Tribute has been paid to a young father who died after a crash in St John’s Fen End.

Andrew Jarvis, 32, of Marshland St James, was killed after his car left the road on November 24.

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

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

“Andrew was an extremely hard-working 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.”

A funeral for Andrew was held at Mintlyn Crematorium in King’s Lynn yesterday.

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