Vinson was always a fun, loving, loyal person, He was very charismatic and strong-willed, he never met a stranger. He always showed loved to everyone. He had a boldness like no other, always straight to the point and if you were wrong he would be the first to let you know.But he would also be the first to try to talk you through difficult times and help you figure things out. Vinson loved his children, his wife and his family, he was always the protector even though he wasnt the oldest. Vinson had impecable strength even in his last days he fought to be "V" until the end.
