The fiancee and family of a driver who died following a crash on a Fenland road last month have paid tribute to him ahead of his funeral next week.

Andrew Jarvis, who was 32 and from Marshland St James, was killed after his car left the road at St John’s Fen End on November 24.

Now his fianceé Micha McGuffog has paid an emotional tribute to Mr Jarvis, who worked at Palm Paper in Lynn.

She said: “I met Andrew at a local pub in October 2007 and we lived together in the village of Marshland St James with our four-year-old son Alfie.

“Andrew was an extremely hardworking fiancé and daddy.

“He was at his happiest spending time with us, taking us to local indoor play centres, to the beach or out for a family meal.

“Andrew has left a huge void in our lives and also to all those who knew him.”

Pat, John and Vicky Jarvis – Andrew’s mother, father and sister – have also paid tribute.

The family said: “Andrew started school at Wormegay Primary School and lived with us throughout his childhood, and as a teenager moved to Fincham and attended Downham Market High School.

“On leaving school, Andrew acquired an apprenticeship in carpentry then moved on to Williams’ Refrigeration in Downham Market and on to Palm Paper in King’s Lynn.

“He will be deeply missed – as a son, dad, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and nephew ­– but never forgotten.”

Andrew’s funeral is due to take place next Tuesday, December 15, at 2.30pm at the Mintlyn Crematorium, near Lynn.

The family have asked for no flowers and for donations to be split between the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity trust and Alfie, Andrew’s son.
