WILLIAM L. VARNEY
Obituary


DETROIT -- William L. Varney, 78, died peacefully on Monday, Aug. 13, 2012, at his home in Detroit.

He was born in Lewiston on May 28, 1934, the son of Edward and Florence (Libby) Varney. He owned and operated the Western Auto Store in Pittsfield for several years. He was also employed by Cianbro, Peachey Builders and later retired from Good Will-Hinckley School in 1999 as the superintendent of maintenance.

Bill was the kind of man who would always lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying both fishing and hunting. He also enjoyed working in his wood shop. He was a great teacher and role model for his family. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and adored Khloe, Scott and Rochelle's dog. Bill was an active member of the Kiwanis for more than 35 years. He was an Eagle Scout and was involved in the Boy Scouts of America for 25 years. He will be lovingly missed and remembered.

He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Valerie Varney, of Detroit; children Gale Berry and husband Ed, of Kenosha, Wis., Tina Grady, of Smithfield, N.C., Lori Ring and husband Frank, of Detroit, Dawn Berry and husband Brian of Kent, Wash., Mark Bickford, of Denver, Colo., Glenn Varney and wife Pat, of Pittsfield, and Scott Varney and wife Rochelle, of Pittsfield; 13 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; brother Richard Varney and wife Barbara, of South Paris; and sister, Jackie Lothrop, of Auburn.

He was predeceased by his parents; two sons, Grey Varney and Kevin Bickford; and a brother-in-law, Murray Lothrop.

The family will receive friends from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, 2012, at Shorey-Nichols Funeral Home, 191 Hartland Ave., Pittsfield. A funeral service will be at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 18, 2012, at the funeral home with the Rev. Bill Johnson officiating. Interment will follow at Village Cemetery, Peltoma Avenue, Pittsfield.
