Surviving are four children, Kimberly A. (Robert) Hanes of Waterloo, NY, Brenda L. (Henry Watson) Crain of Sweden Valley, Kevin L. Crain of Rochester, NY, and Terry W. (Paula) Crain of Coudersport; six grandchildren; and several great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents and wife, Vern was predeceased by a son, Todd A. Crain.

Friends may call from 11am to 1pm on Monday, July 31, 2017 at the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home, 118 South Union Street, Shinglehouse, where funeral services will follow at 1pm with Pastor Michael Reeves of the North Eulalia Baptist Church, officiating. Burial will be in Raymond Corners Cemetery, Gold.
