He was born on July 2, 1952 to James and Peggy Jarrett and attended Sharyland High School, and was a 1975 graduate of Texas A & M School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Jarrett was also a member of the Texas A & M Corps of Cadets for his college career. He served in the United States Army as a Captain following college, where he served in the Army Veterinary Corps at the Military Ocean Terminal on New York Harbor and at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
Dr. Jarrett spent several years associated with the Humane Society of North Texas, and he spayed and neutered over 6,000 animals at their low cost spay/neuter program in Fort Worth. In 1983, he was honored with the Humanitarian of the Year award in recognition of his tireless work with the spay/neuter program, cruelty investigations, and for providing veterinary care for all the animals adopted by the Humane Society. He then established his veterinary practice in Weatherford. Dr. Jarrett owned Parker County VET Hospital and served the Weatherford community for over 30 years, providing unprecedented care in veterinary medicine. He had a great love for veterinary medicine and loved to teach others about animals, particularly English Bulldogs and Pot Bellied Pigs. He, his wife, Lacey, and daughter-in-law, Jinnelle, shared this love for veterinary medicine and worked side by side in serving the clients/animals of the community. He also had a passion for building and doing multiple projects, which has been passed down to his son, Clint, while his passion for veterinary medicine has been passed down to his daughter, Kimberly. He enjoyed being outdoors, which evolved from being an Eagle Scout as a young child, and became a Scout Leader as an adult. Dr. Jarrett's favorite pastimes included playing the guitar, singing, cooking s'mores with family around the campfire, and spending time with his close friends and family.
Pat was preceded in death by his father and mother, James and Peggy Jarrett; and brother, Tommy Jarrett.
Pat is survived by his wife, Lacey Jarrett; children, Dr. Kimberly Jarrett and Clint Jarrett; daughter-in-law, Jinnelle Jarrett; step-daughters, Madison Thibodeau and Audrey Thibodeau; granddaughter, Jordan Johnson; siblings, James Jarrett, Dr. Tad Jarrett, and Jody Jarrett.

We are so saddened to hear of Pat’s passing. He was our vet for 3 dogs for 23 years. He was a great vet and friend. I will always remember his quick wit and his laugh! So infectious. Prayers and love to Lacey and all the Jarretts He will be missed

So sorry to hear about Pats passing—he was a wonderful man, we knew him through our pets-he took care of all our furbabies-we were in there so often that we thought of him and the staff as family!!! He will truly be missed by everyone that knew him—you’re in our prayers

Our sincere sympathy for Lacey and Pat's family. We knew Pat as a young man but he did not change - athletic, musician, hard working and smart as a whip. I thought that I could cover him in flag football and the next thing I knew he caught the ball and scored. He did that academically as well - I went to his Vet School graduation 2 weeks before I even started medical school.

My thoughts and prayers are with Lacey and the rest of his family, all his friends, former coworkers and all the people who were fortunate enough to have him treat their precious pets. He had a generous, good heart. ❤️💐

We met Dr Jarrett in the fall of 2008, at one of his spay and neuter clinics. He showed such care to all of his patients. We have used him sine then, he helped with all of our animals. He helped with our pets as they were passing and did not rush us to make the decision quickly. He will be missed.

A poem that explained Dr. Jarrett’s feelings of Dogs and their lives....just seems fitting for the loss of his life....

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie—
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet’s unspoken prescription
... runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find—it’s your own affair—
But … you’ve given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!).
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone—wherever it goes—for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we’ve kept ’em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long—
So why in—Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

To all the Family, Friends and Lived ones, my deepest sympathies and condolences. May your pain and sorrows cease in this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. ❤️-Chrystal Russell
