Vince was a much loved brother-in-law to me and Uncle to Alicia and Scott. My deepest sympathy to his children and their families and, also, to Megan. She was so dear to him and he never failed to share his feelings for her in our telephone conversations. Rest in peace!

Rest In Peace, dear Vince. You were always so upbeat and kind to me at Silver Coast and talking to me about playing the dulcimer and volunteering.
We will miss your smiling face but are glad that you are now at peace. See you line dancing on the other side !❤️💕

We have only known Vince a short time but he became family to us. We moved in this neighborhood and he welcomed us, introduced us to linedance, sat on our porch for hours drinking coffee sharing stories and memories. We had many laughs. There is an emptiness in our hearts, he will be missed. Our sympathy and love to his family and and his life partner and best friend Megan.

It is difficult to put into words what my friendship with Vince meant to me. He was a character, for sure, but also a man of character. Kind, caring, loving, and always genuine. I was first drawn to him because he was so like my dad; he was a firefighter, a cook for the crews, a meat cutter ,and a jack of all trades able to fix anything. But unlike Dad, he was very devilish and mischievous! In fact, unlike anyone I ever knew before! He gave me a great deal, teaching me how to fix things, reason things out, be courageous in the face of new things, and how to understand and deal with all kinds of people and issues. He made me laugh. Vince was unique. He was a wonderful man. And as I told him, he was one of the smartest men I ever met. I will always remember my friend Vince.

Vince will be missed . He was a good friend, for the 20 plus years I knew him. Just before he moved on to heaven,he said " the next time you see me I'll be strong and healthy". His faith was strong in his last days. Truely you are missed and loved !!!

Vince was a dear, sweet friend who introduced me to the dulcimer. I loved playing in our group with him leading us. He taught me a lot about playing. He was fun to be around & we became fast friends. We loved to talk & spent many hours talking on the phone. I will miss my phone buddy & his smile , his hugs & his sense of humor. My deepest condolences to his family & life partner, Megan. I will remember him with love.
