Life and career

Jarvis was born in Toronto, Ontario, the son of Margaret Biddulph (Scratcherd) and William Henry Reginald Jarvis, an investment banker and president of John Labatt Ltd. His maternal great-grandfather was businessman and brewer John Labatt, whose own father was Labatt founder John Kinder Labatt. He attended Williams College before moving to New York to pursue a career in theatre.

Jarvis starred in the television soap opera parody Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman as Charlie "Baby Boy" Haggers, the much older husband of wanna-be country music star Loretta Haggers, played by Mary Kay Place. He also appeared on other television programs such as Naked City, Route 66, N.Y.P.D., All in the Family, M*A*S*H, Mork & Mindy, Starsky and Hutch, Cagney and Lacey, Mama's Family, Fame, Married... with Children, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Get a Life, The X Files, ER, and Six Feet Under. He played character roles in several films. His last major part was as "Charles Jackson", father of Annie Jackson Camden in the Warner Brothers TV drama 7th Heaven, a role that he filled until his death.

Jarvis acted in the role of Elliot Sinclair in the Journeyman Project trio of video games and was also the narrator in the first American production of The Rocky Horror Show at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, playing alongside Meat Loaf and Tim Curry.

He lived in Los Angeles with his wife Joanna Jarvis, and two sons Alex and Matt. Jarvis was also the uncle of former AIMR President Peter Jarvis. In 2003, he died from multiple myeloma and was interred at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake Village, California.
