Condolence: My deepest sympathy. Vinnie was a friend of mine at Springfield College. He was one of the kindest people I have ever known. We had many classes together and I will never forget his smile and warm personality.

Condolence: I was so sorry to hear about Vinny's passing. I remember him as a very tough, competitive wrestler. Vinny was also one of the stands-up guys in the Suffolk County coaching community. He was an intense coach, but was always a gentleman. Suffolk County wrestling is diminished because of his passing. Unfortunately I was away earlier this week and just heard about this tragedy today. God speed, Vinny.

Condolence: Dear Vinnie:
You had a special DNA
Of extraordinary gifts that
you shared in remarkable ways.
You touched so many lives
with your beautiful, unselfish heart.
It’s still so hard to understand
Why you had to leave so soon
But, we must have faith and we must trust
That it was part of God’s plan.
Rest in Peace

Condolence: Our Hearts are broken and filled with sorrow at the sudden loss of this great guy. We all loved him very much and we remember all the goodness that was in his heart and how he treated people around him. He always gave the best of himself to his family and to anyone who was fortunate to be in his path. We pray that you find strength and comfort and be at peace knowing that he is in heaven and that one day we will all see him again. It’s not over right now for him it’s just a new beginning . Our family has so many great memories of Vinny. I remember one night it was just Vinny and me sitting on the couch, he was writing down recipes & we were sharing our lives with one another. It was a very special time and we had many laughs together. He will be greatly missed. You and your girls are in our hearts and prayers. We love you all very much.

Condolence: I’m so saddened to hear of Vinny’s passing.I’m so sorry to his entire family. Please take comfort in knowing he will be watching over all of you, and that he is at peace the Lord. My mom was just so overwhelmed by his kindness with his time at Longwood. He remembered her as soon as he ran into her in the hallway. He said you used to bake cookies and bring them to our classroom at Bicycle Path!! I’ve known Vinny since we were that little. He was kind then and has left a legacy of kindness. RIP my friend

Condolence: Vinnie and I became friends during our classes at Stony Brook for our Master's degree. From that we worked together at I.S. 162 in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn. We rode the train together as well as drove to work. The memories are strong. He was a remarkable young man and a tremendous teacher. My deepest condolences to his family.
