Steven James Varga

June 29, 1957October 3, 2020

Steven James Varga passed on the morning of October 3rd 2020 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, in Vernon BC. If you asked a hundred people who Steve Varga was, they’d all tell you a different thing. A prolific gardener. A backyard wrestler. A bearded superhero. A wicked clown. A guitar master. A bear tamer. A lost child of an alternate universe. A prophet of the streets. Steve was many of these things, perhaps all of these things; and much more. He was born on June 29th 1957, to Les (deceased) and Ilene Varga; in London Ontario. He became an older brother to his surviving sibling, Dave. He produced and was survived by a beautiful daughter before continuing his journey to become a loving Husband to his wife, Fran. A proud Father to his children, Carney (and Beau) and Aiden (and Amanda), and a humbled Grandfather and Great-Grandfather to a formidable clan: Brenna, Colby, Courtnay, Donny, Sarra, Jesska, Sam, Luna, and Athena. Services are being held at at 2:00pm. October 13th 2020 in Vernon, BC. Please make a donation to your local food bank in Steve’s memory.

My deepest condolences to Steve’s beautiful family.

To my cousin Steve,

I hold in my heart many fond memories from our childhood, a favourite is one of the times when our families visited at Gramma and Grampa’s house, you played your guitar and sang Supertramp’s “Give a Little Bit” ... I was in awe and to this day, I still think of you when I hear that song.

Play on Cousin.

Big brother
I remember looking up to you
time spent together was the best
Living free like a bird, in skies of blue
But now it’s time to rest
Love & peace always❤️
