Vernon Ray Hardin
May 14, 1945 – August 8, 2016
On the 8th of August, 2016, our family saw the passing of our beloved PaPaw, of Vinton. Now per his wishes, that is the last bit of crying over him we will do.
If you wish to stop by, come to Vern’s Pool Hall; his ashes will be by the pool table. There may be a bluegrass song or two playing. You will automatically become a NASCAR fan. You will have to swear that UT will win the championship. You will have to try and out do us in telling tall tales. Losers of pool games have to come up with the winning lotto numbers.
But most important, you have to follow Vernon’s house rules if you stop by. Come in with a warm, kind soul, a twinkle in your eye and a sense of humor. You will be welcomed by the extended family from Tennessee, Michigan, New York, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia.
