He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Norma Jane Casey Varner. She was his most beloved caregiver for several years in his battle with Alzheimer's. There are no adequate words to express her kindness, patience, and tender care for Carmon. She faced numerous challenges of every kind with love, wit, and God's grace.

He served two assignments in the army, at the end of WWII and the Korean conflict. He retired from AT&T Teletype in Little Rock. In his earlier adult life, he farmed at his home in the Red Hill Community near Romance. He was a member of First Baptist Church in Vilonia for over 50 years. Carmon enjoyed camping at the JFK campground on the Little Red River as well as spending time in Mountain View, gardening, and spending time with his family.
