Life story
June 3, 1986
Born in Texas Granbury on June 3, 1986.
September 4, 2004

Passed away on September 4, 2004 at the age of 18.

Vernon was home for the Labor Day weekend from college and after the evening of Sept 3 2004 where Vernon and his family spent a wonderful blessed evening together, an evening I now look back on as a precious gift from God. This evening was full of laughter, smiles and preparation for a big bar-b-cue that weekend. We took pictures, unknown to us they would be the last. Vernon and I , mom, went home to Bernie,Mo, where I lived with my husband Randy Patterson, and his 21 year old son Justen.

It was late and we were getting ready for bed, I kissed Vernon on his cheek and hugged him and he hugged me, I told Vernon, how much I love him and was so glad he was there, we went to bed. I was awoke at about 4:30 in the early morning hours of Sept 4 2004, what I saw and heard will not leave my mind, my precious son was going to Heaven and I could not stop it! I prayed, I cried, I screamed, Please God he's only barely 18!!! God needed him more, because Jesus took his hand and led him home. I believe Vernon took what was meant for me, Randy's son had nothing against Vernon, it was me he wanted to get rid of, he wanted his Dad all to himself. He hurt me and so many others much more, by what he did

Now this cold hearted, cold blooded murderer sits in a mental institution, no justice for Vernon!! I try so very hard to hold onto the words of our Lord, VENGENCE IS MINE SAYETH THE LORD!! AND I WILL RE-PAY!!!

VERNON EUGENE LIPSEY WAS BORN JUNE 3, 1986 TO PARENTS DENNIS AND PATSY LIPSEY AND SIBLINGS JASON VERNON, TRACY LEE, AND STACY LEE.

BORN AT GRANBURY HOSPITAL IN GRANBURY TEXAS.

THIS IS THE FIRST BLESSING AS EITHER PARENT COULD NOT OR WERE NOT SUPPOSE TO BE ABLE TO HAVE CHILDREN.

VERNON'S HAIR IS RED, HIS EYES ARE GREEN, SO PRECIOUS TO HIS ENTIRE FAMILY. VERNON'S NAME CAME FROM HIS GRANDPA FLOYD VERNON ALSMAN, WHO HAD WONDERED IF ANY OF HIS GRANKIDS WOULD BE RED HEADED, AND VERNON IS, ALTHOUGH HIS GRANDPA NEVER SAW HIM HE PASSED AWAY DEC 22 1985. EUGENE IS HIS DAD'S MIDDLE NAME, THAT'S HOW HE GOT HIS NAME. HIS OLDER BROTHER SHARES VERNON AS HIS MIDDLE NAME.

AS A BABY VERNON WAS VERY GOOD, HE WAS NEVER WITHOUT SOMEONE HOLDING HIM AND PLAYING WITH HIM. HE WOULD CRY WHEN HIS BUBBA AND SISSY'S LEFT THE HOUSE. VERNON HAD THIS DEAL WHEN HE WAS SMALL TO HOLD HIS DAD'S EAR, AND THAT HE DID ,GOING TO SLEEP AT NITE GOING DOWN THE ROAD, OR JUST IN HIS DAD'S LAP.

VERNON TURNED 3 YEARS OLD IN OUR HOUSE AT WAPPAPELLO MO, BUT NEVER FORGOT HE WAS FROM TEXAS. VERNON STARTED SCHOOL AT GREENVILLE MO ELEMENTARY AND GRADUATED FROM GREENVILLE HIGH SCHOOL MAY 2004 WITH HONORS. AFTER HIGH SCHOOL VERNON WENT TO COLLEGE AT LINCOLN TECH IN INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA.

VERNON ENJOYS WATCHING THE DALLAS COWBOYS, HIS FAVORITE, EMMITT SMITH. WATCHING NASCAR HIS FAVORITE MARK MARTIN, IN 2004 HE WENT TO INDY 400 AND WATCHED A NASCAR RACE AND ENJOYED IT SO. HE HAD SAID MOM NEXT YEAR LETS ALL GET TOGETHER AND GO SEE THE RACE, GOOD IDEA I TOLD HIM. AUGUST 05 IN HONOR OF VERNON HIS FAMILY DID GO TO INDIANAPOLIS AND SEE THE NASCAR RACE. FORD RACING HE ENJOYED, FORD TRUCKS, HE ACTUALLY RE BUILT A MOTOR FOR A 78 FORD, HIS BROTHER JASON WHO IS A MECHANIC, HELPED AND TAUGHT AS THEY WENT. VERNON WAS GOING TO COLLEGE TO BE A MECHANIC AND HOPED TO ONE DAY WORK IN THE NASCAR PITS.

VERNON'S SISTERS TRACY AND STACY ARE THE WIND BENEATH HIS WINGS. HE ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO THEM COMIN HOME FOR THE WEEKEND OR SUMMER HE KNEW THEY WOULD TAKE HIM TO THE MOVIES OR JUST ABOUT WHAT EVER HE WANTED TO DO. THERE WERE 10 YEARS IN AGE DIFFERANCE BETWEEN THEM HIS SISTERS ARE TWINS. WHEN VERNON'S BROTHER GOT MARRIED, VERNON CRIED FOR DAYS HE DIDN'T WANT BUBBA TO LEAVE HOME OR TO GET MARRIED, HE CAME TO LOVE HIS BROTHERS WIFE VERY MUCH.

HOLIDAYS AND FAMILY GET TOGETHERS IS WHAT VERNON LOVED THE MOST. HE LIKED TO SET BACK AND JUST WATCH IT ALL, MOSTLY QUIET BUT HE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. THEN ALONG CAME HIS NIECES AND NEPHEW. JASA LYNN WAS FIRST HE COULDN'T HARDLY LEAVE HER ALONE AT ALL. THEN CAME JOHNAH LEE, THEN O WOW FINALLY A BOY, CHAD WAS BORN, THEN CAME TARASAH LEE AND HIS LAST NIECE HE ONLY HELD IN HEAVEN BEFOR SHE WAS SENT HERE, TONIAH VERNIECE, WHO LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE HER UNCLE VERNON AND EVEN HAS RED HAIR.

VERNON IS A QUIET GENTLE PERSON, WOULD DO ABOUT ANYTHING FOR ANYONE, LIKES TO STAY HOME AND JUST WATCH A MOVIE ON TV OR SURF THE NET, WORK AND XLEAN ON HIS TRUCK AND JEEP. AS HIS MOTHER TO GET ALONG WITH VERNON WAS TO MAKE SURE TEA WAS MADE AND WE ALWAYS HAD KETCHUP, AND AS HIS MOTHER NO ONE WAS ANY PROUDER OF HIM THAN ME. THERE ARE SO MANY DETAILS AND AS WE THINK OF THEM THEY WILL BE ADDED HERE.

MY PRECIOUS VERNON, BECAME AN ANGEL ON SEPT 4 2004, MURDERED AT THE HANDS OF ANOTHER WHILE HE SLEPT AND I ACROSS THE HALL. VERNON'S GARDEN AS WE CALL IT IS LITTLE BRUSHY IN WAPPAPELLO, MO.

GOD NEEDED ANOTHER SPECIAL ANGEL IN HEAVEN, AND I KNOW ONE DAY I WILL HOLD MY BABY IN MY ARMS AGAIN.
