Vinnie was born in Paterson NJ, on April 9th, 1949. He was raised in West Paterson. He
graduated Passaic Valley Regional High School, class of 1967. Vinnie went on to join the
National Guard full time where he achieved the rank of SFC. After leaving the National Guard in
1985, he went on to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors with his brother Lou, where they
operated a successful arcade business for many years. Vinnie went on to work for BAE Systems
for over 20 years and retired as the Shipping and Handling Supervisor.
His passions included playing guitar and entertaining his family in any way possible. He played
in several bands over the years, starting with Benjamin's Mess, then The Hillary Street Bridge
and ending with Administrators + 2. The loving relationship that he and Mariaelena had was an
inspiration to us all.
The family has chosen to arrange a memorial mass which will be held on Tuesday, November
24th at Our Lady of The Holy Angels Church at 9:30 AM. Due to restrictions, there will be a
limited number of people allowed in the church. The mass will be live streamed on the Holy
Angels Facebook page for those who cannot attend. In lieu of flowers, consider making a
donation to an organization in Vinnie's memory, listen to your favorite song that reminds you of
him, or spend time laughing with family and friends.
