Vern was born in Medicine Hat on March 1, 1935. He lived a simple life, working hard to provide for his family and found great joy entertaining others with his musical gifts, playing the accordion and guitar with his band and with any others who would join for jam sessions. All that was needed were people who loved making music together and others who loved to listen to their offerings. Vern's favourite music was the good "old fashioned country music”. He is loved and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Vern’s name may be made directly to the charity of one’s personal choice.
