Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry to hear of Vince’s death. He was such a warm and caring person towards everyone including all the members of my family. I’ve missed hearing his “hell-looooow Laura.” Vince and Joan were great friends and neighbors. Love and blessings to Kathy and family.

  2. Very sad to hear of Vincent's death. He was a real gentleman. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

  3. Vince was my friend. He helped me during a very rough time in my life. Spending time with him and Joan was always a pleasant time. I will miss them both. I know that things were failing over the last few years, but I will never forget his caring and patience. My friend is now back with Joan and is no longer struggling. May he rest in God's peace!

  4. Vince and Joan are finally together again, running through green fields and reciting their favorite literary piece. They were the epitome of a charming couple, as neighbors they were the best. I will miss them. Vince had a gentle wit and twinkle in his eye. Rest In Peace dear friend❤️Forever in our hearts.

  5. I first met Vince when I moved into town in 1988. He was lectoring at St. John's Church and I was struck by his rich baritone delivery and made point to introduce myself and thank him. Since then I have always found a ready "home" with Vince and, of course, with Joan … forever welcoming, gracious, witty and engaging. Peace to them both now reunited. – Owen Sheridan
