Saddened to hear this news. Vincent was a man of integrity, very thoughtful and giving, and always kind even when in difficult situations. I thoroughly enjoyed many chats with him over several decades, usually with funny stories, and appreciated his friendship. Blessed to have known such a good man...Godspeed Vincent

Vincent was a great guy, I'll never forget all his crazy jokes and funny stories. But most of all, I'll never forget the compassion and respect he showed toward other people. Thanks Vincent for being a great example of what kindness looks like.
