Vince attended Northern Garrett High School and was a member of the football team, track and field, and yearbook club. He had many great friends from high school that he stayed in touch with through the years.
Vince and Megan met in 1999 and were married in 2005 at Eastern Garret Fire Hall September 3rd, 2005. Their son Gregory was born in 2007 and Jack was born in 2009. He loved his boys with every fiber of his being and would do anything for them.
He loved his family most of all, but second to that he loved food. He was an excellent chef with a knack for flavors. He cooked all over the county throughout his life, but most notably as executive chef at Au Petite Paris, The Draft Sports Bar and Grille, and his own business Dedi's Kitchen, with partner Joey De Lorenzo.
Vince was an avid football fan and a lover of all sports which he passed onto his sons. He particularly followed the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins, and was somewhat of a fanatic.
Vince was especially an excellent friend. He has always awed me with his ability to maintain friendships, often with people who needed it most during dark times. His capacity for love and forgiveness was massive.
Vince has been loved with a love beyond all feeling and will be missed with a grief beyond all tears.
