Vincent was a loving son, husband, father and grandfather. He lived his life solely for his family. His dedication to his family made him a hard worker, creating a successful business in manufacturing and distributing, providing everything his family needed. “Nose to the grindstone” was his mantra. Vincent enjoyed life to the fullest. He loved the ocean, boats, airplanes and loved his cars. He loved his Bride, Rose of 67 years, more than anything in the world. They had an old-fashion romance and marriage. Lots of ups and downs, but lots of joy and laughter, too. He loved people and loved his kids and was happy to give advice when asked. He was a great man with a great attitude and great sense of humor. Whenever someone asked how he was doing he would reply “better than ever”. I believe those were also his last words to the ER doctor just 2 days before he passed. He will be greatly missed by all.
