August 24, 1941 – July 14, 2019

Vern was born in the Bronx, New York on August 24, 1941 and passed away in Everett, Washington on July 14, 2019.

He grew up in Waterville, Washington and Moses Lake, Washington, eventually marrying his best friend’s sister Nellie Ann on June 22, 1962. They moved to Seattle when he got a job with Boeing and then to Everett in 1968. He worked for Black & Clausen and Washington Stoveworks for a few years in between the big Boeing layoffs. He was an avid race fan at Evergreen Speedway, RC cars and slot car racing and enjoyed watching the Mariners.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years; daughter Tammy (Jesse); honorary daughter Kim Avery (Reed); brothers Rich, Clyde and Calvin Jr. and brother-in-law George Griffith. He also leaves behind his grandchildren Ariel (Aaron), Kelsey (William), Colby, Haleigh and Cole and great-grandchildren Ocean, Hero, Jonathan, Ellis and baby due in January 2020.
