  4. Vincent was a good man. Kind and caring he had a quick wit. He always spoke so highly of his wife and daughter it was obvious how much he loved them. God bless.

  5. May he feel the Arms of Jesus surrounding him and his family during this time of loss and sorrow.

    Vincent and I work together at the USMMA in Kings Point. Vincent processed all my requisitions for orders and all the countless corrections, emails, phone calls, and the laughs we had.. and the gossip we talked.

    What a Guy!

    I was glad to hear he was retiring so he could go and enjoy life… This was a hard read and hope he did not suffer I did not know he was ill and his passing made my heart heavy.

    I am still at the USMMA and am still doing Requisitions!!! OMG !!! It's not the same without you Vin.

    My Condolences to Gloria and Danielle and the entire Petti family. God Bless you all.
