He was very active in many civic organizations including many veterans affairs. In 1975 Vernon purchased a small triangle of land just outside of his funeral home, built a veterans memorial and began the Ross Hollywood Veterans Day Parade to honor all veterans. He held the annual event until his death, which tragically occurred on November 11, 1983, the day of the Veterans Day Parade. Ross Hollywood Chapel continues the hold this special event every Veterans Day.

"At such a hard time we were so grateful for Astin, our funeral director. She was patient, helpful, thoughtful and kind from beginning to end. The chapel was clean and decorated tastefully with the perfect amount of lighting. We only had the viewing in the chapel but were given a more than adequate amount of time for that. we are happy with our experience and would recommend Ross Hollywood Chapel to others looking for funeral arrangements."
