James VargoOctober 9, 1935 ~ December 3, 2017 (age 82)
Jim Vargo, 82, passed away December 3, 2017. He was born October 9, 1935 in Tunkhannock, PA to the late Michael and Theresa Vargo. Jim was an artistic brick mason that enhanced many gorgeous homes with his craft, including two of his own homes which the family has enjoyed for 44 years. He loved their home on the hill where he also built a special ‘Pac Shack’ for his grandkids to enjoy, maintained a beautiful yard with his cherished John Deere tractor, and trained his dogs Casey & Candee.
Besides his parents, Jim was preceded in death by son, Kris; brothers, Julius, Michael, Joseph, and Ernie; sisters, Grace, Rose, Margaret, and Ethel. He is survived by the love of his life, Jean (Saylor), whom he met in 1956 at the Waterloo Drive-In Restaurant. He also leaves behind to honor his memories, sons, Mike (Susie) and Tim Vargo; grandchildren, Rachael, Kalli, Teven, Abbie and Drew Vargo; sister, Gladys (Jerry) Hansen; and many nieces, nephews, and loving relatives.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Crossroads Hospice and the staff of Arden Courts of Bath for the compassion and care you gave to Jim and our family.
