They made their home in Lexington before moving to Shelton in 1970. Their marriage would later end in divorce. Verne would live the majority of his life in Shelton before moving to Cozad in 2017 when his health started to decline. Verne was a very good mechanic and spent many years as a truck driver working for several trucking companies. He enjoyed tinkering in his garage and was always willing to help others.

Burial will be held at a later date at Robb Cemetery south of Lexington. There will be no visitation, or memorial book signing. The family is honoring Verne’s wish for cremation.
