  1. The Ramsey Church family expresses their deep condolences and are keeping Barbara and the family in loving prayers. Vernon is remembered with appreciation for his dedicated service to his church, community and country.

  2. Dan Rucker says:

    I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Vernon at Stony Point School when Vernon served as board chair, and I was headmaster. I knew his family well, and witnessed their great love and respect for their husband/father/ grandfather. Vernon was the most successful and diversified businessman I ever knew. Yet, I could always call on him for anything, and he made himself available immediately with wise advice and strong support. Vernon made a difference in the lives of so many, especially his wonderful family. He truly was a great and good man who will be missed tremendously.
