Vern was an employee of Ginn Construction several times during his stay in Caldwell. Gary said he was one of the best tile layers he had ever had on his crew. Later he and Ryan joined forces and did several jobs in the area. Our condolences to all of his family. Gary & Clara Ginn

Vern and I worked together and became very good friends. Our conversations were always lively, whether about his Oklahoma Sooners vs. my OSU Cowboys or his artistic skills. I am truly blessed to have had him as my friend. He will be deeply missed. My prayers go to his family as they deal with this loss.

Vern and I were friends in school at Oklahoma State, and years beyond, although I have not seen him in recent years. I am deeply saddened to learn of his early demise. I have many great memories with Vern. He played an influential role in the early years of my life and I will always remember him.
