I have such good memories of Vince and Lucille and all the kids when we attended Hope Missionary Church together. Such a loving happy family lead by a great father and husband. I am so sorry to hear of Vince's passing and will keep the family in my prayers. Laura Miller Iida and family

Thank you, family, for a beautiful home-going service. All possible because of Jesus. We've been so blessed to be relatives of Vince and Lucille. They were so faithful in helping take care of Mother. I'll always be grateful. Lyle and Phyllis Augsburger

Schumacher Family,
I just talked to my dad and learned of Vince's passing. It just broke my heart. Your whole family was more like relatives through the years. I am so very sorry for your loss. Somehow, I just believe Mom and Jean are so excited that the old gang is starting to get back together in Heaven! I so wish I could be there, I will be in town a week from tomorrow! So many good memories of the Old Hope Gang, and Vince as the song leader. He and your mom were so gracious to us when we were moving and let us stay with them. I miss my Christmas card from them. My thoughts and prayers are with you today. All our love, Kent & Terri Steffen

Vince and Lucille babysat for my daughter, Ashtyn Humerickhouse, when they were our neighbors in Rose Ann Heights. Such great people. So sorry to hear of the passing of Vince. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Vincent and Lucille were a wonderful couple and Vince was a prince of a guy in all of my memories of him, whether a young boy, teen, or an adult. It was always a joy to see them, whether they were visiting my parents or we were visiting them. You knew you were accepted and welcomed by the huge smiles on their faces and their gracious, loving behavior. I am sad indeed to hear of his passing and am confident he has heard, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

Vince was a neat cousin...the same age as my sister Amy. My memories include his flying a kite so high we couldn't see it, and the little electrical toy motors and a microscope he gave me. He was an engineer and partially inspired me to pursue the same field. Now he has joined the grand Neuenschwander reunion. The grandchildren are going by one. Paul Leightner
