Vernon Louis Heywood
Oct 13, 1941 to May 17, 2016
Passed away peacefully at Ayre Manor. Survived by his mother Louise Heywood and sister Patty Phillips both of Sooke, brother Bill Lisney of Vancouver,
sons Steven (Deborah) of Victoria and Michael (Brenda)of Calgary and his seven grandchildren. Vern left us wonderful memories of a talented, vibrant man who slowly lost his fight against his struggles with bi-polar disorder and mid brain encephalitis. He had been a self taught guitarist, watercolour artist, poet, story teller, writer, amateur photographer and a lover of Bob Dylan’s music. Vern left this world hearing the voice of Dylan singing Knocking on Heaven’s Door.
The family scattered Vern’s ashes over his father’s at the old family home on Kemp Lake Road.
We loved you and will hold you in our hearts forever.
