Oprah’s father dead at age 88

Posted: Monday, July 11, 2022. 10:35 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Television mogul Oprah Winfrey is mourning her father Vernon, 88, former city councilman and barbershop owner who died in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday, according to NBC News.

Writing on Instagram, Winfrey said her father died “with family surrounding his bedside.” “I had the sacred honour of witnessing the man responsible for my life take his last breath,” she continued. “We could feel Peace enter the room at his passing.”

Oprah was recently in Nashville for Independence Day weekend to celebrate her father’s life at a time when Vernon had been battling cancer, WSMV, NBC’s Nashville affiliate, reported. However, Vernon’s cause of death has not yet been officially confirmed.

Oprah spent her early childhood in her father’s hometown of Kosciusko, Mississippi, and in Milwaukee with her mother, Vernita Lee, who died in 2018. However, she also lived with her father in Nashville, between the ages of 7 and 9 and during her teens.

Vernon Winfrey, an Army veteran and deacon, was well known in Nashville for owning Winfrey Barber & Beauty Shop and for his work as a councilman for 16 years. Nashville Mayor John Cooper offered his “deepest condolences to the family of Vernon Winfrey” and remembered him for having “dedicated his life to entrepreneurship, barbering, and mentoring young men in the community.”
