I will always remember Vern mowing his lawn with what seemed to be great enjoyment . It was kind of reassuring thing to watch him carefully craft a precise pattern on his lawn, meanwhile, me washing my dishes in the window across the street.

At least the wives on the block knew their husbands would soon be out mowing too, for fear of being put to shame by Vern. He similarly enjoyed washing his vehicle, and using his snowblower in the winter. Vern loved all of his tools and gadgets, but when it came right down to it, he lead a simple life, and enjoyed simple pleasures.
He faithfully attended Mass, and
remained steadfast in his faith in God to the very end.

Thank you for sharing some of your wife's Irises this last month. We will take care of them , enjoy them, and fondly remember you guys when the bloom.

Vern kept his property in immaculate condition. Vern and family were our neighbors across the street for many years. I can still see Vern mowing his steep lawn. He had a electric railroad set with all of the buildings to make it appear like a real city. This was all perfectly arranged on a large plywood table. It was fun to watch it in operation. We visited frequently when working in our yards.
Our Heartfelt Sympathy to the family.
