Newell, Vernon Thomas passed away peacefully in Vernon on March 20, 2012 in his 90th year.
Vern was predeceased by his wife Marianne and his brother Bill.
He is survived by his daughter Arla Hewlett, his grandson Jason (Jessica) and his wee great grandson Griffon. He was loved by his sisters Marjorie Coueffin, Doreen Sharpe, Jean Beazley (Dick) and his sister-in-law Irene. He also leaves behind a special lady, Marion Martin, with whom he shared many delightful times and trips in his later years.
Vern was born in Vernon on August 2, 1922 and lived there except for his service in the Army, until 1953 when he moved to Kamloops. He began his career as a fireman at the DND Navy Depot and worked there until it closed in 1964. After stints at Mt. Lolo and Victoria he retired from CFB Chilliwack. Vern was a proud fireman and he loved the camaraderie in the fire halls.
He moved back to Vernon after his wife died and enjoyed several more years of an independent and active life. He will forever be remembered and cherished by all who knew him.
He spent his final years at the Gateby Centre. All the family would like to thank the staff for the wonderful care he received. Cremation was in the care of the Vernon Funeral Home.
Later in the spring, a Celebration of Vern's life will be held at a gathering of friends and family in Vernon.
