I knew Vince well and I will miss him. He could say the strangest things and get into trouble like a little boy, but he also had a great heart and was always helping people around the neighborhood. More than one "little old lady" was carefully escorted across the street by Vince. Rest in peace Vince.

VINCE WAS A GREAT HEARTED GUY AND HE WILL BE MISSED. I CAN NOT AT ALL BELIEVE MY NEIGHBOR AND FRIEND HAS LEFT US. IT IS WAY TO QUIET NOW AND I MISS THE FRIENDLY NOISE OF MY FRIEND AND NEIGHBOR VINCE.

HE LEFT US WAY TO YOUNG. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH VINCE AND HIS FAMILY AT THIS TIME.

HIS FRIEND,
CONNIE JO

Vince was always the one guy you could call any time and count on. Never judgmental, always providing comfort in the form of flowers, phone calls or visits. I will never forget you. I miss you already. You've left a hole in my heart.

Vince was a dear family friend that everyone loved. I loved the stories that he used to tell me. I loved him and miss him.

Vincent was a great brother. He used to try and introduce me to everyone when I visited . When he came to visit me, he met more people in a week than I did in a year. He would tell me about his nice neighbors and friends.

He always meant well. The last time I saw him, he took care of me because I couldn't walk after running my half marathon. He told everyone that he wanted me to be taken care of, and he did. He asked me to run his business if something ever happened to him and I will. He was my best friend and he will live in our hearts forever.

Thank you all for your kind words.

To Ron and family,
We're so sorry and saddened with you. Vince was our little brother, great 'playmate' to our girls and a great friend to our neighbors up here. We were looking forward to him coming up to visit next weekend as we always looked forward to his other visits. He taught us how to make wonton soup and added even more to our lives by being himself.

We pray for God's peace that passes all understanding be multiplied for you and us whose lives Vince touched.

I knew him as Nick and he was the only customer to bring me flowers. I will miss him greatly and he was a pleasure to work with. Our last conversation we were planning to go downtown to hit up some bars. He was one of the nicest peeps I ever met. I know one day I will see him again!!

I met Vincent 8 years ago and the moment we met I felt as though I had known him for a life time. It was as though two beings had come together for a reason. We had many conversations encompassing people, world economics, spiritual blessings and the many reasons to give back so that others could "pay it forward"

Vincent will be missed, God Bless.

Vince and I met while doing our graduate program at UOP. We were a group of 4 people, and became very close over the course of the last 4 years. Vince was one of the most sweetest, thoughtful and genuine people I've ever known. He would do anything to help someone in need. Despite, our busy schedules we all tried to meet once a month or once every couple of months. The last time was just last month to celebrate the a baby shower for one of our close friends.

He became one of my very best friends and I will miss him dearly. I will miss his stories, his laugh and his friendship....everything about him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and I will never ever forget him.

God Bless. RIP.

Vince was not only a neighbor ... but a good friend! I never saw him without a smile on his face. (even when he might have gotten into a little trouble here and there) :)

Vince joined me many days taking my 2 dogs for walks. Whenever he saw us he would come running down the street asking if he could join us. My pups will miss him too! They perked up everytime he was around.

Now we pass his apt and all I can do is remember him - which usually brings a giggle out - thinking of his joking/playful mannar. What he would say to us this time if he was here.......

I am still in shock -

May he rest in peace - may his spirit live on
