March 28, 1940 -
August 18, 2012

Verne was born March 28, 1940 in Auburn, Washington and called by his Lord on Saturday, August 18, 2012.
His love for the weather was electrifying. He spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy and continued his career at the National Weather Service until his retirement.
He loved and treasured his time with his family. He was a great and loving husband to Carmelita; a very wonderful and spoiling father to Christian and Veronica; a caring brother to Marion Jr., Beatrice, John and Jan, and an amazing friend. He left so many memories that touched our hearts.
He was preceded in death by his father, Marion Sr.; mother, Mildred; stepfather, Lloyd; and brother, John.
