Lincoln - Michael Loren Jarvis died peacefully surrounded by his loved ones in Bangor, Maine on November 4, 2020 at the age of 73.
Michael was born on May 22, 1947 in Danforth, Maine and moved to Lincoln as a small child. He graduated from Mattanawcook Academy in 1966. He married his soulmate, Linda Jarvis in 2004. At a very young age, Michael began working for Lincoln Pulp and Paper as a machine back tender and worked there for 40 years. Over the years, Michael welcomed many children into his home. His door was always open to anyone who needed a place to stay. His children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were a very important part of his life. His family remember him as a kind and gentle man.
Michael had a love of sports and often would reminisce of the days when he played sports from back yard ball through his school years and even as a young adult. He loved interacting with the young athletes whenever possible from umpiring a little league game to moving the chains at the MA home football games. He was an active and dedicated member of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Lincoln, Maine for over 40 years. Anyone who knew Mike knew his love and devotion to Jesus Christ.
Michael is survived by his wife of 16 years, Linda Jarvis.

Mike and I were best friends growing up during and after graduating. Every time I saw him, he always had a smile on his face. He never had a bad word about anyone. Miss you my friend.
