I was fortunate to know Phyllis and Vincent through my job at the post office and as a fellow member of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. They were a lovely couple and truly devoted to each other. Prayers for all your family. He will be greatly missed.

One of the many rewards from being a driver for Nauset Neighbors was having the opportunity to meet and know Vince and Phyliss Seeing their love and positive attitude in spite of having to deal with health issues made those trips to and from Hyannis something to look forward to as it made me realize how blessed we are. I am thankful to them and know Vince is now at peace receiving his rewards from our loving God. My prayers will be not only for him but for Phyliss and their family. Peter Newman

No one could have had a better father than we did. Dad was an amazing man, intelligent, kind hearted and a fantastic sense of humor. He was devoted to his wife and children and made us all feel special. He loved life and his big smile is how I will remember him. I have a large hole in my heart , but I know he's smiling down at us from heaven.
I will miss and love him forever.
Daughter Phyllis
