Proud Grandpa of Casimir Olha; Ryan, Sean, Ellen Nearing and Eva Sanz, step- Grandpa to Stephanie and Nik Dragatakis and Christopher Chase-Onions; Great-Grandpa of Calvin Olha. Born May 5, 1924 in Czechoslovakia, Vincent immigrated to Canada in 1948.

He had a successful career as a Commercial Artist, and throughout his life he enjoyed painting, creating and leaving his many oil paintings as his legacy to his family. He will also be remembered for his many talents; singing and dancing, and his athleticism, which brought him and others great joy and pleasure.
