He was a great military leader and he and his wife Elaine were true friends to me and my wife Noreen! We celebrated many military functions together. He will be missed.

To the children and extended family , I want to express my sympathy fo the loss of your Father, and Grandfather, ...I have many memories of Uncle Verle, especially those in which he so proudly shared his memories of his military service. We all shared the slides and the history that accompanied them, He loved and was so very proud of his family as well as hjs country and loved coming back to Burlington, and Iowa where most of his relatives resided..His brothers and sisters as well as nieces and nephews looked up to him with great pride . . He will be sadly missed but his memory will forever be in our hearts.
