I have an entire lifetime of memories of my Uncle LaVerne, and each one is of a man with a huge smile and a contagious laugh. He never met a person he didn’t immediately call “friend”. He loved spending time hunting and fishing, and he cherished his family. He will be sorely missed - he was a truly gentle spirit. May he Rest In Peace.

I am unable to nail down one memory. I was blessed to have LaVerne spread throughout my life. He will always be considered family at our house.

One of the kindest, most caring and understanding people I have ever known. We should all strive to be more like him.

I will moss you,
Little Joey

LaVerne was one of the kindest people with the sweetest smile that I've ever known. Gary loved him and they had enjoyed many memories from hunting to football trips together. After marrying Gary, I was privileged to enjoy this sweet man and Polly along with so many other wonderful friends. He will be missed. Maybe he and Gary can go hunting together in Heaven.
My deepest sympathy to Polly and family.
Love,
Virginia Reimers

LaVerne was one of the happiest men I've ever knew. Always greeted you with a giant smile. And asked how you and yours were doing. Truly concerned for everyone else's well being. He leaves us to fill a big void. Today, let us all be a bit more like him. Smile bigger. Care more. And always, always hug our loved ones goodby. You will be missed Uncle LaVerne.
