The Nov. 29 death of Sgt. 1st Class Barry Jarvis brought home to Perry County the tragedy of a war half a world away. The 1993 Tell City High School graduate died when he and five other soldiers were shot by an Afghan Border Patrol officer.
He was described by his wife, Tina, as “a very loving, devoted father and husband” whose “life revolved around his career ... he loved his soldiers and took care of them. He loved his job and he died doing what he loved.”
