  1. Worked with Vernon until I retired Dec 03. Always willing to step up and get things done. Very creative chef. Had a great appetite for interesting foods. Enjoyed life to its core. So lucky to have had Vernon cross my life path. Sad we lost him so young. My sympathies to everyone that this loss has touched.

  2. My condolences to his family. He was a nice and sweet man. We talked a lot about music of all genres. He also had a good sense of humor! Vernon passed away, too young, and will be missed.

  3. I grew up with Vernon. So sorry to hear of his passing.

  4. I just learned of Vernon’s passing. We go way back and I am just stunned. I will never forget the great times we had, from exploring Huckies cave to woriing at the Printers Home together to camping to playing with my late son Jesse. He had a Viking spirit.
