Vinton was a skilled welder who worked hard to provide for his family. His work ethic was well known. He and his brother Leo built cottages in the same bay on Rainy Lake; our kids enjoyed so many pleasures of lake life because of their fathers’ dreams! The best memories are of swimming, boating, barbecues, bonfires and simply being together.
I am saddened, but take some comfort in knowing that Vinton’s pain and struggles are ended. May your spirit be at peace.
