Harold Thomas Varn

Obituary Date: Monday, August 7, 2023

Beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Harold Thomas Varn passed away on August 7, 2023.

Harold was born on November 7, 1944 in Savannah, GA and grew up in Hampton, SC with his older brother Buddy. He is preceded in death by his parents Jack Varn and Jennie Thomas Mills. Harold is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Mary Tom; his daughters, Tara Mason (Stacey) and Jennifer Trudeau (Scott); son, Cliff (Kate); step-son, Cleve Long and step-daughter, Lisa Sherrill; his brother, John “Buddy” Varn;  his 11 grandchildren, Blake Lanier, Max Mason, Jacob and Brooklyn Trudeau, Garrett Crane, Ethan and Hudson Varn; Cooper and Avery Long, Jack and Will Sherrill; and 5 great-grandchildren, Riley and Harper Crane, Karson and Maci Lanier, and Stiles Simons.
Harold was a member of what became KA fraternity at Georgia Southern College and was initiated into KA in Statesboro in March of 2022. A few years after college he was a member of the very first graduating class of Northwestern University in Chicago to receive certification in orthotics. Harold worked in that field most of the rest of his life and retired in 2022 as Southeastern Account Executive with Orthomerica Products, Inc. He loved his work and his customers were his friends.
Harold was an amazing man whose personality would light up the room and therefore made many friends wherever he was. He was an avid golfer who had shot his age or below many times and had 6 lifetime holes-in-one. He also loved hunting, fishing, woodworking, cooking, gardening, and especially cheering on the Dawgs. In the last few years he had acquired another “love” and was a Bourbon Brother to three friends in his neighborhood.
Harold was a role model who was adored by his family and beloved by everyone who met him. He loved life and his family and will be missed beyond words.
