To Patrick,Maria,Carl,Ann,Paul, Keith; Just got back to the states, and heard the saddened news of your fathers' passing. He was a good soft spoken man, and remember him never to lose his temper. One memory I have, was when we were returning to New Jersey when I was six years old, and we took your father to Newark Airport, as he had been home on leave from the army. I remember being impressed by the fact that I was related to a real soldier. Some years later, I remember his marriage to Mary in Carmel. a remarkable smart and pleasant woman. May they both rest and peace and join the company of all our loved ones long gone. My deepest sympathy, Bob !

We hold you all in our prayers at this rough time. We both loved talking to Vinny when we saw him. My last memory of him was this St. Patrick’s Day down here in Florida. I was trying to help him with his new smartphone and we both had to have a teenager help us. It was comical. May this wonderful man Rest In Peace. He will be missed.
