Vincent Anthony Treglia, 89, of Rocky Hill, originally of Hartford, passed away peacefully on August 14, 2014. Vin was the first-born of his parents, Marco and Marie Treglia. He graduated from Hartford High School in 1943, and entered the U.S. Navy that same year. He was stationed in England and was a Pharmacist's Mate. He was present at the Battle of Normandy in 1944. He received an honorable discharge in 1946, and married the love of his life, Josephine, in 1948. Together they had three children, and 66 years of a life based on love. He was a Lieutenant in the Hartford Fire Department, and also worked for a few years at Aetna, in the printing department. "Dad" loved his family, his dogs, his roses, the Yankees, and Maine. In 1969, Vin and his family moved for a short time to Maine, but returned to Hartford a year later. In 2000 "Vin and Jo" built a new home in Coventry and resided there until 2012. Vin is survived by his wife, Josephine, of Rocky Hill; his daughter, Ann M. Treglia (Richard Hess) of Woodstock; his son Michael N. Treglia (Denise) of Colchester; his son Mark A. Treglia of Torrington; his sister Evelyn Osborne (David) of Chester; his brother Louis Treglia of Avon and many nieces and nephews and friends. His brother Mark predeceased him in 1986. The family also thanks the kind people at Atria, A Caring Hand, and the VNA for their gentle care and support.
