It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Vincent, beloved husband of 60 years to Joan. Predeceased by his parents and by his daughter Roberta, he is survived by sisters Irma and Sylvia. Father to Bill (Queenie), Sherri (Fred), Ed (Sue). Best grandfather to 7 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
Vincent was born in Waterville, N.S., and left there to join the RCAF. He spent 25 years in the forces and had a multitude of postings across Canada and Europe. He loved this career and the travelling that came with it.
Vincent loved his hockey, travelling, the outdoors, country music and the Grand Ole Oprey. Mostly he loved his family and spending time with each of them.
He leaves a life of memories and laughter to be remembered by.
