You told me it was never to late for me to change my life. You seen me at my worst and told me it wasn't over yet. You drove me to detox and I've been clean now for 16 months 15 days. Your going to be missed. Love you my friend. Fly High and watch over us all. You gave me hope and for that your my hero. I get to be a great father and Grandpa today you helped save my life.

Uncle Vince,
Max 2,000 words isn't enough to describe what this man meant to me and his family. This was so unexpected and I am so heart broken by this. There are no words that can describe what you really meant to me and us all. Your absence will be felt every single day. You played a huge role my life growing up, Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for caring and loving me throughout my life. My children will know all about their great Uncle Vince and his hilarious " HeHeHe" laugh. You lived wonderful life here on earth and I know you will be watching over us in heaven. Rest in peace Uncle Vince, I love you.

Uncle Vince, I cannot begin to tell how much I will miss you. We definitely have grown a lot closer and I loved all the stories you shared with me. Some were inappropriate but funny and that showed the kid side of you. You moved here to America with your family started a wonderful life here. You were a hard working, good, funny. Sincere person. Always provided for your family and always had a camera or video camera in your hand at family get togethers. We are blessed to have all these memories about you to remember for years to come. I always knew I could talk to you. You always helped me whenever I needed a ride or to borrow your car. Dependable is what I would call you and honest and trustworthy. The last thing we made together was chicken spiedini and that was so yummy. My heart is heavy along with so many others but together we will get through this. Having good people around like you uncle vince is all you need. May GOD give you peace now that you are in heaven.

Uncle vince always new how to make me smile. He would always tell me the story when he first met me on his first date with my aunt kris. He said you were a small little thing and start to laugh. Then proceed to tell me the story. I never told him how much I enjoyed listening to his stories. He never talk to me for very long but when he did he always made me feel like I mattered. I Love you uncle Vince!!

We had the pleasure(?) of canoeing with Vince, Kris, Angela, and Sonny many years ago. What should have been a four hour leisurely paddle down the Sac turned into a quick two hour paddle. Vince had watched “Deliverance” a few days before and moved along fairly quickly! We had the normal circumstances of 3 boys getting highsided playing around, as well as a few tip-overs! But, did have a bit of a “Deliverance” moment when a young man went to shore to relieve himself, Vince handled it with style and grace, explaining since there were mixed sexes the young man was just trying to be discreet. Did have a lot of fun swimming and playing around waiting the two hours to be picked up! Will miss him terribly.
