Joseph and Judy cared for him in his last years. He loved peppermints, having a working watch, gardening, the outdoors, and calling Judy, Joseph, and Thomas nearly every day. His favorite times were going on vacation to state and national parks. His best friend was Tom Fromme who faithfully wrote to Verlin every week; he loved receiving those letters. Tom and Verlin's friendship was beautiful spanning the years since grade school. He was very proud of being the father of 6 sons and 1 daughter, telling everyone about them when he met them. He retired from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority where he worked as a mechanic.
