Carol, our heartfelt condolences to you and all of your family on the passing of Vern. Vern was not only my first manager, after training, but he was my mentor, coach and inspiration in those early years of my bank career. I had the privilege to be a member of Rotary at the same time as Vern, watching his dedication to the community only strengthened my own. Treasure all the great memories of Vern knowing we will do the same,
Ray & Cathy Tynski

I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Vern. I have many good memories of all the years we worked together at Scotiabank. I will miss seeing him grocery shopping on fridays. My deepest condolences go out to you Carol and family.
