    Best friend we ever had for over 50 years. We will miss him very much.

    Saddened to hear of Vernon’s passing. What a guy! I first became acquainted with Vernon through Barbershopping in the late 60’s (with the Golden Spread Chorus). He had a wonderful Baritone voice, and I enjoyed sitting next to him and busting Chords! I know if there is a Celestial Barbershop singing group where he now resides that he’s joining in and making everyone laugh. He will be missed!!

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Vernon’s family. I have many fond memories of Vernon; upon graduating high school Vernon was my first boss. I was blessed to have worked with Vernon for many years until he retired. It’s been several years since I had spoken with Vernon but I thought of him often.

    What fond memories I have singing with Vernon. From quartets to Chorus Vernon never turned away an opportunity to sing. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are to Melba and family

    Prayers for Melba and the entire family. I loved Vernon Camp! He was one of the first people I met at Central Church of Christ in 1981. We performed in Chorus together and in some of the comedies. He was a great man and friend. Made me laugh all the time! I will certainly miss him, but feel he’s entertaining someone in heaven! Love you, Melba, Kristi Underhill
