Muncy, Vern H.

February 25, 1926 - August 21, 2017

Vern was born February 25, 1926 in Royalton, Minnesota. He went to be with the Lord August 21, 2017. He was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Florence.

Vern’s family moved to Tennessee during his childhood, where his father was a construction foreman working to build dams for the Tennessee Valley Authority. Vern enlisted in the Marine Corps upon turning 18. He served on Okinawa and in China during World War II.
After graduating from Tennessee Tech, where he lettered in football and baseball, he and his wife, Florence, settled in Nashville, Tennessee. Vern first began work as a teacher and coach in the Nashville schools. Then he became a life insurance salesman for the duration of his working life. He was active at McKendree United Methodist Church, where he served in several capacities through the years.
Vern loved being with extended family at family reunions, he loved being with his Marine Corps friends at 7th Supply Depot reunions, he loved watching Vanderbilt sports with Barbara while he petted rescue dogs, and he loved watching his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren participate in their events.
His kindness and gentle spirit were a blessing to all whose lives he touched.

On behalf of the Stasaski family, I’d like to extend my condolences. My favorite memories of Vern include the interview Katie conducted for school about his time playing baseball in the Marines. I also have fond memories of how he drove Barbara, Ginny, and me around as kids in that little VW Rabbit. Our thoughts are with the Muncy family during this time of loss. Renea Stasaski

We are really saddened to hear of Vern’s passing. He was one of the kindest, most precious men I have known, a real Christian gentleman. I loved him! One of my Sunday School teachers at McKendree when I was in high school, the witness of his life was the best lesson ever. We will miss his presence on this earth but are so thankful for his life and friendship. Blessings on you all as you all as you make your way through this time.

We grew up together and in the nursery at church. Your father was a sweet, gentle-spirited man. He always made me feel welcome and at home. I am so sorry for your loss! I know he and your mom are celebrating right now. Love you friend!
