Last week Pambula Rotary lost one of their oldest and longest serving Rotarians - Murray Jarvis - he was a month shy of his 94th birthday. 
Murray was born in 1927 and joined Rotary in 1962 at age 35. This year he would have been celebrating 59 years in Rotary.  His family understand that he was the 3rd longest serving Rotarian in Australia and while our digital systems at Parramatta office seem unable to verify this, we have had feedback from a fellow Rotarian who joined soon after Murray and have confirmed the timeline. Murray was a past President and PHF; he also received an OAM in 2016 for his work for Rotary and in the community. 
Murray remained an active member and was still regularly attending meetings before he passed away. He was always ready  to volunteer at events and working bees and was a dab hand on the BBQ. At the time of his death, Murray also had lead responsibility for maintaining Eden Rotary Park - he would visit daily, liaise with Council on any issues that arose, and coordinate working bees within the Club to assist with ongoing maintenance of the gardens and picnic facilities. 
Murray will be sadly missed - he was well respected within the Club and the broader community, and devoted his life to community service. We thank him for his service. 
Rotarians across the District acknowledge the contribution Murray made and extend their condolences to the family and Murray's sons - Ray, Rob and Alan.
