Vern was born in Langenburg, Saskatchewan on September 24, 1954 to Stanley and Mary Gawel. He was one of three children; his sisters are Rose and Verna.

Vern grew up in Russell, Manitoba. He worked as a repair man at Pash Electric in Russell and Circle M Furniture in Melita. He worked at the Home Hardware in Russell until his death. When he wasn't working, he could be found playing guitar, watching westerns, and fixing things.

Surviving are daughters Sharmanda (Curtis) Gawel, Ashlynn (Blair) Shannon, granddaughter Annaleigh, sister Verna (Terry) Gawel, brother-in-law Bill Pash, as well as many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and close friends.

As per Vern’s wishes there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you fix something that is broken instead of throwing it away- Dad would have liked that. Donations can be made to any charity of your choice.

Thank you to those who have expressed their condolences and to the Braendle-Bruce Funeral Home for assisting with his final arrangements.

Special thank you to Richard for being a wonderful boss and friend, to his sister Verna for all her help and care in his final months and to his friends Ralph and June.
