Born in Hartford on April 24, 1938, he was a son of the late Dominic and Rose (Carabillo) Sapere. Vincent grew up in East Hartford and was a graduate of East Hartford High School. He served proudly in the U.S. Army. Vincent worked as a delivery driver for Auto Parts International. He was a sports lover and avid golfer, and was a member of the East Hartford Men’s Golf League for many years. He enjoyed fishing, going to Mohegan Sun, and trips to Misquamicut Beach and Black Point Beach with stops at Harry’s in Colchester. He also enjoyed cooking delicious Italian meals for his family.

Got to know Vinny back in the 80’s and played a lot of golf with him at EHGC. He was a fabulous golfer, extremely funny and a just plain wonderful man. We will all miss him lots.
