Vince was a great guy! I worked with him as an apprentice at JJ Madden Co. and have so many fond memories of us working together - his jokes, him playing the banjo, going by Whitey's after work, and so much more. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

My Uncle was an amazing musician and I remember many happy family parties playing music and singing with him. Heaven has a new banjo, fiddle and guitar player.. playing bluegrass, telling jokes and laughing. We'll miss you Uncle Sherry.

I only knew Vince through my friend Jo. I wish we could've met in person, I think we would've been fast friends. Yankees, trivia, and jokes? What's not to love?! My heart breaks for all who knew and loved him. Rest Easy, Vince...thanks for taking care of my friend.

It's so sad when our loved ones pass. We are left with wonderful memories, pictures and life experiences that bring us comfort and joy. I will always remember Vince and Fred Alter on my front porch jamming and the big smile on Vince's face as he sang and strummed his banjo. Jo I wish you peace knowing that Vince is in a better place and free from suffering. Praying for all the family and friends who were touched by him. He's a bright star for us to look up to. May he rest in peace.
