Vernon Lee Myers, known as” Vern”, was born on June 7, 1962 and departed this life on February 11, 2021. Vernon was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was the third child of six born to the Union of his mother Lillie Mae Myers (Brooklyn, NY) and the late John Wesley Myers. Vernon former years were spent in Brooklyn, N. Y., where he enjoyed school, neighborhood sports and his favorite pastime activity was chasing girls. At the age of 17, he decided school was not for him and immediately found a company willing to hire him to lay wood floors. Soon after as he started this job, he recognized he had a talent for repairing, improving, and building homes. Most importantly he realized he could make money in this field and set his own schedule. From that the time on “the time clock went out the window.” Raised in New York, as a child he always enjoyed his summer vacation in South Carolina, when given the opportunity to visit. He then decided on a life change and move to South Carolina. He quickly learned that he enjoyed the freedom that living in the South provided him. Vernon loved life, he loved his family, he loved laughter and saw humor in every situation. He treated everyone like they were special and like family. He treated women no matter who they were, like they were Queens. There was never a time when his family called him for help that he would not try his best to be there to lend a hand. Vernon leaves to mourn his mother, Lillie Mae Myers of Brooklyn, NY; his six children, Tiffany Rabb of Georgetown, SC, Dejuan Rabb, Lamar Rabb, Veronica Rabb, Tyra Rabb, and Jason Rabb all of Brooklyn, NY; thirteen grandchildren, Teaira Trotman, Jayla England and Jayden England of Georgetown SC.
