Obituary

Vernon William Wolfork, Jr. known to many as “Brother”, born March 13, 1939 in Cincinnati, Ohio to his parents the late Vernon William Wolfork, Sr. and Naomi Gallaher Wolfork. He departed this life on April 16, 2017 early in the morning peacefully at his home. Vernon was the second child of seven siblings Vernona Jemison (Thad), Cincinnati, OH, Linnetta Rolsin (Clarence) of Clearwater, FL, Ruth Turner Cincinnati, OH, Mark Wolfork of New York, Wanda Brooks (Clarence) Cincinnati, OH and preceding him in death: Lunsford Wolfork, Sr.


Vernon attended Roger Bacon High School; after high school he enlisted in the United States Army. He worked several jobs before starting his illustrious career with General Electric in 1966. Vernon was a dedicated worker for 30 years before retiring.

Vernon attended and was a member of Saint Martin de Porres Church. In recent years, he would attend Peace Baptist Church when his health permitted. Throughout his illness, he struggled and fought; but through it all he never lost his faith. He would often say as he pointed towards the sky “He’s got me”.

Anyone who knew Vernon knows he was very well dressed and never went anywhere without a cap. He always kept a clean car, loved playing cards and drinking “Cerveza” with family and friends.

Early on Resurrection Sunday morning God called Vernon home to rest. He leaves to cherish his memories; His loving and devoted wife and partner for life of 50 years Betty J. Wolfork; six children Venise Wolfork-Johnson, Vernon W. Wolfork, III, Brian L. Wolfork all of Louisville, KY., Verlando U. Wolfork (Felisia), Veronica C. Wolfork both of Indianapolis, IN, Ebony Matthews of Covington, KY and step son Robert D. Love (Equilla) of Columbia, GA. His in-laws, William H. Carter (Princess), Garcia Carter, deceased (Evelyn) both of Cincinnati, OH, Brenda Barnett (James) Houston, TX, Harry L. Carter Cincinnati, OH, Lynda Carter San Antonio, TX, Wanda D. Gibson (Daryl) Cincinnati, OH.
