He attended rural school at Hedlund School in Dewey Township and graduated from Fairdale High School in 1941. He farmed with his father near Fairdale. Vernon was united in marriage to Shirley McDaniel--his "Sweetie"- -on June 23, 1963 at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church, rural Fairdale, ND. The couple fanned in Dewey Township retiring in 1985.

Vernon loved anything to do with horses. He hosted many open horse shows at his family farm and enjoyed be- ing a judge on occasion as well. Any horse in Vemon's barn lived like royalty. Vernon's four grandchildren were the light of his life. He enjoyed having them as an audi- ence for many fam- ily shenanigans. The more the grand- children laughed, the more he clowned around. They have many priceless memories of these times with their grandpa. He was always interested in everything they were doing and always said goodbye to them with the words "Be good." Vernon is survived by his daugh- ters: Suellen (Tim) Zenker, Wah- peton, ND; Audrey (Rory) Lorenz, Lawton, ND; four grandchildren: Chase and Abby Zenker and Shel- by and Haley Lorenz; sister, Glori- anne (Robert) Gustafson, Casper, WY.
