He was born in Sisseton, South Dakota to Maria Redday-DeCoteau and Vernon “Pasa” Renville Sr. Vernon Redday was a very loving and caring young man. His compassion was love and caring for friends and relatives. Vernon stood up for what he loved. . .and that was 1.) his Beasties, all of them 2.) his Two Spirited Society he organized and started. That was his passion. Vernon loved to play Bingo and mainly his “Rewards”-Always looking for someone to go “HAM” with. (Right Billie Renville). He was a free spirit, he did and went where he pleased, and did this with “ALL” his Beasties. Vernon was the type of person to go out of his way to help who ever needed help!
