MARINA, CA – Vincent Interrante, a mail carrier for 33+ years in Pacific Grove, California, died on June 5, 2014 at his home with family around him. Vince was born the fifth of six children to Charles and Josephine Interrante in Norristown, PA. His parents and all his brothers and sisters preceded him in death, as well as two grandsons and one great grandson.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Glenice; as well as three children, Linda Contreras (Frank) of Coarsegold, CA, Laura Alfonso (Joe) of Salinas, and Lee Interrante of Salinas. He leaves eight living grandchildren, ten living great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Vince joined the
in 1951 and served on the U.S.S. Bausell off the coast of South Korea. Later he would serve two tours in Vietnam and other stations here and abroad such as: Alaska, Japan, New Brunswick, Canada, New Jersey, Hawaii, Nebraska, Rome, Italy, Port Hueneme, CA and finally here in Marina. He retired from the Navy at the Post Graduate School in 1978 after 27 ½ years of service.
After retiring from the Navy he soon joined the USPS in Pacific Grove where he worked as a carrier until his retirement in 2012. He loved his work and his patrons and felt like family to many of those same patrons. He loved spending time with his family and most especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren (going to ball games and all activities). He said they kept him young.
Vince was very active in his church, serving as an elder/minister. He was always teaching a Bible Study and absolutely loved the Sundays he was able to preach. He preached at the Hollister and the San Martin Church of Christ for many years and served in a rotation of Church Elders at his church home of Crossroads Christian Church.
A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, July 5, 2014 at 1:30pm at Crossroads Christian Church located at 1035 Rogge Road in Salinas, CA. In lieu of flowers you may donate to his home Church Missionaries at Crossroads Christian Church who are currently in Haiti.
