Funeral Home and after 11 a.m. Thursday at the church.  Burial will be 12 p.m. EST Friday at New Harmony Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery in Breman, KY.  Memorial gifts are suggested to First Baptist Church of Mt. Washington


I worked with Barry at General Electric. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful person. I am sure he will be missed. You will be in my prayers. Judy Shive
Barry was a good friend and a long time member of the same Sunday School class I attended he was a fellow Veteran and a Brother in Christ I will miss his smile and friendship. Greg Burbo
Kay and family, I am presently out of town and will not get to see you personally and I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. You and Barry have been dear friends for many years. I have fond memories of our days together at Bremen High. As you know Barry and I were room mates at Western for a couple of years and we worked together and roomed together during the summer we worked at Bloomington. I always counted him a good friend. It is a comfort to you to know he is in heaven now but the next weeks and months will be difficult. May God give you the strength and courage to get through those days. Be assured you will be in my thoughts and prayers during those days. Randall Garst
