Paul Vinson Obituary, Death – Paul “Daddy” Vinson, a former member of the Dixie Echoes who sang baritone and played guitar, passed away yesterday surrounded by his family. He had been ill for quite some time. Vinson had been a part of the band for a considerable amount of time. He had lived 91 years and was able to reflect on his life. Because of his great voice and amusing demeanor, fans of gospel music from all over the United States fell in love with Daddy Paul.
Daddy Paul became very popular in the gospel music community. His great recognition can be traced back mostly to the song “Hallelujah Square,” which is widely recognized as his defining piece of work. Your thoughts and prayers, not only for him but also for his wife Billie and the rest of the Shelnut and Vinson families, will be very much appreciated by all of them. Please remember not just him but also his wife. Daddy Paul Vinson has passed away and is spending eternity in paradise with Jesus.
His death happened just a few moments ago at this point. The level of love I felt for him was practically overwhelming. I have a lot of happy memories, and I plan to keep them with me for the rest of my life. I hope that they make me a happier person. The impact that he had on my life had a significant impact on the course that my life would eventually take. In spite of the fact that his health had been steadily deteriorating over the course of the past few years,
he never lost his razor-sharp wit or his deadpan sense of humor. I am extremely grateful that he was able to spend both Thanksgiving and Christmas with his family at their house, and I hope that you and your loved ones are able to do the same this year. He has at long last reached the shimmering street that he has sang about for a lengthy amount of time now. Please continue to pray for each and every member of our family as you have been doing.
