Vernon served this country in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War as a medic and cook until his honorable discharge. Vernon enjoyed watching TV, especially old westerns or maybe spending a couple hours at the casino trying his luck, sitting down to try and complete his jigsaw puzzles or spending an afternoon playing solitaire or sheepshead with family and friends. He also was very proud of serving as a mentor for kids from the area from little on to their teenage years. Those who will cherish his memory include his siblings: Gerald (Gertrude) Kolb of Spencer, Marianna Gennett of Marshfield, Paul (Ellen) Kolb of Stratford, Cathie (Giles) Thieme of Marshfield and Peter Kolb of Marshfield; his sister-in-law, Shirley Kolb; his faithful canine companion “Pabst” and many nieces nephews and dear friends. Vernon was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Grace; an infant brother, Patrick and another brother, Dennis.
