Dr. Bruce L. Varon, D.C., BHS 1975

Dr. Bruce L. Varon, D.C., BHS 1975


Bruce Varon, beloved father, brother, son, and doctor of chiropractic, passed away May 16, 2012 at the age of 55 in his Burbank home.


Bruce grew up in Burbank and for over 25 years he treated countless patients at Varon Chiropractic Center. He cared deeply about his patients and they can testify that Bruce loved to talk and share his wisdom with those around him. With his hands and his heart he helped heal thousands of people.

He loved his role as doctor for the Burbank High School Football team. He rarely missed standing on the sidelines of the Burbank High football field, watching his beloved team play. He especially enjoyed games where Burbank High played against rival Burroughs High. Bruce was a long-standing member of Burbank Kiwanis Club. He was often referred to by his fellow Kiwanis as “Mr. Pancake Breakfast” because of how he enjoyed chairing their annual pancake breakfast fundraiser.

Bruce loved his family and friends. He always tried to instill in his children life lessons that they could live by. He loved sharing what he had learned from his father, Leo Varon, and brother, Greg Varon. Nothing made him happier than riding horses with his daughters and son and riding his Harley Davidson.

Bruce is survived by his daughters, Destina and Lauren; son, Sam; sister, Michele; and mother, Bette. He is predeceased by his father, Leo, and his brother, Gregory Varon.

A service will be held at Mount Sinai Park in the Hollywood Hills, near Burbank, on Tuesday, May 22nd at 12 noon. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in his name to Burbank High School Booster Club or the Burbank Kiwanis Club. Please visit Mt. Sinai Memorial Park’s website at mountsinaiparks.org where you may leave your comments for the family about your memories of Bruce.

  2. He was my chiropractor for years. I recently ran into him at the pharmacy about 2 weeks before he passed, and he looked well. This is such a shock.

  4. I just found out that Dr. Varon passed away this past year; I was finishing school across the country when he passed. Dr. Varon helped me with a major injury at the start of my junior track season, and I ended that season not only running, but setting a 20+ second personal best that would later get me recruited by college coaches. I certainly owe a lot of thanks to him for that. RIP.

  5. Bruce Varon a very special man, indeed! I was his patient for about 10 years and and a friend until he passed. I had the priviledge of baby sitting his kiddos and teased him for his old fashion middle name. Deeply missed!
