Chinn, Vernon

June 3, 1945 – June 2, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Vernon Chinn, long-time resident of Mount Nelson Place.  Vern passed away peacefully at the Cranbrook Hospital at the age of 75.

Vern and his dear friend Allan were a team most would remember. The two took great pride in cleaning the streets of Invermere for many years.  On went their hard hat, matching vest and away they went with their portable garbage containers.  They were commended for showing up every weekday, making our town one of the tidiest in the province.  They were so proud of their accomplishments.

Vern enjoyed attending Rockies Hockey games in his younger years at the Eddie Mountain Arena and hanging out at the local baseball diamond. A highlight of Vern’s week was to go out for a burger and fries, he also loved to stop in for coffee and a goody at local restaurants.

After retirement, Vern enjoyed his senior years singing in the choir at Columbia Gardens, participating in the Cycling Without Age program, attending the Legion’s Senior Soup and Bun, and many wonderful walks with his caregiver and her dogs for coffee uptown.

Vern leaves behind his Mount Nelson Place family where he spent 51 years, as well as two sisters and two brothers in Terrace, BC.  Vern will be remembered as a kind and caring gentleman and will be missed by everyone.
