Later in life, he coached his daughters' softball teams, rode motorcycles and was passionate about stock car racing. He worked for West Fraser for over four decades and brought his patience and sense of fairness to those he led as Head Saw Filer.
His family wishes to let his friends and family know that Vern's finally resting place will be on Pioneer Trail in the Tranquility Gardens in Quesnel.
