Love you brother Vern

A Memory of Vernon Leslie Roberts by Anne Vaagen


Vern is my younger brother.  He was 4 years younger than I.  Vern and I were great pals growing up.  In fact I went fishing and hiking with him as children will.  We lived near a very nice park in Redwood Falls, MN.  Redwood Falls is where we were born and raised.  We were confirmed in the Norwegian Lutheran Church in Redwood.  It is also where we went to school.  We lived in an apartment above Grandpa Roberts grocery store in the middle of town, so it wasn't far to church or school.  Vern was only a week old when our father was killed in an auto accident.  Our family moved to Tucson, AZ in 1952 for mother's health.  Vern was in the Navy for a number of years, but returned to Tucson.  He got to know a lot of people and he loved to visit with them.  He was a wonderful, cheerful, full of love and life guy  We will miss him dearly.
