We met Terry though the SVCC. He was exactly as friendly and witty as mentioned. We grew to know and love him. He seemed like family all the years we were blessed to share with him and Julie. He will be greatly missed.

Rest in Peace Mr. Varraux. You were more than just our neighbor for 35+ years, you were dear friend of our family. There were many summer days growing up that I remember you and my dad hanging out as neighbors do just shooting the breeze over a cold beer or 2 talking about the neighborhood, us kids or more often who was better the Steelers or the Browns. My condolences to Julianna (aka Mrs. Varraux to us), Terry, Kim and the entire Varraux family, Terry will be sorely missed.
