Vernon Ray Stockwell

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Scott Self on August 11, 2014:

It has been a long time since Vernon passed away. I was at Jon Severson's house when Jon, who was away, called home and I found out. Hoss and I went to Baton Rouge to be in the funeral. We met Vernon's family and carried him to his final resting place. Vernon was real. What you saw I what you got. No falsehoods here. What an example for all of us to follow from one so young to leave us. I still think of him now and again and only remember what a great guy he was. I can only imagine how much the world missed by losing him so young.
