Uncle Grandpa you will be missed but the memories of you will live on forever. The countless Christmases, Thanksgivings, and family get togethers were special because of you. Your love for Buddy (Budwiser the dog), your big comfy chair, the peanut jar you always shared, the roaring fires at Christmas, the turkey you carved at Thanksgiving... and countless more memories are special because of you. I’m sad there will be no new ones from here on, but will cherish the ones I have all the more. Rest in peace and I hope you are living it up. I love you.

Jackie, our prayers and condolences to you and your family. As you know, Vince was always one of my very favorite people and absolutely the best storyteller I have known in my almost 80 years.

Jackie and family, please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Vince. I worked with him for many years at Western Electric/AT&T. I also worked with Mark. Frank and I played golf with you two at MVCC. All of you were much better than I; but you put up with me anyway. I'm sure you have many fond memories of your life together. They will stay with you forever!
