He was living at the Drunk Tank in Los Angeles for a while. I dont know details but heard he was hit/fell off a train in Needles or somewhere near by on June 27th.

Rest in Peace man. You were such a sweetheart, I'll miss seeing your face

I knew Vern. He was a Fullerton local for many years. A bit of a drunk, but he was a funny dude. Countless times he spoke on going to burning man, and leaving town. One day he was gone, a few months later we heard the tragic news. ASSHOLE your name will live on as a legend. I knew he was dying of liver serosis, and had heard a rumor that he was pushed off that train. Rest easy old sport.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
