We Remember

GARVIN, Jordan

January 5, 1990 — September 24, 2022

Jordan Garvin, 32, suddenly passed away at home on September 24, 2022. Born and raised in Quesnel, BC, Jordan moved to Kelowna, BC in 2010.

A thoughtful and gentle young man, Jordan was very soft-hearted and a true, loyal friend to all who were in his life. His family was incredibly important to him. Jordan was hardworking and if you were in need he was there for you. He fought hard in recovery and did very well, he was a positive role model for his peers, and they looked up to him. He supported his peers in recovery, even when he was battling with his own recovery.

Many of us have fond, happy memories of Jordan, he was a gentle giant who taught us so much in his short life.

Jordan leaves behind a broken-hearted family: his mother Dori Garvin; brother Lane Garvin; his sister Brianne Garvin (Lyle); his grandmother Hilda Garvin; Aunt Holly, Aunt Ilona, Aunt Rosemary & Uncle Greg, as well as Uncle Louis & Aunt Ellen; many cousins; and many friends. He was preceded in death by his father Greg Garvin; aunt Kelly Garvin; cousin Karl Wasyliw; grandfather Eugene Garvin and grandparents Lajos & Ilona Martz.

We would like to extend our gratitude to his friends and family that helped him through his journey.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be make to Phoenix Drug & Alcohol Recovery & Education Society.

Family and friends will honour him, each in their own way for now, a service will be held at a later date.

    Jordan Garvin, you were loved, you are loved and now you are so terribly missed. I just hope you know how much we all loved you. I’ll never forget how good you were to me. Like a big brother looking out for me and Brianne in high school, you and Vince fending off the boys and never failing to make everyone laugh. If I needed you, you were there. Your heart was so big and this is so unfair. The good ones really do die young. I admire your strength and bravery through all the shit, you fought a battle you that were dealt. It gives me a little peace knowing you are with your Dad now. I bet you guys are all having a hell of a time up there. Give Mom Bumpa and your Dad a big hug from me. It’s hard to put into words all the emotions. I can just do my best to be there better for the ones left behind. One day I’ll see you on the other side, rest easy beautiful soul 💕

    Brianne, Auntie Dori, Lane, Grandma, Auntie Holli and everyone else that loves and will miss Jordan too; I am so sorry for this loss, may the pain lessen and strength of having each other get us through this. I love you all so much!

    Deepest sympathy 💐 to you all

  • Adam Sigurdson says:

    Please forgive me; as I am late to find this out. I am deeply sorry for your loss Dori, Lane and Brianna. . . As life has a funny way of teaching us. It will create a deep sadness so; we know how to truly understand happiness. It will create chaos in our lives; so that we may appreciate the peaceful times and it will take those we love away from us; so that we will truly understand what their presence meant to us. I remember playing with Jordan as youth alongside with his brother Lane. Lane and I were classmates, we were friends, we went on many adventures in life along with Jordan. We were very innocent back then but good times were celebrated with Nintendo, bike rides and sleep overs, back in the early nineties. I’m deeply sorry for your loss and I can only wish you folks well in life. . . Peace be with you.
