Vernon Leroy Ream

May 5, 1968 — January 22, 2023

Vernon LeRoy Ream, 54, of Benton, Tennessee, previously of Shawnee, Oklahoma, passed away on January 22, 2023.

Vernon enjoyed watching wrestling--even managing to make it to a live show once.  He liked older movies--Heavy Metal was one of his favorites. He loved classic rock and old metal. Vernon was also an avid reader with mystery and horror books being his favorite. Vernon loved spending time with the kids taking them to the park, going for walks, and taking them to the store to spend his last dime. Vernon also loved to buy lottery scratch tickets and always seemed to have luck on his side. He was always there to help whether it was babysitting or mowing the lawn. He always said he was a jack of all trades but master of none. He was a wonderful, crazy, big-hearted, lovable friend who will be dearly missed.

Vernon was preceded in death by his parents, James "Jim" Ream and Aredith "Ardy" Ream of Shawnee, Oklahoma, and his grandparents on both side.

He is survived by his friends who were his family, Michael and MeChel Andring-Camp; their children: Michael, Chelsey, and Skyler Camp; their brother, Jacob Camp, who passed away 9 days after Vernon; 11 nieces and nephews; and a host of friends he has met along the way who all considered him a brother, an uncle, or a friend. Vernon also had an estranged sister Tony (Ream) Pettyjohn, and a son, Samuel, whom he never knew but always wished he had.
