Our prayers are with the family at this time of your great loss of your husband, father, grandfather, and brother. I only have wonderful memories of Vince as I worked beside him at Progressive Plastics, Inc. Vince was a great friend and was always putting himself last when it came to his friends and working peers. He always talked of his great loving family. God Bless all of you. Sharon, Dave Tasker along with daughters Kelley, Karen, and Kathy
