Resident of Danville
Vern was born in Lansing, Michigan. He was a pest resident of Alamo and now Danville, CA. He was called to his eternal Savior and Lord while his wife, Connie, and daughter, Diane, were by his side. Vern succumbed to pneumonia while also battling cancer and chemotherapy treatments.
Vern is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Constance Neller. He is the beloved father of 4 children, Dr. Kenneth Neller (pre-deceased) and wife Barbara, Dennis Neller, Diane Neller-Vaughn and husband Joe, Brett Neller and wife Irene, six grandchildren (Colin Neller, Seth Neller, Christopher Vaughn, Lauren Vaughn, Jacob Neller, and Mitchell Neller), two great granddaughters (Juliette Neller and Violet Neller), three siblings and many beloved nieces and nephews.
Vern graduated from Douglas HS in Gardnerville, Nevada. He served his country in the Navy during the Korean War on the cruiser USS Toledo. Vern left the service after 7 years. Vern attended California State University Long Beach and graduated from California State University Hayward. Vern had a 26-year career with the Ohrstrom Holding Group. Their acquired companies took him from Los Angeles to the Bay Area to Huntsville, Alabama and back to the Bay Area. He began as an accountant and progressed to a vice presidency and CFO role of a major farm implement and equipment manufacturer. Several years later he began a career as a Financial Officer for the Health Services Department of Contra Costa County from which he retired in 2000. During retirement he has enjoyed the activities of golf, travel, VFW and SIRS (Sons in Retirement). He was devoted to his God, his family and his country.
