Oprah’s Dad, Vernon Winfrey, Passes Away After Family Gives Him Grand Send Off


Condolences to Oprah Winfrey. She reports on Instagram that her dad, Vernon, has passed away at age 88. On July 4th Oprah organized a grand send off for her dad with all his friends and family. It’s sort of a neat idea, a kind of pre-memorial that he could enjoy. Oprah says in the video that he thought it was for July 4th. Sweet.
PS Oprah looks very well in the video. Good for her! So sorry for her loss.
