In Memory of

Richard Wayne Vinson

December 30, 1934 – November 27, 2021

Richard Wayne Vinson, age 86, died peaceful at his home on Saturday November 27, 2021.

The Scottsville native was the son of the late James A. and Ruth T. Spears Vinson and was preceded in death by his son Kerry Vinson and grandson Brian Calvert.

An electrician and owner of Vinson Electric, Richard always seemed to have the part or wisdom to repair many broken things.  He loves God and served him with gladness as a member of Scottsville Baptist Church, serving in the choir and as deacon for many years.  Serving in the Gideons International was just one of the many ways he served the Lord outside the church.
