Vernon was born on September 8, 1942 in Goodlettsville to Willie Arden Wilson and Susie Florence Wilson.

His favorite sports were Steeler's football and wresting. Vernon was a man of many words. He was often heard saying, "They're nothing but a bunch of fruit-loops" or "They're a bunch of quacks."

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother: Willie Wilson, Jr. and is survived by a daughter: Nikki Staggs; granddaughter: Layla Staggs; sister: Juanita Hughes; brother: Richard Wilson; and a step daughter: Mattie Edwards.
