He was an Eagle Scout and a lifelong member of First United Methodist Church Texarkana, Arkansas. Trey was also an accomplished pianist. His favorite activity was spending time with many friends and his family.

He was an avid Razorback fan who loved tailgating and was constantly surrounded by his many friends. It has been said that "everybody knows Trey Varner" and he was certainly loved by all who knew him. Trey had an infectious laugh and a magnetic personality. If you were lucky enough to have met him, you would never forget it. He will be forever missed.
