Verner worked as a master electrician showing exemplary standards in his work for the IBEW and SE Wisconsin.

Verner was known for being an extremely hard worker and for his many diverse talents like cooking, fossil hunting, geocaching, cycling, artwork, and valiantly completing the tough mudder a few years ago!
