He is predeceased by his beloved first wife, Lillie and his brother, Mike. Vince's parents were both deeply rooted in their native homeland of Croatia, and instilled in their sons the importance of their culture and ancestry, which Vince valued throughout his life.

Vince was a member of several local clubs and organizations, including the San Pedro Elks Lodge #966 and also lifelong member and past president of the Dalmatian American Club. A Real Estate Broker, Vince owned Trudnich Realty for over 40 years. Vince loved the game of golf and always enjoyed the time he spent with his numerous golf buddies. In recent years his favorite activities included dancing with his wife, Jan, Sunday brunch, walking his dogs and spending time with his grandchildren. Vince is survived by his wife Jan; sons: James (Rosemarie), Larry (Sheri), David, and Mark (Diane). He had the pleasure of being a loving Papa to eleven grandchildren: Sarah (Daniel Schuler) Alexandra, Caitlyn, Daniel, Alyssa (John Alexander), Chelsea, Amanda, Ryan, Arianna, Nathan, and Cade; and four great-grandchildren.
