Laura, Angie and the rest of the family. I first met Vernon in the early 60’s at the old Mattamuskeet lodge along with a lot of his family. He truly was an outdoorsman. I have not seen him in quite a while but when ever I did we had a good time catching up. He loved his children and proud of the grandchildren. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. He has crossed over THE BAR and telling LEE about whats been happening.

Sorry to hear of Vern’s passing. We did not have the honor of knowing him as long as the rest of you. Our son and daughter in-law were neighbors in Manteo. Rick thought a lit of Vern and we got to know him on our visits to NC. Rick, his Dad and Vern swapped stories that I am sure were right on true!!. Prayers for family and friends for Gods peace.

During the short time I got to spend with Capt. I enjoyed his many stories of family and friends. He always had a new recipe for seafood to share and a wonderful big smile. I will miss him and his stories. The community of Ashe county has lost a good friend by his passing.
