George Joseph “Big George” DeVarennes, Sr., 74, of Simsbury, beloved husband of Virginia (Flores) DeVarennes, died Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at St. Francis Hospital. He was born October 8, 1944 in New York, NY, son of the late George Almanzo and Josephine (Konsuit) DeVarennes and had lived in Monroe, NY prior to moving to Simsbury seven years ago. Mr. DeVarennes was an Operations Manager for Interstate for many years prior to his retirement. George enjoyed sightseeing and traveling to Peru. He was an avid fan of the NY Giants, the NY Yankees, and horseracing. In his twenties, he had become a semi-pro bowler and prior to health restraints, continued to bowl and play golf as his hobbies. He also enjoyed getting to know people during his bartending years in the 70’s and 80’s and most of all loved to spend time with family.

In addition to his loving wife Virginia of 51 years, he is survived by his son, George J. DeVarennes, Jr. and his wife Denise of Simsbury; his daughter, Virginia J. Zecchini and her husband Salvatore of Cromwell; his sister, Patricia Smyrychynski; his grandchildren, George J. DeVarennes III, Lila F. DeVarennes, Brianna M. Zecchini, and Anthony M. Zecchini; his brother-in-law, Manuel P. Flores; his sister-in-law, Amelia I. Flores and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a sister, Josephine Pacifico.

His family will receive friends on Tuesday, October 1st from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury. Funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, October 2nd at St. Mary’s Church, 942 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury. Burial will follow in the Simsbury Cemetery.
