We are sorry for your loss, but happy that we were able to be a part of his life. He always made us laugh...not really a quite guy he was always willing to share one of his thoughts with anyone close by. He will be missed but we all have great stories that will endure. All our best.

Vince, we certainly had a great time working together with the Work Program (you at the Parks, me at the Probation Ofc). You always made my work easier, always had a smile for us, and at Christmas time your rum cake was delicious. You take care now, you'll always be missed by all your family and friends.

Vince was a good man. I worked with him at the county and I know he will be greatly missed by many. He always looked after and cared for the employees working under him. After he retired I would see him working at the Jensen beach concession and he woukd always give me food. He cared about people that way. My condolences to his family. God Bless

To the Bocchino FAMILY. Vince was an important part of my son's growing up experience. Jeff played little league baseball. The values he shared with the kids were the best. I am sure he is with Jesus now. He made a difference and touched many lives.
