Vincent M. Altmann

Vincent M. "Vaunker" or "V-Mann" Altmann, 60, of Dunmore, died Saturday at home. His companion for many years was Genny C., Rochester, N.Y.

Born Oct. 19, 1952, he was the son of Frances Doud Altmann of Dunmore and the late Joseph Altmann. He was a graduate of the infamous Dunmore High School, class of 1970. Before retirement, he was employed by the Dunmore School District.

He was an avid Penn State football and St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. He loved to paint pictures for friends and in his younger years, he was game for anything. For many years he was known to frequent local Dunmore establishments.

The family sincerely thanks those who have helped Vince when he needed it.

Also surviving are three brothers, Edward, Union Dale; David and wife, Christine, Duryea; and Robert and wife, Karla, Moosic; a sister, Mary "Cissy" Gavin, Scranton; several nieces and nephews.

He was also preceded in death by a brother, Joseph.

The funeral will be Wednesday from the Albert P. O'Donnell Funeral Home, 2025 Green Ridge St., Dunmore, with Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at St. Mary of Mount Carmel Church, 322 Chestnut St., Dunmore. Interment will be private. All those attending the funeral are asked to proceed directly to the church on Wednesday.

Friends may call Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m.

It was Vince's wish to be surround by his paintings — therefore, we ask of anyone who has received his artwork to please bring it to the viewing for display.
