Obituary

Abraham (Abe) K. Varghese was born on August 15th, 1967 in Kottayam, Kerala, India to the late Mr. K.A. Varghese and Mrs. Mary Varghese of the Kanjappallil family from Arpukkara, Kottayam in Kerala, India. The family first moved to Chicago, IL and finally to Oklahoma City, OK in 1983 - the place Abe called home for 37 years. He was the oldest amongst his siblings Annie (Beena) Shepherd and the late Susan Thomas. He was also father to daughter Marissa Varghese and son Andrew Varghese, and uncle to nephew Aaron Shepherd.

After graduating from high school, Abe attended the University of Oklahoma and pursued an advanced degree in radiological science. He graduated from Midwestern State University and practiced as an MRI technologist. A few years later, in 1998, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Despite the diagnosis, he did not let this stop him from being a devoted father to his children. As his condition worsened, and his mobility became more limited, he was still a firm believer in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He faithfully attended church every Sunday, was a part of many Bible studies, and delighted in spending time in God's Word. Even though he faced many adversities in life, Abe made sure to check up on his family and friends and always put others first. His cheerful personality, witty sense of humor, and positive mindset are what he was most admired for. He was truly loved by many.

In 2013, a pancreatic tumor was found that Abe was able to have surgically removed. The surgery was successful in which he did not endure any further cancer-related problems for the next seven years. However, in late 2019, Abe experienced unidentifiable symptoms, and was officially diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer in July 2020. In the midst of this disheartening news, Abe trusted in God’s Will and believed that he would be a living testimony of His faithfulness. Nonetheless, he was comforted in knowing where he will spend eternity.

On September 22nd, Abe passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. He fought the good fight, he finished the race, and he kept the faith.

Heartbroken for the loss of Abey but hopeful in our Faith that we will see him again with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Knowing Abey since I was a child, he was strong headed and strong minded which helped him deal with the many hardships that life brought his way. But I remember his zeal for God's grace and pray that Aunty and Beena and family find comfort in knowing that they will reunite with Uncle, Sue and Abey one day. We love you and pray for you during this time of sorrow but pray for joy in God's time as we remember his life. - Rajan and Family (Atlanta)
