Lynn Edward Vinson, 67, passed away peacefully among his family on Dec. 10, 2019. Born in Akron, Ohio, he worked as a master auto technician and eventually opened his own auto repair business in Jupiter, Fla. He was a dedicated husband and wonderful father. He was preceded in death by his mother, Doris McBee Williams; and stepfather, Tom Williams. Lynn is survived by his wife of 39 years, Mary; sons, Danny Ray (Jennifer) and Michael Lynn; daughter, Michelle Christine Flores; grandchildren, Jacob Flores, Cody Vinson, and Alexis Vinson; brother, Richard (Wendy); sister, Kathryn Smith (Ed); aunt, Maxine Rowe; close cousins, Luther and Kevin Stevenson; and many other beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. He was so proud of his family and he worked hard to teach them to be good people. Lovingly referred to as “Vince” or “Vinny” by many, he had a big heart and easily earned his status as “Superhero” by all the people he unselfishly helped over the years. He had so many strong friendships that lasted more than 35 years. Most people loved him after they met him. He was just that special and will be greatly missed. The family will receive friends on Saturday, Dec. 14, from 10 a.m. until noon at Keith Memorial United Methodist Church, located at 600 West Madison Avenue in Athens. A funeral service will follow the visitation at noon with a small reception immediately following.
