My poppa Vinny was the best man I’ve ever had in my life. I will always remember your bright smile, gentle touch, wise words and contagious laugh. Life will be different and empty without you here, I am going to miss you like crazy even though you will always be in my heart. You gave all your grandchildren the best childhood, teenage years and adult hood we will forever hold the memories we have with you in our hearts. I’ll miss eating figs straight off the tree and drinking ice water out of your big red cup, watching you catch white butterflies with your bare hands and giving you hair cuts. I will love you forever poppa and you will be missed tremendously.
Love forever your little girl Brianna Rose❤️

Another great loss. My condolences to the family. So soon after Steve's passing which is even more heartbreaking. Again, Vinny was like a Father to me as was Steve as a young girl/teenager while I worked at the pizzeria. Both great role models, always looked out for us kids. Showed us a great work ethic and kept us off the streets. He loved to pinch my cheeks too! Vinny, you will be missed and I will remember you always. Love, Tee
