He received his medical degree from Thiruvanthapuram Medical College and immigrated to the United States in 1977.

Dr. Varghese leaves behind his family, including his beloved wife of 44 years, Anila; daughters, Elizabeth and Anna; son-in-law, Michael Berger; and granddaughters, Maya and Sarah who provided such comfort and joy.
In addition to being a dedicated husband and father, he was equally passionate about his medical career and felt most at home serving his patients and the Springfield community he loved so dearly. He was a member of the boards of the Community Mercy Foundation and CHIEF and a member of the Clark County Medical Society. His legacy lives on with his partners and countless dialysis unit and hospital staff that he treasured like family. He attended Berea Bible Church in Springfield, Ohio and Saint Luke’s Marthoma Church in Margate, Florida. He died on April 13, 2017 after living for two-and-a-half years with cancer. His optimism and positive spirit during his long illness touched everyone lucky enough to know him.
