Troy Vinson, beloved member of the community of Princeton, Kentucky, passed away on December 14, 2023. Born on May 4, 1967, Troy was a dedicated individual who lived life to the fullest.
Troy's passion for building and driving hot rods was unparalleled. He had an incredible talent for crafting these powerful machines and took immense pleasure in taking them for drives. His expertise and love for hot rods were respected by all who knew him.
In addition to his love for hot rods, Troy also enjoyed driving off-road RZRs and side by sides. The thrill of adventure captured him, and he embraced every opportunity to explore the great outdoors. Troy's adventurous spirit was contagious and inspired those around him, especially his family.
Sports played a significant role in Troy's life, with softball being one of his favorite pastimes. Through softball, he formed lasting friendships filled with shared memories.
Troy is survived by his loving spouse LaDonna Vinson, who stood by his side through thick and thin.

He is preceded in death by his father Gerald "Jay" Vinson.
Troy was known by a lot of people for many different things. To some he was a friend, a brother, a neighbor, but perhaps his most cherished title he wore was that of "G-Pop" to his grandchildren. He was also honored to be called a member of the Tater Crew Group.
