Vincent Joseph Cottone, age 68, passed from his earthly life on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
He was born May 5, 1949 in Manhattan, NY, the son of the late Frank Michael and Dorothea Nastasi Cottone.
Vincent was husband to Kathleen Cottone; father of Michele Gold (Brian) and Mark Cottone; grandfather to Nicholas, Hunter and Gabriella; and brother to Mary Jean, Joey, Dorothy, and Christopher.
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. His favorite hockey team was the New York Rangers, which he always enjoyed watching and loved seeing them win. Most recently Vincent’s new hobby was target shooting with his grandson, Nicholas. Most of all Vincent loved and cared for his beloved family. Cherished memories of Vincent will live on in our hearts.
