February 08, 1935 - October 01, 2017


Vernon H. Annette was born on February 8, 1935 in Bellingham, WA to Vernon and Ella Annette. After high school, Vern completed a five-year apprenticeship program with the plumber and pipefitter union. Vernon worked in construction for a few years then, from 1960 to 1994, Vernon worked for Texaco Refinery. He was regarded as an excellent welder, fabricator, and estimator.

Vernon was at home in the mountains; picking blueberries, hiking, and back country hunting in the mountains of Eastern Washington, especially hunting the cabin on Taroda Creek.

Vernon was a dedicated father who loved his family.

Vernon is survived by his wife Diane, daughter Marcia Mallahan, sons Dale Annette and Darryl (Tammy) Annette, sisters La Verne Stephens, Carol Knoll, and Kathy Dunton, brother Bob Annette, five grandchildren Mark, Zachary, Katie, D.J., and Steven, and one great-grandchild Wyatt.

Vernon was preceded in death by his sisters Mamie, Deloris, Eleanor, and Colleen, son-in-law Matt Mallahan, and father-in-law Marion Burgraff.

The family would like to thank all the caregivers that helped care for him during his last months. A celebration of life will take place at a later date.

  1. I loved my Uncle didn’t get to see each other much but when we did we never quit catching up on things. He loved to tell me some of his experiences when he was with my Mom (his sister) & Dad we would laugh I just loved it. The Last time Kenny and I saw my Uncle as we were starting to leave he said you know last time you were going to sing for me and you didn’t so can you sing for me now. So we did it just makes me smile when I think of that. He use to tell me how I reminded him of my mom. These are memories I will never forget . He was a Wonderful Uncle our Love and Prayers go out to the family. Vicki & Kenny
