The Bay County Road Department lost two of its own in 2017 to job site accidents. Richard “Doug” Robinson and James Vinson were well-liked and respected by their co-workers and colleagues, and Bay County honors them with pride and reverence in the Fallen Heroes Memorial. These men served their communities faithfully for many years, we hope that their sacrifice will be remembered.
James Adam Vinson, 43, of Panama City, FL died Thursday, June 1, 2017 while working on Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach, Florida. James worked for Bay County for 15 years as a Heavy Equipment Operator. He was dedicated to his faith, family and friends, and was an avid outdoors-man who loved camping and fishing.
