In Loving Memory


Vernon Earl Stearns passed away peacefully at Valleyview Care Centre in Medicine Hat on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at the age of 96 years. Predeceased by his wife Eileen in 2012, Vern is survived by his daughter Linda, son Arthur (Sandi Hill), grandson Lyle (Aaryn-Marie) and three great-grandsons; numerous nieces, nephews and their families also mourn his passing.

Vern was born in Carstairs, AB to Marshall and Lulu Stearns, the youngest of four sons. He attended school in Carstairs and later trained as an electrician at what would become SAIT. Vern worked for Warrack Electric in Calgary for many years and later for Rae-Dell Industries. In 2009 he and his wife retired to Medicine Hat. Vern loved spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed music, especially fiddles and attending live music events. A firm favorite was Ye Olde Jar Bar. Vern was quite a shy, quiet man with a very dry sense of humor. He loved to tease and be teased.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, no funeral will be held at this time. A Memorial Service will be announced at later time.

Clark and I send you our sincere sympathy. Your dad was just 14 days younger than my dad!! I have a feeling they would have been best buddies. Our hearts go out to you and yours.
