    Default Answer Guy aka Vern Lysford

    https://www.duborefuneralhome.com/obituary/Vern-Lysford

    It's very fitting that the obituary so very accurately captures his unique sense of humor!

    I've known Vern my entire life & wasn't necessarily fond of his style of humor in my early years, but I grew to appreciate it as I "matured" (just like his appreciation for NDSU ).

    Rest in peace, thank you for showing us how to accept what we're dealt.

    Vern sure had a unique sense of humor and made me smile every time I read his posts or ran into him at tailgating. Loved reading his stuff back in the day on Bison media blog, stirring us all up to get a laugh. UND has rarely produced anything worthwhile, but he was the best they’ve had. RIP, Vern and condolences to all his family, including you, gotts.

    I've been told Vern wrote his own obit. For me the tell is ...

    He is survived by his long-suffering wife of 40 years, ...
    That's classic "Answer Guy" (aka VMeister).

    Vern had a final email that was to be sent out after his passing.

    The last line in his good bye was----

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    Looking at the Bisonville Digital Grave Site, it's sad how many people have died in the last 18 years I've been on this site. When I die, after a few years people will ask
    "Whatever happened to herdbot?" If I ever go a year without posting, assume I'm dead.

    Anyways... RIP Answer Guy. I probably annoyed him a few times but I enjoyed his witt

    Here's his last post on Bisonville

    Otherwise, the numbers would be larger.

    Also, I'm Catholic...I won't be letting TAB do any of my snake handling.

    Isn’t it funny… I had no idea that he was related to two other people that I know, until I just read the obituary. I had no idea!
    I enjoyed him and his occasional messages. RIP Answer Guy!

    2011 was so 11 years ago, believe it or not, even I made Answer Guy laugh a time or 2 (he turned down the date to I beam and said to ask TAB instead. haha)

    .. God rest his soul & condolences to his family

    My first job after college was up in Grand Forks. I think I mentioned it on the sioux board and Vern invited me to a UND game, we had a blast...well, I did. UND pissed it down their leg. I took it easy on him. Got to see Kenny Golladay up close.

    Stayed in touch with him ever since. A very fun guy who did sorta represented all that a rivalry is supposed to be. Fun, witty digs bag and forth, but mostly fun. He was an equal opportunity dunk artist.

    He will be missed.
