Here it is, July 13, 2013. I was googling folks from my past and typed in "Vincent Marchionda". How sad I am to see that Mr. Marchionda is gone. He was such an inspiration to me and I have many fond memories of band class at PJH and of music lessons at his home. My teenage years were not easy, and he always gave me hope and taught me that there was so much joy to be had in this life. As it turned out, he was right! My life has been amazing and filled with love. Mr. Marchionda's kindness will never be forgotten, and his love of music is forever etched in my soul. I wish I had done this search at least a year earlier.

Move love to the Marchionda family,

Wonderful music teacher in the eighties. Taught me how to play the alto sax at Palmetto Jr. High.

Chris, Cindy, "Mom",
Your Dad was such a great joy to be around. Your family is always so warm and caring and treated everyone like family. He was a such a comic and good natured man. Even my boys remember him as the "funny guy" at the birthday parties. He will be missed and remembered fondly. All our love to you and your family.

The fondest, funniest, early childhood memories my brother Bob and I have are of Uncle Vince. He patiently allowed us to explore his music room and to try playing his many musical instruments when we were just toddlers. He kept us and our cousins laughing with endless jokes and pranks when we were very young. Uncle Vince continued to entertain us as we grew older with spot-on imitations of people, corny puns, wry comments spoken in a variety of accents, and of course, his expert saxophone playing. His kindness, caring, and incredible sense of humor are what we remember most about our Uncle. Aunt Jean, Chris, and Cindy, your husband and father was well loved, and will be remembered by us forever.

There are no words to express my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. You were a devoted wife and friend to Vince. You have a great support system in your daughters and family and they will help you get through this. I miss seeing everyone and the interaction of evening meals. Your life will change but you carry beautiful memory s and they will never change only grow more precious. Jeanne (the other Jean)

Chris, I didn't know your Dad, but in the photos he looks like he really enjoyed life and was a very loving person. You and your family are in my prayers. God bless you. Love, Susan Forkel (friend & co-worker)
