Vernon was a strong follower of the Wa’ashat Religion at the Wapato Longhouse. He loved to travel, the outdoors, being a hunter and fisherman, and camping. He loved to powwow and was the strongest voice in the crowd. He had lots of drum group friends from the United States and Canada. His employment history included being a Yakama Nation Fire Management firefighter, with the Yakama Nation Fish & Wildlife Program, being an ironworker, where he worked on numerous warehouses and structures in the Yakima Valley. He did timber tree lopping in the Yakama Reservation’s mountains. He also had a part in building the SunDome and after its completion, helped set up the concert stages in the Yakima SunDome.
