Joseph Cody Varnadore, 24, of Bryant went to be with the Lord, Thursday, April 21, 2011.
He was a student at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and the University of Arkansas at Morrilton. He looked forward to a career in the oil and gas industry upon graduation in December. Cody enjoyed family, friends, outdoors, hunting and fishing and his dog, Chico.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John Carl and Mildred Varnadore and Donald Joe Laseter; and friends, Drew Renfro and Heath Carpenter.
The Miners are scheduled to play their last conference game today at Pulaski Academy. However, if the game is rained out â€” like Mondayâ€™s game against Horatio â€” head coach Michael Mattox said both teams will likely take a loss.
As of now, Bauxite has an 11-12 overall record and is 2-4 in 4A-7 Conference play. Mattox said a loss will not change his teamâ€™s No. 6 seed in the district tournament, which is set to begin Wednesday in De Queen.
â€śIt wonâ€™t change our situation,â€ť he said, adding that PAâ€™s loss will move De Queen from a three seed to a four, and Ashdown from a four to a three.
