I miss you, Grandpa. I wish I could’ve seen you more this year. You demonstrated so much grace & wisdom in the moments I got to share with you. I love you. Sitting with you was hard this past year because I don’t know if we were both more reserved than we needed to be, maybe I just was but I’m so happy I got to talk with you & make you smile even for a moment.

I just learned of Vince's passing and the services several days ago, and I regret I was not at the calling and service.
I worked with Vince for a number of years. He was great to work with,...his positive attitude and pleasant personality, coupled with his technical skills and problem solving abilities made him a favorite to be around.
I played a number of rounds of golf in the company league and in our own matches at various courses, and I always thought his swing mirrored him...smooth and balanced yet still powerful and efficient.
I offer my sincere prayers and condolences to the family and I hope your memories of him will last forever.

Vince exemplified all of the best attributes of the Greatest Generation. Always positive, his quiet confidence and good humor were a blessing to all who knew him. He is one of the finest men I have ever known.
Teri and I regret being out of town and unable to attend Vince's services. The Nagy family will be in our prayers.
