Gregory Glenn Vernon

Born: 5/30/1947, Provo, Utah
Death: 12/10/2014, Moab, Utah
Service: 12/16/2014, 11:00 am, Evergreen LDS Chapel 7645 Malamute Drive
Interment: 12/16/2014, 2:00 pm, , Horn Cemetery Bailey, CO

Gregory Glenn Vernon, 67 died of natural causes at his home in Moab UT on December 10th 2014. Survived by his 5 children and a stepson who he dearly loved as his own. He was very proud of all his children and especially proud of his 8 grandchildren.

He spent much of his life in Colorado where he loved the mountains and the outdoor adventures it offered. He would also divide his time with his home state of Utah. There he spent the last part of his life enjoying the comfort and warmth of Moab—spending his time with both new friends and old.

Greg attended BY High in Provo UT. He graduated with a bachelors degree from BYU and Juris Doctorite from the University of Denver. With a strong entrepreneurial drive he ran many businesses throughout his life. He was a natural teacher and very knowledgable. No matter the subject he always seemed to know quite a bit about it and he relished in long discussions and debates. Greg also loved the adventure of travel. In fact, he visited or lived in every state in the United States except Hawaii.

As a young man he served a mission for the LDS church in what was then called the Alaskan Canadian Mission. And several times he made return visits to that beautiful land and more often told great stories from his experience there.

He is dearly missed by family and friends across the country.

There will be a memorial celebration at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Evergreen Chapel: 7645 Malamute Drive, Evergreen, CO 80439 at 11:00 A.M. He will be laid to rest at Horn Cemetery, Bailey Colorado

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
