  1. Jo Brooks

    Vance was such a warm and loving man and family meant everything to him. He will be solely missed. Our prayers and thoughts for all the family. We will remember Vance’s fish fries and how all the neighbors were invited. He loved people and was close to all his family, friends, and church family. Such an easy going man. God Bless you all.

  2. Pete Watson

    It was possible for me to know Vance because one of my sisters lived next door to him and Mary Ann in Garner. Always have, and always will, consider it a privilege to have known them. Rest in peace Vance.

  3. AnnMarie Kaiser
