Vernon Antonio Harrison was born on November 3,1985 and passed away unexpectedly on June 22, 2022.

Vernon gave his life to Christ and was baptized at a very young age at Freedom Church located in Forestville, MD.

Vernon was a graduate from Crossland High School located in Temple Hills, MD. He worked as security and was a Home Health Aide caregiver for his grandfather.

Vernon was a wonderful father. He adored and doted on his children. They were his heartstring. His relationship with them was phenomenal. Family was important to him. Vernon made it his business to call his mother every day and his daily greeting would be “Hey Pretty Lady” and he would end his conversation with “I love you Ma.” He would send text messages just to say, “I love you.” He had a one-of-a-kind personality and an abundance of love for so many.

He was extremely well known. Vernon loved to laugh and joke around. He would laugh at anything and everything. Vernon touched so many hearts and lives. He loved, loved, loved people and he was loved. Vernon was a protector. It was his nature! Protecting others was automatic for him. He could not stand to see anyone taken advantage of. It did not matter if you were related or a stranger, he would step in to keep a person out of harm’s way. Vernon had a good heart. He had a passion for football. He played football for the DMV Knights in Washington, DC. He coached his son’s football team in Alexandria, VA. He was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan.

“He will be sorely missed by so many”
