From Umberto Parente, nephew of Vincenzo: Condoglianze a tutti, questo per noi è un giorno molto triste, è venuto a mancare una persona umile e molto rispettabile che tanti anni fa è partito dall'Italia per cercare lavoro in America, ricordo con molto piacere quando mi raccontava dell'amore per l'Italia la sua patria, quando è venuto a trovarci nel lontano 1998 l'ultima volta che ha visto la sua terra natale Gallo Matese, prima di andare via disse piangendo a suo fratello Antonio che forse era l'ultima volta che vedeva la sua patria, ieri è finita la storia di uno dei tanti umili italiani che hanno fatto grande l'America con il sacrificio e l'amore per la famiglia. Ricordo con grande affetto quando nel 2008 sono stato a trovarlo in San Jose, sempre allegro e spensierato questo è il ricordo che portò dentro, insieme alle tante telefonate e chiacchierate fatte insieme. Un grande ultimo saluto a questo grande uomo che ci ha lasciati.

Vincenzo was a kind, caring, compassionate man who I was blessed to have as a friend and companion. He loved his family, dancing, singing and going to places that were new experiences. We enjoyed many social events, dancing at the senior centers, monthly trips to the casinos, movies, festivals, trips to Half Moon Bay, San Francisco and Monterey, outings with my daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was such a big and precious part of my family, and was so deeply loved and cherished. His passing has been a devasting loss for me and my family. We send our heartfelt condolences to the family. Your father was a beautiful and great man who will forever be in our hearts and memories.

Dear Pazquilino, Dominic, Tonino and Silverio:
It with extreme sadness and heartfelt sympathy that I send my condolences on the loss of your beloved father. Our family was so fortunate to know and love him so much! His infectious smile, love of dancing and singing, and loving ways had him become a huge and precious part of our family. We all loved him so much and the kids adored him. He was at all family events, and spent memorable time with my mom Gloria, They enjoyed so many outings and trips together where people would just fall in love with him. I was fortunate to tag along with my mom and Vincenzio on many trips that will always be fond memories for me. We have missed him profoundly since his move to Temecula, but always stayed connected through Pazquilino. Thank you Paz for all your communication, pictures, videos and phone calls!

I know he will be “dancing and singing” in heaven with all of the angels who will welcome him!

With love,

Vickie Castro
