I remember Vinny from St.Joseph's in Brooklyn,his Aunt was Sister Vincent Joseph and he always was in our plays at school, I also remember him when he led the band for the catholic processions. He was a sweet and wonderful kid, and he will be missed by many. God Bless Him.

I had the pleasure of meeting Vincent Schiavelli at the Vancouver BC Film Festival. I never met a more wonderful man in all my life. I believe he was an angel here on earth.
I will always cherish my memory of him.

Rest in peace Vincent
I miss you

Vincent, you were a poet and artist at Bishop Loughlin High School, but most of us were too young and provincial to realize your talents. I devoured "Brucculinu",as it unleashed so many memories of our lost Brooklyn. The sights, sounds,traditions and, of course, the flavor of our Sicilian heritage in the "old neighborhood" came to life again. Thank you for that labor of love.

I remember meeting Vinny at his friend Mergie's house on Jamaica Avenue in 1965. He was always fun to be with, sincere and so intelligent. He would morph into characters in front of us and keep us entertained for hours. As I watched his career develop from the Christmas Tree ( which he would portray and entertain us with on the train to school) to a great actor, I always remebered fondly those young years and the impression Vinny made on all of us. Godspeed.

My wife Charlotte and met Vincent in Rome in 2003, and corresponded for a year. Over that time he wrote of his plans for Polizzi Generosa. He invited me to be one of his "consiliaris." It would have been something.

We learned of his death the night of the Academy Awards. Very sad news. Our thoughts and prayers to his family, especially to Andreas

Vinny and I graduated from a Brooklyn Elementry School (St. Joseph Patron School) in 1962...he was a nice kid that grew up to be a nice man...see ya later Vinny.

I first met Vinny (1966, I think) when the Dramatics Club girls from St Angela Hall went to Bishop Loughlin to help out with the play, "The Man Who Came To Dinner." Of course he had the lead. Even at age 18, we all saw his talent. A group of us travelled back and forth on the 'A' train after rehearsals. We were all together in the subway when New York City had that big blackout and we had to walk single file on the catwalk out into the night. (My mom came and drove everyone home.) I had the good fortune to be his date for Loughlin's Senior Prom and to be his friend. I was a Sophmore and Vinny was the first boy I had ever dated. He would sing folk songs on a guitar, smoke his pipe and filled a book with beautiful poetry. He was always calm, gentlemanly, fun, enchanting and interesting. He had that gift of letting people know that what they said was important to him. He helped me write a Speech on 'The Most Vexing Problem Facing the Next President of the United States' for the VFW. It was my first, last and only Speech but i WON a HUGE trophy. I ran into him in Soho not too long after he did that little supermarket cashier spot in Barbra Streisand's 1974 movie "For Pete's Sake' If you blinked you missed him but I knew it was Vinny and I was not surprised. When I told him I had seen him, he told me that he could live for six months on what he had made. (We were hippies then and could live on almost nothing anyway.) I remember he had absolutely the most beautiful, blond Swedish girl I had ever seen hanging on his arm. After that, I followed his career like everyone else and have always been very proud of him. It's been 40 years now and Vinny's the kind of person that stays in your heart always. I was happy to learn of his marriage to Carol and I know their years together were magical. His family and children will always be proud of him as Vinny IS truly a 'Great Man'. He is well loved and fondly remembered by everyone whose life he touched.
