Vince, your smile, sense of humour, and intellect were unmatched. I am so grateful that you chose my lab for your dissertation research. I was just starting up my lab, and you were instrumental in its success, More importantly, you were a spark of joy in all our lives. May you soar now in heaven. God bless.

Vince and Lori lived in a small house I owned in Richmond in the 1980's. Vince was very smart and had a great sense of humor, they moved from the house just after their son was born. Vince and Lori were also sweet neighbors to have (we lived basically next door). I remember Vince telling me that his mother was concerned because she felt he had not inspected the house well enough before moving in. Vince told me he said "Mom, the guy is from Waynesboro". I guess he felt like I would have been honest about my description of the inside. So sorry for Vince leaving this earth too early. Tom & Jeannie Elliott

I met Vincent at Avante where I was employed. My fondest memories of Vince was his determination to use his computer which his classmates had given him. He would roll up to my office and ask me if I had a time could I come and help him with a certain website.He loved his music and his favorite tv shows, and his favorite snacks! What an awesome man he was!! He will surely be missed by his family and staff.
