Paul was born March 15, 1979 in Little Falls, MN to Joan and Joe. He had a larger than life personality and presence and was loved by so many. Many people referred to Paul by his nickname "Paulsy". In July of 2009, Paul was diagnosed with Leukemia.
Paul courageously went through treatments and was in remission at the time of his death. Paul was known to pull up a stool next to a total stranger and say "How you doing ol' boy?" and leave somewhere making a new friend. He had an infectious smile and could make crowds of people laugh with his sense of humor.

Paul is survived by the biggest joy of his world, his 4 yr. old son, Jack; his loving parents, Joan (Dale) Kallenberg of Blaine, MN and Joe Varner of Pierz, MN; his siblings, Kelley (Gabriel) Hill of Prior Lake, MN; JoLaine Varner of Hillman, MN; Cody Varner of Pierz, MN and Brianna Varner of Hillman, MN; his maternal grandmother, Lucille Brummer of Hillman, MN; his paternal grandparents, Robert and Carol Varner of Delta, CO and godparents, Matt and Linda Brummer of Hillman, MN. Paul is also survived by aunts, uncles and many friends who Paul cherished. Paul was welcomed into heaven by his maternal grandfather, Richard Brummer.

The family of Paul Varner would like to thank our friends and family for the love and support shown to our family during this difficult time. Your thoughtfulness will always be remembered. Also, to Holy Family Church Bull Dog Lake, Fr. Justin, musicians and the ladies that prepared the meal thank you. And to anyone we may have forgotten. We also like to thank Emblom-Brenny Funeral Service for the wonderful job.

Joan, Joe and Kelley

I am SOOOO glad that I got to see Paul one more time this fall before this tragic accident! We worked together at the dairy barn up in Lancaster and he was just the life of the party. If it wasn't for Paul I'd probally be married and misserable! Losing Paul is like the losing the sun! He lit up every room he walked into! He was also so happy and had such an uplifting spirit! Prayers and condolences out to his family-mom-dad-sisters-brothers-and especially little Jack... Poor guy! He meant the world to Paul! Hope he remembers his dad as everyone else does! He will be truly missed!

Dear Paul,
I miss you terribly already. Today was so hard but I knew you were there with me throughout it all. I will love you and honor you for the rest of my life. You were my brother, friend and protector. You made me laugh every single time I was with you or talked to you. You weren't on this earth long enough but I am proud to say I got to share all of it with you.

Rest in Peace! Save me a stool in heaven ol' boy.

Love always,
