Oprah just paid tribute to her dad. She threw a party for him on July 4 and she posted a video from the party that shows as he walks to the light, a friend and priest with his hand on Vernon’s shoulder as he prayed to God to stand by Vernon.
In the description, she wrote “Vernon Winfrey 1933-2022.” Oprah mourns her father who died of cancer. According to TMZ, he died Friday evening in East Nashville, TN.
Oprah was recently in town to commemorate her father.
She organized a party on the 4th of July, giving the company an opportunity to thank Vernon for his assistance as an ex-councilman and businessman.
“My dad is sick, so we needed to be able to have all of his friends come and commemorate him while he’s able to earn the happiness. So that’s what we’re doing.
Vernon was sitting in a wheelchair in the middle of the yard and his friends and family honored him. He has been involved with Winfrey Barber & Beauty Shop for 50 years.
