Obituary for William Franklin Vinson

William Franklin Vinson, 71, passed away on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at Wayne UNC Health Care surrounded by his family.

Mr. Vinson was born in Wayne County on May 9, 1948 to the late Hallie Carlton Vinson and Mary Corbett Vinson. Before retiring in 1992, he worked as a truck driver with Rose’s Department Store. Mr. Vinson was a hard-working man, which was the theme of his life. He was the kind of man who was loyal to his family and who took great pride in caring and providing for them. Many of his happiest times were spent in his garden on one of his antique tractors. He was a member of the Eastern North Carolina Vintage Tractor Club.

A service to celebrate the life of Mr. Vinson will be held on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the chapel with Rev. Kelly Buffaloe officiating. The family will greet friends immediately following the service at Seymour Funeral Home and other times at his home.

Mr. Vinson is survived by his wife of 52 years, Patsy Lou Blizzard Vinson; children, William Hal Vinson (Karen), Christopher Kevin Vinson (William Bell) and Michael Shane Vinson (Sherry); grandchildren, Logan Greene, Kallie Lou Vinson, Sarah Nicole Vinson and Sydney Marie Vinson; great-grandchildren, Charlotte and Mason Greene; and his sister, Teresa Jones (Ronnie). He is also survived by his good friend and cousin, Billy Anderson and wife, Susan and grandson, Seth as well as his k-9 friend, Shadow.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Hallie Carlton Vinson and Douglas Carson Vinson.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given in his memory to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
