Jarvis Calvin Bassett
Ogden – Jarvis Calvin Bassett, 66, died on February 17, 2021. Fishing in the Flaming Gorge with his loving companion and fishing partner Linda, together with family and friends, was his passion in life. Jarvis retired from Hill Air Force Base as a trained machinist. Jarvis loved his job and was very happy creating something. Jarvis retired in 2018 to spend more time at the lake and with loved ones.
The family baby Jarvis grew up in the family home in Wellsville and attended local schools in Cache County. Growing up he enjoyed many activities such as biking, hiking, jeep trips, hunting, and most importantly, fishing with family and friends. He and his brother Bill spent countless hours together outdoors during Jarvis’ adult years. Jarvis’ father Royal taught him how to fish at Wellsville Dam to transition into manhood. As an adult, fishing wasn’t just an occasional hobby or an avid nature lover’s interest in Jarvis, fishing was life! Jarvis also loved animals. Jarvis’ dogs were constant companions.
Fishing took up most of his free time as he spent most of the warm weather months on his property in Flaming Gorge. Jarvis was always up before the sun to launch his well-equipped boat in the lake, and the rest of the day was heaven to him. Friends and family have always been invited to catch Kokanee Salmon with Jarvis.
Jarvis was preceded in death by his parents; Father Royal C. Bassett Jr. and mother Afton Peterson Bassett; Sister Joyce Bassett Strebel and former wife Karren Helen Bassett. Jarvis is survived by his loving companion Linda Anthon; Daughter Patti Bassett Harrison (Joshua); Grandson Alex Harrison; Sister Sharon Bassett; Brother Bill Bassett; Brother Warren Bassett; Sister Shonie Bassett (Robert) Harris and brother Jim (DeeAnn) Bassett.
