Vincent, affectionately known as "Cousin Vinnie", was a skilled mason. He was a member of New Jersey Locals 8 and 2 of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers since March of 1970. He remained active in the locals and was dedicated to fundraising activities for St. Jude Hospital and other charitable organizations. He was recognized by Cat Country 107.3 radio for his dedication to St. Jude's charitable work. He was a member of St. Monica's Knights of Columbus and also a 4th Degree Knight in Msgr.
