Vern started his life of music in Alberta at a young age playing in a band with his parents as a child. It was within his love of traditional country music that Vern found his true passion, creating a legacy of stories and memories while making a large group of friends and loved ones. He cherished playing and sharing music with his many brothers and sisters and seeing the Cave brand of music being shared with many generations. He was an entertainer quick to share a joke. He enjoyed watching and playing with children, something his boys have inherited with his love of music. He was a talented Welder / fabricator and seemed able to create anything, including making several of his own guitars combining both his passions. He leaves behind a loving partner that was his best friend and shared many great times with him and supported him fantastically. Many of us have lost our music playing friend but a great jam session is being hosted in the sky. Thanks for the memories created with a man that truly followed his passion.
A Potluck Dinner/Dance will take place at 5:00m on Sunday, December. 20, 2015 at the Brock Activity Centre 1800 Tranquille Road.
