So very sorry to see this notice. Vernon and I were good friends during our days at Huntsville High School.
He was always a source of common sense and good humor.
Vaya con Dios!

Vernon had such a great sense of humor and was extremely intelligent. But he had such a gentle soul and was always willing help others in any way he could. He loved his son very much. So sorry for your loss, Michael.
