    My step dad from 1975-1994? You taught me how to do too many things, very young. You were fun and terrifying at the same time. RIP Vern.

    Over the years Vern really grew on me . He will be very missed by my family especially my mother , Cynthia. Knowing he is with Christ in Heaven where there is no cancer or pain gives us all peace. If there are boats in Heaven, I am sure that he is already boating and enjoying his eternal life.

    No one would ever say that Vern (my uncle) didn't live life to the fullest. His spirited charm and charismatic energy allowed him to follow various paths in life touching many along the way. I feel grateful that I had him as my uncle and, whenever he was near, I felt I also had him as a friend. He will me missed by many. Lovingly, Tasha

    As usual big brother you have gone and led the way to some new and exciting adventure.Only the two of us can and could understand and appreciate the spoken and unspoken conservations we had together over the past 66 years. At times you were not my brother but my father and at other times my son. I will miss all three of you. Your loving little Brother Clint
