Vinny was one of the finest gentlemen I have ever known. His Irish wit was unmatched. All who knew him will sorely miss him. May the road rise to meet you! Rest in Peace!

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
