Born March 1, 1945, in Arthur, Tennessee Vern was the son of the late Ova Bussell, Mary (Tuttle) and Danny Dobbins. He attended Monroe High School.

He had a kind, loving soul and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. An animal lover through and through. Vern loved to hunt, fish, and cook. You would never go hungry around him! He loved country music, collecting coins and a good joke. To cherish his memory, Vern leaves behind his wife of almost forty-five years, Connie; three children: Missy, Steve, and Brian (Carey); three siblings: Bessie (Larry), Mitchell, and Ova Junior; two grandchildren, Erik and Megan; an aunt and uncle, Ulus and Judy; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; and beloved doggies, Bear and Emma.
