Vincent Volpi was born of Guy and Maria Volpi November 17, 1929 on Hamlet Street in Italian Village. He was named for his paternal grandfather. Vincent passed away September 24th, 2017, while receiving treatment for cancer at his home in Tampa. He was a lifelong resident of Columbus but lived in the Westerville Highland Lakes area. Vincent was preceded in glory by his brother Luigi and sisters Carmela and Josephina.

He has three living sons, Vincent III, Victor and Vaughn; and grandchildren, Amanda Victoria, Chase and Brooke Volpi, and Antoinette Volpi. Mr. Volpi served in the occupation forces in Germany when he went into the Army at 17. He was later reactivated for the Korean Conflict where he was stationed in Japan. He was chosen to be part of a radio operating unit for his company and stayed behind for this training while his company was shipped out and subsequently wiped out in the conflict. Mr. Volpi returned home and started working at the Franklin County Engineer's Office as a Truck Driver. He subsequently became a lineman on a survey crew, a crew chief and then a draftsman. He was involved in the production of the County Maps and was ultimately chosen to Head the Franklin County Map Room, from where he retired after more than 40 years of service to the County. Mr. Volpi was graduated from the old Central High School in Columbus and believed in life-long learning. He was active in church and bible study, traveled extensively and dictated his memoirs growing up as an immigrant child in the Columbus of the 20th Century. A private, family and friends service will be held at the Highland Lakes Country Club to Celebrate Mr. Volpi's life.
