Obituary

Vernon Lowell Thorson, passed on April 30, 2021 at Denver Hospice, Denver,CO.

Vern was born on 22 of July, 1928 in a farmhouse near Story City, Iowa to Maybelle and Weir S. Thorson. He was a graduate of Story City High School in 1946 and he served in the US Navy in the World War II from 1946-1948. He received a BA from Iowa State University in 1952. On May 4, 1950, he married Delores R. Pomeroy. They were married at the historic “Little Brown Church” in Nashua, Iowa, made famous by the song, The Church in the Wildwood.

Vern had a successful career with Farmland Industries as a salesman and later 17 years as a regional manager of agricultural sales.

Vern was a devoted father and grandfather. He loved spending time with his 7 grandchildren and 7 great-grand children. He enjoyed playing golf and keeping up with Rockies baseball games. He was passionate about serving as a committee member and president of the Lion’s Club for 25 years, and was heavily involved in fund raising for the disadvantaged and underprivileged in the local community. Vernon organized and launched the first charity golf tournament for the Lion’s Club, which became an annual tradition.

Vern was preceded in death by his son, John, brother, Joel and two sisters, Marjorie Johnson and Judy Knoche. He is survived by his wife Delores, 2 daughters, Sherri Wargin & Paula Fletcher and two sons, Dwight Thorson and Tim Thorson.

A memorial service to honor Vernon’s life will be held this Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Viegut Funeral Home in Loveland, CO at 10:00 AM.
