My father in-law was a man of little words and I can’t remember a single time he made me feel sad, bad or mad. He was a good man with a mellow way. He was a hard worker and enjoyed his family more and more the older he got. He did so much for complete strangers and was friendly with everyone. Kevin and I share their same wedding date, which I came to enjoy overtime. I have thanked Father God many times for them both (Vern & Betty) being in my life from a young age. I was basically their 5 child and they helped Kevin and me so much through the years. Vern will be lovingly remembered forever in my mind and heart and I believe we’ll all be together again one glad day.

Grandpa Vern was a very wonderful father & grandfather to all of his children & grandchildren along with Betty (grandma) he has headed and herded this family along and always had time for the kids. He always insisted we get together at least once a year to preserve our family relationships. He will be missed by all who knew him especially the grands and great grandchildren whom he loved unconditionally. Fair winds and following seas papa...

Laverne was such a kind man. I will always remember him mowing his grass while smoking his pipe. Wishing the family strength at this difficult time.

Dear Betty, Michael, Sue and Family ,

We are so sorry to hear of Verne's passing. In addition to being a devoted Husband and Father, his life was admirable in that he served his country in the military and for many years he charitably dedicated his time to the St. Vincent de Paul Society and Mary Immaculate Church. May he rest in peace.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you,

Kip and Irene and Family
