OBITUARY

Vincent Greenwood Ahern

December 7, 1921October 21, 2019

Vincent G. Ahern, aged 97, of Plano TX, passed away in the early hours Monday, October 21st.

He was born in Dallas, TX on December 7th, 1921. Vincent graduated from North Dallas High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Southern Methodist University.

Vincent’s university studies were interrupted by World War II. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps and worked as an airplane mechanic. He was proud of his service, and in recent years, he loved to wear his Army Air Corps cap with the WWII Veteran pin. He had many wonderful conversations with the folks who would thank him for his service. Following the army, Vincent had a distinguished career as an Engineer in sales and was the founding partner of Atlas Engineering, Inc. He was a proud member of the Engineer’s Club in Dallas.

As a lifelong Catholic, Vincent’s faith was the foundation of his life and he lived it every day. He was a parishioner of St. Mark’s Catholic Community of Plano where he served as an usher and was a member of the Serra Club and the Empty Nesters.

Vincent married the love of his life, Florence Muse, on May 27th, 1949. They recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary after raising six children and doting on 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

Among those who will deeply miss the presence of Vincent in this life are his lovely bride, Florence Muse Ahern, his children and children-in-law Michael and Maureen Ahern, Margaret Duffy, Kevin Ahern, John and Celeste Ahern, Alice and Mark Stepneski, and Andrew and Kristin Ahern, grandchildren Elizabeth Ahern, Sean and Brittany Ahern, Shannon Duffy, Cynthia Duffy, James and Katie Lewis, Chris and Megan Lewis, Andrew Stepneski with Nicki Elliott, Mary and Charles Tye, Nicholas Stepneski, Aidan Ahern, and great-grandchildren Harvey Ahern, Evelyn Duffy, Jonathan McDairmid, Taylor McDairmid, Zana Lewis, Brigid Lewis, Jimmy Lewis, John Lewis, Genevieve Lewis, Peter Lewis, Levi Lewis, Lorelai Lewis, Adalaide Lewis, Finnian Lewis, and Isla Tye, great-great-grandchild Colton McDairmid, and friends too numerous to list.
