Vincent Michele Eugenio was born in Brooklyn, NY on July 19, 1936 to the late Vincent and Pauline (Vernocchi) Casieri. He is survived by his beloved sons, Vincent and his wife Amy of Deerfield, Illinois, Christopher and his wife Laurie of Croton-on-Hudson, NY, and Paul and his wife Diana of Paramus, NJ, and his cherished grandchildren Alex, Anabel, Nicholas, Jonathan, Caroline, Michael and Stella. He is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Alberta on May 24, 2012, and his brother, Alfred.

Vincent attended The University of Miami where he was a Golden Gloves winning lightweight boxer. He served in the US Army as a Radio Operator where he continued boxing while deployed overseas. After receiving his Masters degree in teaching from Hunter College, Vincent taught physical education and swimming at DeWitt Clinton H.S. and Theodore Roosevelt H.S in the Bronx for 40 years. He was much loved by his fellow teachers and students for his commitment and sense of humor.

Vincent met his beloved wife, Alberta, in 1962 on a blind date and they were married in 1964. Vincent and Alberta had a deep love and truly complemented each other. They were among the first residents to settle in Co-op City in the Bronx in 1970, where they and their sons built many long-lasting close friendships. Vincent was a person of extraordinary energy and exuberance for life, always living in the moment and bringing everyone along for the ride (often without seatbelts). He loved going to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx to buy his favorite Italian food and joke with his many friends there.

Above everything, Vincent loved his family. He was extremely generous throughout his life with his love and support for his three sons, daughters-in-law, and seven grandchildren. We will cherish the memories of his extraordinary life and personality, especially defending his boys’ right to play ball in the courtyard, doing one-armed push ups at their weddings, and lovingly tossing his grandkids a bit too high in the air. His family never wondered for a second if he loved them and he will be greatly missed.
