Vernon died at Harborview Medical Center.
From an Administrator at the Neighborcare Ballard Medical Clinic:
“Vernon was a well-loved resident of the Nyer Urness Building for the last few years, where he always took the time to say hi. He was a kind-hearted man who often brought our office candy for patients and staff, and stayed positive even during hard times. He’ll be missed dearly.”
Vernon’s Leaf is placed at Ballard Commons Park. If you have photos or memories of Vernon you’d like to share, please post a comment below.
