He was raised on the family farm and educated in New Salem, graduating from New Salem High School. On November 18, 1950 he married the love of his life, Catherine “Cathy” Sturn. He always had great pleasure of telling everyone how they met on June 7, 1948 at Old Settler’s Days in Center and the next weekend they danced the night away at a dance in Judson. After they married, they made their home as the third generation on his family farm north east of New Salem where they shared their life and raised their two children. In 1996 Vernon and Cathy moved into New Salem. While living in New Salem, he continued to be active with his son on the farm which he cherished dearly. Blessed to have shared in his life are; daughter, Sheryl (Curt) Rohweder, Wishek, ND; son, Brian (Joell) Letzring, on the family farm in New Salem; five grandchildren, David (Tammy) Rohweder and Denise (Paul) Morman, all of Wishek and Miranda, Brianna, and Alisha Letzring, all of New Salem; four great grandchildren; two brothers, Lyle Letzring, New Salem and Douglas (Sandy) Letzring of Center.
