Dr. Viney grew up in Midland, Texas, and attended Sam Houston Elementary School, San Jacinto Junior High and Midland High School.
After finishing college and post-graduate training, he returned to Midland with his wife Joann in 1982. He has been in active medical practice since that time.
Dr. Viney and his wife raised three children in Midland, all attending public schools within Midland Independent School District.
He has actively pursued water sources for the Midland County residents outside the city for more than 25 years, having lived within Midland County but outside the city limits since 1989. To that end, Dr. Viney helped establish the Midland County Utility District six years ago and has been an active MCUD board member since that time.
