Anthony R. Varela was born on April 9, 2018 in Pueblo, Colorado to Anthony J. and Kisha (Clark) Varela. He passed away unexpectedly on July 18, 2018 at Arkansas Regional Medical Center in La Junta, Colorado at the age of 3 months.

Anthony had such an adorable laugh and smile that spread across his soft, chubby cheeks. He loved to play and swing.  He was entertained by music and dancing as well as watching his brother and sister play ball.  His life here on Earth was too short but the joy he brought to family and friends will live on forever.

Anthony is survived by his parents, Anthony J. and Kisha Varela of Las Animas, Colorado; brother, Armondo Varela; sister, Annabelle Varela; half-sister, Elizebeth Pappan; grandparents, Erasmo and Dorothy Diaz, Nancy Clark, and Anthony Varela; aunt, Renee (Josh) Sandoval; uncles, Chris Varela and Sam Clark; and cousins, Yasmine and Breanna Hernandez, Shawn Varela, and Dustin and Jason Clark.
