Obituary for Vern Landgraf

After living a ‘good full life’, Vern Landgraf left this life to move on to his ‘next assignment’. His life began in Hawarden, a small farming town in northwest Iowa. Vern was number seven in a family of eight children. Due to the economy of the 30’s, his family moved frequently and finally settled in San Diego, CA. After school, Vern joined the US Army and spent time in Japan during the Korean Conflict. Upon return home, he met and married Samantha (Cindy). There were two children, little John (who passed away at 14 months) and Sabrina, who lives with her husband Ross Penney near Dallas, OR. Surviving grandchildren include, Chad Lane and wife, Christianne and Taylor Lane of Salem, OR.
Vern was a great brother, great business partner and a great friend. He has three surviving siblings; Ray Landgraf of Los Angeles, CA, Leona Bishop of Park Rapids, MN, and Bill Landgraf of McMinnville, OR.
Vern was instrumental in the success of several new business ventures here in McMinnville, along with his brothers, Harry and Bill. After his first marriage ended, Vern met and married Patricia Lutes. (1928-2004). Vern enjoyed the ‘outdoor’ activities, golfing, camping, fishing, and hunting. Though he did live a ‘good full life’ he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
