Vincent R. Sombrotto,
Was truly, a one of a kind!
He had inner strength and insight,
And a razor sharp mind!
Sombrotto knew his people,
So he utilized one thing!
He hand picked devoted members,
And took them under his wing!
For those close to Vinnie,
It came as no surprise!
He had strong convictions,
And very street wise!
If a person challenged Sombrotto,
To a verbal debate!
They might rethink, "challenge,"
That was their first mistake!
Vincent had the "Guts,"
To call a National Strike,!
For better Carrier pay,
And bargaining rights!
From strengthening our Health Plan,
To reforming the "Hatch Act!"
What Vincent had envisioned,
Kept our Union on track!
Though Vinnie has left us,
His accomplishments, will live on!
The NALC is stronger!
Solidarity's our common bond!
Under Vincent Sombrotto's leadership,
Our Union made great gains!
For it was more than obvious,!
The NALC flowed in his Veins!

Thank you Mr. Sombrotto for all you did for us the letter carrier from your Branch 36 The Bronx
February 1, 2013
He was the greatest union leader the letter carrier ever had. He will surely be missed. He could have achieved any goal he set his mind to and what a great mind he had. He never forgot his roots and he loved his fellow man and his fellow man loved him. May God welcome him and bless his and comfort his family.
