We’re pleased to announce that Elder Vern Stanfill of the Seventy will be joining us at the 2013 Wyoming-Montana Single Adult conference!
Elder Vern Perry Stanfill
Elder Stanfill was born and raised a ranch kid in South Central Montana. He served a mission in the France Toulouse Mission in 1976 then returned to Brigham Young University to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Economics. He met and married Alicia Cox in 1980. They returned together to Montana and were involved in the ranching business until the ranch was sold in 1998. It was during this time that Elder and Sister Stanfill learned to love the land and people of Montana.
After the sale of the ranch, Elder Stanfill started managing personal investments and a family trust, charged with investment planning and execution, asset protection, and tax compliance. He has been involved with this endeavor since 1998 and continues today. Elder Stanfill and his wife have four daughters and one grandchild. All four children are making their own way and Elder and Sister Stanfill are enjoying the “empty nest”.
Elder Stanfill has served in many church callings including Sunday School and Priesthood instructor, Executive Secretary, Elders Quorum President, Counselor in Bishoprics, Bishop, High Councilman, Stake Presidents Counselor, and Stake President. He was called to the Seventy in December of 2012 and sustained in April Conference of 2013.
Elder Stanfill’s passion after family and church service is aviation. Over the years he has earned single and multi engine instrument ratings and holds a commercial license in both fixed wing and rotorcraft aircraft. He has enjoyed seeing much of the world from the air and hopes one day to circumnavigate the globe in a private aircraft.
Elder Stanfill loves being with family and church service. He firmly believes that true fulfillment and accomplishment are found with in the walls of our own homes and in in the lives of those we serve.
