Bert Wayne Varnell Obituary
BERT WAYNE VARNELL went home to be with the Lord on March 31, 2016 at the age of 77. Bert was born to Logan and Clara Varnell in Kotzebue, Alaska on December 21, 1938. After graduating from the University of Alaska in the early sixties, he relocated to Southern California where he met his loving wife Pat who he shared his life with until she went to be with the Lord in 2008. Since the early sixties, Bert worked as a metallurgical engineer in the aerospace industry. His first job was as an engineer on the Apollo program and he worked in aerospace for over 35 years. He later relocated to Murrieta and worked as a quality engineer for a medical device maker in Temecula. Bert loved others deeply and was very generous with his time and support. He selflessly cared for his wife Pat who suffered from Alzheimer's in her later years. In his later years, Bert loved to perform volunteer work for hospice, hospital and church organizations. He also enjoyed spending time with his loving companion LaVerne. Bert is survived by LaVerne; sons Ben of Vallejo, California and Chris of Moorpark, California; six grandchildren and one great grandchild.
