William (Bill) Jarrett went home to be with the Lord on August 23, 2020. According to John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
Bill was born February 14, 1954 to Truman and Gail Jarrett in Providence, R.I. He was the loving husband of Yvonne Jarrett. He graduated from Hope High School in 1973. An avid sports player, while there he made All State in basketball as well as All Conference in football. He then went on to play basketball at Johnson and Wales and Post Junior College where he graduated with an Accounting degree.
With enough stories to last a lifetime, perhaps one of if not his favorite was of being a recovering addict. After receiving Christ he found new meaning in his life, with his health restored and a love for God, family and self. Bill after receiving treatment at the Salvation Army went on to work for them holding various positions for over 20+ years helping others to know Christ and to recover from addiction, retiring in 2019.
On November 10th, 2019 he became an ordained Deacon at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Providence, R.I. His love for God and his servant heart brought his life full circle! With not one timid bone in his body, he let you know where he came from and now more importantly where he was going!
