Predeceased by his parents Leo Cavanagh and Irene (nee Fleming) Cavanagh. Vern was an FM Radio Announcer at 92.1 Brantford from the mid 70's to the early 80's. His program was classical music... "A Starlight Concert" each evening, and he also partnered with local radio show hostess Kit McDermott to write a column in the Brantford Expositor newspaper in later years.
