So sorry to hear of Vince's passing. I worked at In Depth Marketing, when Vince was working for McDonald Supply. I always enjoyed it when he stopped in to pick up an order. His smile was contagious and he always took the time to chat. He was such a good guy and will be truly missed by all that knew him.

Our family has known the Butler family for a long time. We grew up in the same neighborhood just up the hill. Craig was friends with my brothers Mark and Larry, and we all, including me, stayed in contact all this time. I got to know Craig and Chris by going tubing a few times with the bunch. Always enjoyed visiting Vince and Donna. Sympathies from Larry and me. Prayers for the family.

Have many good memories of them dating while we were in H.S. Much love to Donna and all the family. They were a great couple. Donna, do you remember that Bob and I came over to help you paint your apt. in C.F. when you were expecting your first babe? Good memories.

Uncle Vincent was my dad's "baby brother". Mom told me when dad was in Korea, Vincent would come and pick up her and my brother so they could go visit both sets of grand parents... mom didn't know how to drive. He will be missed!❤

Vinny was always so young at heart. My sons all say "He had the best toys." He could and would ride anything motorized and they enjoyed getting to ride along....motorcycles, snow mobiles, jet skis, and of course the house boat.
Vince and Donna started dating when I was a pre-schooler. If Donna wasn't ready when he arrived, I climbed on his lap and he was my Vincent, not hers.
Much love to all who will miss him dearly.
