It's so sad to hear this.
I had hoped, as we all did, that this was getting under control and we would be seeing his smiling face at Waterford again this summer.
His support and enthusiasm for Waterford Hills will truly be missed.
My deepest sympathy for his family.

Such sad news
Vern was such a driving force at Waterford. His support for the club was always second to none. I was always impressed with his eagerness to help out anybody that needed anything. He will be missed by all but his presence will always be with us.

So sad to hear of the loss to our WHRRI family, our sympathy goes out to the family, but we can take comfort in knowing it was a life well lived & enjoyed, & now he is racing on a track with perfect conditions.

There are no words that I can express. Vern was so supportive of myself, my son and family during the years I raced at Waterford. He treated us like we were his own family. Waterford has definately lost a Great Husband, Father, and Supporter. God Bless and Prayers to My Friend and his family at this time.

Our hearts are broken, but Vern's spirit is alive within us.
Godspeed Vern.

What a shock and loss to the entire WHRRI community. Vern was a real ambassador for the club and will be dearly missed.

My deepest sympathies go out to Marianne, Dorothy and their families as well as the entire staff at Southern Motors. He was a generous and kind soul who loved his family immensely.

A retired Pontiac police officer, a successful businessman and just a great human being. His legacy is simple: he had a positive impact on the people around him. Some of the guys at Southern can tell you first hand the impact he had on their lives by loving them and treating them like sons.

It's comforting to know he is now with his maker and no longer has to deal with a failing body. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to know Vern and spend time with him over the last 10 years.
