David Karl Varner
December 15, 1948 ~ May 5, 2022
We regret to announce the passing of David Karl Varner, 73, of Glenburn, North Dakota, on May 5, 2022. David passed away, surrounded by his loved ones in San Antonio, Texas after an unfortunate but brief illness. David is predeceased by his ex-wife Josefa Varner, brother Craig Varner and his mother/father Virginia and Karl Varner. He is survived by his sister, Marilyn Flook, his son, David Varner, daughter-in-law, Stephanie Varner and his two grandsons’: Graysen and Braxten. David was a veteran of the Vietnam and first Gulf War. For his service, he earned two Meritorious Service Medals and one Commendation Medal. He served honorably and with distinction in the United States Air Force, achieving the rank of Master Sergeant. His experience in the Air Force over two decades played a very important role in his life. He frequently pointed out that the Air Force taught him the value of discipline, teamwork, and investing in a cause greater than himself. He would often explain to loved ones and friends how these values contributed to his success not only as a freelance Artist and consummate professional, but most importantly as a husband, father, and grandfather. The memorial service with full Military Honors for David Karl Varner will commence on Friday, June 03, 2022, at 10:15am at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery (1520 Harry Wurzbach Rd. San Antonio, TX 78209).
