Scott David Varvel, 34, passed away July 24, 2014, in Pittsburg. Scott was born in Burlington on Nov. 15, 1979. He graduated a year early from Le Roy High School, where he grew up most of his life. He attended a semester at Pittsburg State University for technology. Scott loved to spend time with his son, Zane, play his guitar (he loved thrash metal the best), reading books, watching movies and to just have fun. He will be missed dearly for the times he could make you laugh when you were feeling low. His true passions were spending his time with his son and playing his guitar with his drummer buddy, Jason Jones. When Scott loved, he loved with his entire soul.
He is survived by his beloved son, Zane Tyler Varvel; his parents, Janice and David Varvel, Le Roy; brothers, Kyle Varvel and Donnie Gammons; sisters, Julie Rohrer and Lori Gutsch; aunts, Barbara McDonald, Sandra Mefford, Linda Maloney, Cheryl Canfield and Carol Stair; and uncles, Doug Cranor and Matt Cranor. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Lewis and Dorothea Varvel, who loved him very dearly, and an aunt, Sereina Cranor.
A memorial service was Aug. 2 in Pittsburg in celebration of his life and his music. He will be cremated and will be released into the Neosho River near Le Roy, per his wishes. Memorial contributions can be made for his son, Zane Varvel Education Fund, in care of Bath-Naylor Funeral Home, 522 S. Broadway, Pittsburg, KS 66762.
