Danny Vinson

KOKOMO — Danny Vinson, 55, Kokomo, passed away at 4:05 a.m. Sunday, April 14, 2013, at his residence.

Danny was born April 26, 1957, in Oceanside, Calif., to Thomas B. Vinson and Rita Jo Ann Winegardner (Moore), who survive. His marriage to the former Vicki L. Mulvaney, who also survives, was in Las Vegas, Nev., on March 2, 2004.

Danny served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He went to San Jacinta College in the Journeyman Electrician Program from 1982 to 1986. He also worked at Chrysler for 20 years as an electrician. During that time, he was a member of the U.A.W Local 685 and served as union steward. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, shooting and motorcycles. His favorite time of year was the 4th of July. He loved spending time with family and friends, with the day ending with a spectacular fireworks display. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his girls and all of his grandchildren. His motto was “To Love with Conviction and Fight with Conviction.”

Survivors include his wife, Vicki L. Vinson; six daughters, Lindsey Lease and fiance (Matt Thomas), Desiree Iseminger (Jake), Nicole Taylor, Heather Stevens, Jennifer Roberts (Braxton), and Stacy Smith (Rawtavius); his father, Thomas B. Vinson; his mother and stepfather, Rita Jo Ann Winegardner (Ronald G.); two brothers, David Vinson and fiancee (Brenda Davis) and Gary Winegardner (Cynthia); three sisters, Victoria Vinson (David Bricknell), Kathy Dewitt and Kelly Alder (Rusty); nine grandchildren and one on the way; along with several nieces and nephews.
