Jose Jubie Varoz

December 17, 1938 - June 30, 2020

Our dear Jubie has passed on, but his spirit will live on forever in our hearts.

Born in New Mexico to Benigno and Carolina Varoz. Jubie was raised in Salt Lake City. Jubie was a serviceman beyond his years in the Air Force and Salt Lake City Fire Department. He retired as captain after 30 plus years. He was always proud and reflected often on the camaraderie gained through his duty.

His hands reflected many lifetimes. His down-to-earth and approachable style kept him young at heart. He was always chatting with people walking by his home in Millcreek and grew close with neighbors, mostly through sharing backyards, gardens, songs and stories. Jubie’s ambition was relentless in he and his wife’s garden, no matter the heat from the Utah sun. He was an enthusiastic and dedicated NASCAR fan.

Jubie is preceded in death by his parent and his siblings Bel, Ben, Lupe and Pat. Jubie is survived by his children, siblings and wife, Gaylene Varoz. His love for his grandsons, Ryken and Brexden, kept him lively and full of purpose, love and happiness. They were the Three Amigos. They will forever cherish the time they spent with their grandpa and countless memories made with him forever.

A wake in Jubie’s honor will be celebrated at a later date. Please check back for updated service information.
