Just like his daughter was in my life for 10+ years, so has Jarry Avants. He was a good man that loved his family and made so many sacrifices for them. It’s unfortunate to see such a strong soul leave. I send my love and condolences to his family as they go through a very emotionally taxing and mournful time. Jarry Avants will be loved and remembered.
