Vernon Lee Rabel


On the morning of May 09, 2024, Vernon Lee Rabel, of Harwood, passed away at the age of 81. He was born on August 13, 1942, in Gonzales to his parents Henry and Annie Rabel.

Vernon spent most of his life working on air conditioners, but he was a jack of all trades. He could fix almost anything you set in front of him. He was quite the tinker; he took things apart and put them back together to see how it all worked. He leaves behind many memories that family and friends will cherish.

Vernon is survived by his daughter Judy Rabel, his brothers Ernest Rabel and Johnny Rabel, and his sisters Lillie Suitt and Irene Kunkel.

He is preceded in death by his parents Henry and Annie Rabel, and his wife Mary Leona Rabel.

The family would like to thank the faculty and staff of The Heights of Gonzales for the care they provided Vernon during his stay.
