I worked with Vernon at the State 20 some years ago. We were a group of odd ducks and Vernon fit right in. He was a character who had character. In his spare time he volunteered to help others. He was a gentleman and a scholar. I'm sad he's gone too soon.

My sincere condolences. May you find comfort in the loving words at Psalms 94:19

My sincere sympathy to Vernon's family. My late husband, Arman Hatsian, and I were customers of their family's hardware store from 1959 when we were married until it closed. With love, Betty Hatsian Sarubbi

Sending my condolences and prayers to Vern and his family. I enjoyed my many conversations with Vern at DOIT! He was proud of the great work he did at the State, and he worked tirelessly to support his fellow employees. I appreciated Vern’s honesty, his humor, his great attitude and his skill sets, and will be forever grateful I had a chance to rub elbows and work with this good man!

Love, Emily, Olivia, Kristen & Nick
