Steve Earl Vargo

Memphis, TN

Steve Earl Vargo, 70, went home to be with the Lord on June 9, 2018 after a brief battle with cancer. Steve was born on October 13, 1947. A life-long Memphian, he graduated from Overton High School and then Memphis State University. He had careers in teaching and warehouse/logistics management before beginning his true career working in bookstores in the Memphis area. A voracious and knowledgeable reader, Steve loved and collected all types of books and was never happier than when he was deep in his latest one. He also loved and appreciated music, particularly classical, and all movie genres.

Steve is survived by his mother, Helen Warf; his four siblings, Mike Vargo, Jo-Ellen (Bill) Qualls, Barbara Gilmer, and Margaret (Jim) Lewis; five nieces, one nephew and two great-nieces.

Steve was a member of Cherry Road Baptist Church, 1421 Cherry Road, where his family will receive visitors on Saturday, June 16 from 2:30 to 3 p.m. A memorial service celebrating his life will begin at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Steve's memory to Cherry Road Baptist Church or to the charity of the donor's choosing.
