Vern Thibedeau

It’s with broken hearts that the family of Vern William Fredrick Thibedeau announces he passed away suddenly on September 1st, 2023.

Vern was born July 27th, 1941 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

He married the love of his life, Sheila Martin January 25th, 1963 and they were inseparable from that day forward. They raised three children in Kingston Ontario where he had a very successful career with Correctional Service Canada. Vern retired in 1999 and it was at that time, he and Sheila decided to be adventurous by travelling Canada and the USA until settling back in Kingston. He was a successful author and entertained thousands of people every summer for the Kingston Pen Tours.

Vern is survived by his beloved wife Sheila, his sons Trevor, Les (Gillian) and daughter Cheryl (Scott). His grandchildren, Cameron & Ashley (Dale), Jake, Tyler (Erin), Kenna (Ryan), Adrian (Teresa), Jordan (Lucy), Nolan (Emma) & Dawson (Tamara).
