He had been a resident of the Tulsa area for the past five years after relocating from Georgia, where he settled down after serving his country honorably and proudly in the United States Army. He was very proud of his service to his country and had a big heart to help others and gave the greatest gift, the gift of life, as an organ donor. He enjoyed many things in his free time, playing golf, traveling on road trips so he could see the scenery, deer hunting and fishing with his son, and cheering on his favorite team the Boston Red Sox. What he truly loved were the memories he shared with his family and friends that he loved so dearly. He will be deeply missed by everyone whose life he touched.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Raymond and Natalye Mooney; and paternal grandfather, James Varasse.
Survivors are his loving son, Raymond Varasse, wife Sharon; his dear father, Pete Varasse (Sidonia); his loving mother, Ellen Briggs (Melvin); his grandmother, Frances Varasse; his favorite aunt, Dolly Look (Raymond); his dearly loved sisters, Robin Haley (Matthew) and Donna Sanchez (Bruce); his loving nieces and nephews, Lindsey Haley, Braden Sanchez, Mariah Penland (Chris), Bryan Sanchez, Justin Haley, Blake Sanchez; and numerous other loving family members and friends.
