Vernon always had a smile on his face. He loved collecting guns and knives, assembling model cars, re-enactments of medieval times where he would dress up in full armor with sword and shield. He enjoyed riding four-wheelers at Smurf Woods flying through the mud, and was an avid motorcycle rider. His cats were his babies, and on the weekends he would spend his mornings drinking coffee with his best friends Larry and Amy. Most of all Vernon was a simple man who showed everyone he met love, kindness, and generosity.
Pallbearers: Larry Powell II, Andy Conover, Jimbo Powell, Tony Rickard, Larry Powell Sr., David Finlaw Jr., Richard Finlaw.
