Vincent loved working with his hands and found joy in woodworking, fishing, gardening, and cooking. Vincent was also an avid reader and a talented storyteller himself. Those who knew Vincent know that he always had a good story to share.

A devoted husband, Vincent and his wife Melinda shared a beautiful and romantic love story for over 37 years. Vincent’s legacy continues on with their three children, grandchildren, family, and friends who all, without a doubt, have one hell of a story they’ve shared with Vince.
