William Vernon Keepers
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 4, 1899
Wetmore
Nemaha County
Kansas, USA
Death: Jun. 14, 1918
Colorado, USA

Vernon was 19 years old and had received a farm deferment from the WWI draft. His family was so relieved that he wouldn't go to war. It was a bright Colorado day, blue sky, one little scud of a cloud overhead. Vernon was plowing a field, riding a tractor, when one single lightning bolt from that little cloud struck Vernon dead. Rest in Peace, Dear Son.
