Family and friends have paid tribute to a Marshland St James man following his death.

32-year-old Andrew Jarvis sadly died following a road traffic collision at St Johns Fen End near Wisbech on Tuesday 24 November.

Micha McGuffog, Andrew’s fiancé, 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 – 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.
