He was proud to be an American, loved the USA, and honorably served in the US Army.
Having a love and passion for fishing, Vincent earned his captain’s license and enjoyed his days fishing in the Great South Bay and in Montauk, NY.

Vinny you were always nice to me and engaged conversation even though I was much younger than you being good friends with your brother chris. I remember one day you threw the football around with us which was very cool. I also remember your love of fishing like your dad and brothers. May God keep you and bless you.

Vinny, you were the first born of 7 children to mom and dad. I will always remember the good times. I will remember shooting milk bottle in the apartment when mommy went food shopping, the band practicing on Sundays. I will remover riding in the convertible with the top down and you taking us to palisades park. Out can now catch Sharks in Heaven. I Love you and will miss you. You Rest In Peace now. Your pain is gone.
We will be here for your Kathy and Michele. Gabriella will hear the stories of her “Crazy Grandpa”.
