He was born on October 31, 1965 in Germantown, Kentucky, a son of Dorothy Flack Parker and the late Jimmie Parker.

Vess was a long time employee of Larry Fannin Chevrolet where he met many people, some whom he became close acquaintances with and whom he admired greatly.  He worked as a young teenager building trails at the Morehead City Park and loved being outdoors.  He enjoyed working in the yard, remodeling homes, trading in automobiles, guns and knives, and sitting around talking with friends and family.

Vess believed that God was within ones heart and through their works; he was a kind and gentle soul who would do anything to help a person in need.  He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
