Vernon G. Edgar Jr., 79, of Winter Park, FL passed away on August 17, 2013. Vernon was born on May 14, 1934 to the late Vernon G. and Pauline Edgar in Meridian, Mississippi. He graduated from Florida State University with his Bachelor's Degree in 1956 and then his Masters of Science in 1958. He served as the President of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity at FSU during his time there, and was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Housing Board at UCF later in life. He lived and practiced as a Certified Public Accountant in Winter Park for 35 years. Vernon was a sports enthusiast, loved to read, and was well-versed in and enjoyed learning history. He was known as a dedicated and loyal friend and was very well-known and involved with his Winter Park and Lakeland communities. Vernon was an avid golfer, and one of his many successes on the course was scoring two hole-in-ones at Cleveland Heights Golf and Country Club on the same #9 hole… 27 years apart from one another. He will truly be missed by all those who knew and loved spending time with him.
