Who is Robert Vinson? Some people knew the former Colville resident, and the legacy of community involvement left by his parents, Otto Floyd and Myrtie Vinson.
Whether you knew him or not, the Vinson name will always be synonymous with generosity in Colville. After his death in West Los Angeles on Nov. 18, 2012, at the age of 90, Robert Vinson left $650,000 to be distributed among various community organizations, clubs and the City of Colville.
