Verlin was born March 17, 1927 in Waterloo, Iowa to Earl and Thelma (Dabney) Fairbanks. Iowa was his boyhood home. He grew up to be a fireman, becoming the Division Chief of the Waterloo Fire Department. He enjoyed the hobbies of fishing and hunting his whole life. He also served in the Army Air Corp during World War II. A loving husband, father and grandfather, he will be missed by many and is now home in Heaven with the Lord.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Kathy and family, and where do I even start about this wonderful guy Verlin, well I have got the pleasure of being able to know Verlin and his wonderful family over the past few years and I can say how cherished I am of knowing all of you,,as a caregiver we are there to care for others loved ones like they were our own and I can honestly say I always thought of Verlin as one of my own, he was such a hard worker always working outside, I remember getting him a carwash scrubber and he scrubbed the whole sidewalks, also found him a hoagie to vacuum the rugs, what a hard working man he was, and a dancer wow did he show us some moves, and his smile would just brighten up any room, I could go on and on but I will forever hold all the memories I have in my heart forever. Rest in paradise Verlin Kathy and family you always are welcome to come back and visit us. With love T
