He is survived by his adoring wife of nearly 38 years Andi Maceo, daughter Gina Maceo Ross, son Victor Maceo, daughter Angela Maceo and granddaughters Katie Ross, Michelle Ross, Julia Ross, sisters Concetta Garsee and Annette Goza, and numerous loving cousins. Vince was born October 15, 1941 to Katie Gigliotta and Vic Maceo in Galveston. He was raised in Galveston and graduated from Kirwin High School, where he played football. He also enjoyed being a lifeguard.
Vince is a 1963 graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in Business Administration. He was a member of the Corps of Cadets and remained close to his fellow Aggies throughout his life.
Vince and Andi were married December 1, 1975. They were involved in the activities of their children, their church, and the Houston business community and charities.
Vince had a successful 35 year sales career at Xerox Corporation. He was a Global Account Manager overseeing managers of Fortune 500 accounts. During his tenure, Vince enjoyed 25 years of Xerox President's Club recognition at annual company-sponsored trips.
Since retiring from Xerox, Vince pursued many leisurely activities with his Aggie buddies and fellow "Xeroids". He enjoyed spending time in College Station where, in the traditional 12th Man Spirit, they threw football parties celebrating Aggie football whether the games were home or away. He took great pleasure in telling tall tales, some of which were actually true.
Vince enjoyed playing golf and watching Aggie sports. He adored his family and enjoyed watching his beautiful granddaughters grow up. He is remembered as "funny, charming, handsome, and gracious...a true gentleman." His children recall his integrity and when they were faced with a difficult choice, he'd always ask "what's the right thing to do?"
Vince was a man of deep faith and he enjoyed a close personal relationship with his Heavenly Father.
He was a proud Aggie, a special friend, a devoted son, a loyal and faithful husband. He loved his country but most of all he was a nice Italian boy.
He will be missed by all who knew him.
