This is such a sad story to hear about vernon. Even though I didn't quite know him, my parents idi, he sang at the wedding. When my mom found out about the loss of vernon she was devestated.

I still can't believe your gone. You are such a good friend. We will remember you at your memorial in Calgary. All you friends will be there to sing, tell stories and remember all the good time we had. You can be with your God now. I love you.

I just read about Vernon and am so sad to hear what happened. I knew Vernon in Calgary when he play with his brother David and Eddie with the band Noah's Arc. He was such a loved person and had so many adoring fans. I'm so shocked !! I send my condolences to his family and friends. I'll think of him oftern and the great times all of us had during those fun years.

So sorry and sad to hear, only just found out today! It's been many years since I've seen Vern.
One great memory (among many) I was looking for a stage name for weeks, just not happy with anything I tried, as I was at Duke's south Country Club Vern walks in, yells 'hey with a K' and it stuck to this day, thanks Vern! RIP

Never forget the time Vern showed up on my doorstep, me being the first person he looked up when he got to calgary. I was just buttoning up my Harley puttin' the exhaust pipes on and we went for a ride and had homemade cheddar cheese burger and homefries at a restaurant in downtown calgary. The next year, I had two bikes, I gave him the keys to the Harley and said "lets go to Canmore for a burger." Who gives a guy the keys to his Harley? A brother that's who. A doobie brother.
