After suffering several years with dementia, it is with great sorrow we have said goodbye to 81-year-old Richard “Dick” Varsho, Cornell, Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020.

Dick was born June 6, 1939, in Marshfield, where he grew up in the Marshfield area. He served in the U.S. Army and he graduated from UW-Stout.

He was an avid sportsman, teacher, football coach and authored his own book on hunting.

Dick coached football in Auburndale and Cornell, where he also taught history. He retired as a guidance counselor from Glen Flora. He skied the Birkebeiner for several years, and was a legend in the Northwoods, for hunting trophy bucks. Anything outdoors, Dick loved it.

He is survived by his wife – Dorothy; son – Rich (Sherri); grandson – Vince; stepdaughters – Christine, Cindy and Cheryl; stepsons – Doug, Russell and Tom White; and many more family and friends.
