I knew Vern from high school. He had a tough time growing up in Holday, Utah circa 1960.

Bless his heart.

Vern was my "fellow, mellow, cello" buddy.  We traveled together to Granite Youth Symphony rehearsals, and I always remember he was willing to do anything to make me laugh.  I happily responded!  He reminded me that all my associations at Olympus were to be cherished -- even those wonderful people in music with me.

I lived with and loved Vern. We lived together and were boyfriends in a SF in the late 70's.  I remember comforting Vern many times after his phone conversations with his father.  He just wanted to be loved by his family, appreciated as the talented, kind, loving man that he always was to me.  I am sorry I lost touch and was not there for Vern in his last years.
