Obituary of John Henry "Junior" Vineyard Jr.
John Henry Vineyard Jr., 71, of Hiltons went to be with the Lord Saturday, November 2, 2019 at his residence surrounded by his loving family.
Junior was born on May 28, 1948 in Hiltons, Virginia to the late John Henry Vineyard Sr. and Mary Lou Sorah Vineyard. He retired from General Shale after 37 years as a garage mechanic. One of his favorite things to do was sit at Paul Bright’s Garage and shoot the bull about Ford, Chevy, and politics. Some of his passions were farming, mechanic work, and his love for animals. Junior was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many.
Along with his parents Junior is preceded in death by sister, Louise Murray; his grandparents, Samuel and Lula Doran Vineyard, Bessie Brewer; and in-laws, Roy and Kathryn Cole Sampson.
Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 48 years, Jane Vineyard; sons, Roger Vineyard and wife Kim, Eddie Vineyard and wife Cindy; youngest son, Jared Vineyard; grandchildren, Eden, Evan, and Avery Vineyard which were his pride and joy and loved them better than cat loves cream; sisters, Mary McMurray and husband Greg, Shirley Smith and husband Albert, Brenda Bishop and Mike, Loretta McMurray and husband Rick; special friend who was more like a brother, Mack Bright and wife Tina; along with several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
