Celebration of Life
Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Bardstown United Methodist Church Life Center

Winton Don Vernon, 21, of Bardstown, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Sunday, Aug. 4, 2019. He was in an automobile accident, and succumbed to head trauma and spinal chord injuries after being airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital. He was a solid Christian and now is peacefully in Heaven.
He was a member of Bardstown United Methodist Church where he played guitar and piano in the praise and worship band prior to moving off to college.
He loved all aspects of music. Winton was a fun loving, charismatic, funny, sweet and caring young man that was taken away too soon. He will be missed by everyone that knew him. Rest in peace, until we meet again.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, John Vernon.
Winton is survived by his parents, Tom and Dee Vernon, of Bardstown; his brother, Paden Vernon, of Bardstown; maternal grandparents, Don and Elsie Matteson, of Bardstown; paternal grandmother, Mary Ellen Vernon, of Arvada, Colo.; aunts and uncles, Dr. Charles (Mary Sue), of Anamosa, Iowa, Gina Klawitter, Denver, Nancy (Kelle) Hickam, of Arvada, Colo., Mark (Kim) Matteson, Solon, Iowa; cousins, Claire (Steve) Butcher, and daughter, Madeleine, of Chicago, Greg (Melissa) Vernon, of Provo, Utah, Rebecca Vernon, of Anamosa, Iowa, Charlie Vernon, of Coralville, Iowa, Ashley Matteson, of Bloomington, Ill., Ian (Caitlin) Matteson, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Taylor, John and JuJu Hickam, of Arvada, Colo., and Eileen Klawitter, of Denver.
A Celebration of Life open house is planned at Bardstown United Methodist Church Life Center on Wednesday, Aug. 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
