Vernon was a very giving and loving person to everyone and never met a stranger. He was a hard-worker with a creative mind and had the talent to go along with it. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, rock hunting, and spending time with his family.
Vernon was the owner of Asheville Sign Company for many years. Later he moved to Mooresville, NC and retired from Donaldson Fabrication before returning to back to Asheville.
The children would like to thank Richmond Hill Rest Home and staff for many years of excellent care. They would also like to recognize Blue Ridge Health and Rehab in Hendersonville, NC for the love and excellent care he received.
At his request the family will be holding a private celebration in his honor. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to ABCCM at “abccm.org”.
