Vincent Alan McKinnon, 83, of Owensboro, Kentucky passed away on August 9, 2022, while in the care of hospice and surrounded by his family.
Vince was born June 24, 1939 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to the late Vincent C. and Inez McKinnon.
He drove a semi-truck for Viking Freight System and eventually retired from FedEx in southern California, before moving to Kentucky.
He was also a self-taught musician that played fiddle, mandolin, drums, guitar, and harmonica. No matter where Vince was, it was guaranteed he would have a harmonica on him.
Vince lived life to the fullest. At the age of 80, he married the love of his life, Ruth, whom he leaves behind, proving to everyone that love can happen at any age. Together they watched wrestling every Monday night and spent the weekends on their Harley Davidson motorcycle or singing and hosting karaoke in their garage.
Vincent is survived by his wife, Eleanor Ruth “Pounds” McKinnon of Owensboro, Kentucky; Daughters Darla Fernandes of Pahrump, Nevada, and Tammy (Charles “Chuck”) Roth of Owensboro, Kentucky; a stepson Frank (Pam) Pounds of Charlotte, North Carolina; grandchildren, Nicole (Storm) Rickard, Ashley Galipo, Brian (Veronica) Benoit, Kara (James) Mann, Cody Grigory, Brannon Girnat, Christopher Roth and Dakota Fernandes. Vincent also leaves behind many precious great-grandchildren, relatives, and close friends.
