I have many memories of your Pops from the Ankenbruck - Voors Christmas gathering. Your Dad was always good for a joke or a good story. So sorry for your loss as I know you will be missing him.

This is indeed a sad time . Vern who I worked along side of at Parkview Hospital for many years always put a smile on my face. He never took the hospital bs very serious and always made each day interesting. He was so much into race car and rock and roll facts. And couldn’t wait to get back to Harvester so he could retire. I hope to God retirement was all he had hoped it would be for he sure looked forward to it . Now Vern has crossed over to the other side and maybe Saint Peter met him at the pearly gates with a nice race car to drive in the internal clouds of heaven. You will always be remembered Vern as a fun coworker, a great father, a friend and most of all a nice person and what better thing can a person be remembered for but how nice he was in life to others. That’s what really matters the great thoughts people will have to keep of him in their minds and hearts forever. God Bless you and I know you made it as a winner to the finish line
