Lee Roy Varnado
July 16, 1969 - March 11, 2023
Lee Roy Varnado, born in Hammond, LA July 16, 1969, passed into his eternal rest in Enon, LA on March 11, 2023 at his sister and brother-in-law's home. If you knew anything about Lee then you knew how much he loved his family and friends. You also know what a character he was - always cracking a joke on someone just to see their reaction. Lee has been sick for a very long time, but he is now completely healed and has a brand new body and a perfect set of lungs.
Lee Roy is survived by his son Shawn Walker and wife Beth and his two beautiful granddaughters Lexie and Lizzie. Lee was so proud to be Shawn's daddy but even more so to be called PawPaw by his "little angels". Lee is also survived by his brother Jeff Rhodus (Jolene); his sisters Becky Varnado (Todd) and Julie Mizell (Jeff); brother-in-law Ricky Ballard; nephews Joshua Ballard (Mindy), Justin Ballard (Jessica). Tommy Mizell (Ana), Derrick Barber (Missy) and Ethan Rhodus; nieces Hanna Ballard, Angelica Magee (Nick) and Grace Mizell; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents LeRoy Varnado, Bessie and William Rhodus; his sister Elizabeth Ann Ballard; and his grandparents.
Lee knew his time left of Earth was coming to an end, and he made his earthly preparations but more importantly Lee made his eternal preparations. Lee accepted the gift of salvation from His Savior Jesus Christ and was not ashamed to share that faith with any and all - even if they didn't want to hear it. Lee loved Jesus and would often say, "Man I don't know how I ever made it through life without Him, but I'm so glad He saved an old sinner like me." If Lee could share one last thing with anyone it would be the knowledge that Jesus Loves You and He died for You, don't waste that gift.
