Growing up a Miceli meant you were always surrounded by your family. All of my life I always looked at my aunts and uncles as extensions of my parents. They would feed us, bathe us, teach us, discipline us and love us all!
Most vividly, I remember always looking at my uncle Vinny as the patriarch of our big family. He was the eldest uncle and commanded much respect. My greatest memory of my uncle Vinny is his dedication to his family. Uncle Vinny never stopped, he worked his whole life to provide his family with the best he could give them. He loved so deeply and for that I always respected him. Uncle Vinny, I learned a lot from you growing up, watching you, and I hope I can pass along to my children all
you have taught me. Love you forever!

I met Valerie & Vinnie when the Miceli Family moved to the farm next door to my parents, Floyd & Louise Johnson. Mom and Dad got to be very good friends with the whole Family especially Valerie & Vinnie. They also opened an amazing restaurant in Cameron, WV. I ate there a few times and the food was GREAT! Vinnie sure was a special man and will live on in the memories we all have of him. On Behalf of all the Johnson Family you will truly be missed.

We met Vinny Sr when the Miceli’s opened there restaurant in Cameron WV. We started out as customers, quickly became friends, and then over the years extended family members. Vin and Val came to the hospital when we had our daughter. Although he is gone he won’t be forgotten.
