Hilton leaves behind his beloved wife of 51 years, JoAnn Downing Vincens; his daughter, Jodi V. Buras (Jay); and his son, Douglas (Shelly). He also leaves behind five grandchildren: Sydney, Owen and Nathan Vincens, and Brooke and Blake Buras; his brother, Danny Vincens (Brenda); his sisters–in–law, Linda Gurtner (Clarence), Patrice Cusimano (Sal), and Rose Vincens; and his brother-in-law, Randy Downing (Karen).

Vincens, Sr.; his mother, Vicky Vincens; his brother, Barry Vincens, Sr.; and his in-laws, Jack and Margie Downing. Hilton was a licensed electrician and worked for many years as a building maintenance engineer for Whitney National Bank, and Equity Office Properties at Lakeway Center. He volunteered for many years with the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation for its annual Back to the Beach Festival. Hilton served in the Air National Guard, and as a C130 Flight Engineer in the Air Force Reserve. He loved his New Orleans Saints, LSU Sports, and most of all, attending his grandchildren’s ball games and dance events. He was extremely proud of his children and grandchildren. A kind and giving man by nature, Hilton always offered a helping hand to anyone who asked. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation to be held at ST. BERNARD MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, 701 W. Virtue Street, in Chalmette, on Thursday, June 13, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. A funeral mass will be held in his honor at 1:00 PM.

Hilton was more of a brother than a brother-n-law to me. He always welcomed me with a big smile and handshake.
I am so thankful that he was so loving and caring to my sister for so many years as he was to his children and grandchildren. His family came first , no matter what. You could always count on Hilton to be there when needed.
He loved flying as much as he loved his Saints and LSU.
So go now my brother and fly above us with the angels and continue your watch over your family. We will miss you.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Hilton a couple of times at the home of his parents. A kind and well liked person. I know he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. My sincere condolences to the family.
