To try and put into words the kind of man Grandpa Vince was seems impossible. I could always look foward to going to visit him because there was never one time he couldn't make me smile. He was full of laughter, jokes, and love and he did his best to make sure everyone around him had a good time. Growing up he would always do things to make Jenny and I feel special. Even through my time of rebellion he NEVER lost faith in the person I could be, he NEVER judged me, he ALWAYS loved me. To hear my grandma tell me how proud of me he was is the greatest gift I have ever received. I will miss you for the rest of my life Grandpa! I love you so much and you will always be in my heart! Grandma will never be alone, we will all be there for her and I will personally make it my goal to make sure Grandma still has the laughter, jokes(even though none can beat yours), and love surrounding her. I will see you someday but until then I couldn't have been blessed with a better Grandpa than you! The way you loved your Packers amazed me! I may not always agree with the team you chose, but loved joking around with you about football. This season Grandpa I will pull my green and gold out of the closet and I will root for them the way you would, in your honor! I love you Grandpa Vince! Kelly

Vince is my father-in-law. Over the years he became more like a father to me and eventually he became one of my best friends. I loved this man. I will miss him dearly. I will miss going to Packers and Brewers games with him and just getting together to have a few beers occasionally. We had so many rich conversations over the past few years. He really trusted me and relied on me for so many different things and that meant so much to me. We'll take good care of Mom Vince. God bless you!!!

Being the child of this man was the greatest gift I could have been given. His watchful eye every time I turned down the wrong path, his infamous "way" of guiding me back home, his loving, affectionate words when I needed them the most. His biggest impact on my life was showing me what real love and commitment was by watching his love for my mother. Everyday in this journey without him will be bittersweet, knowing that his words of encouragement will be just a memory, but knowing that he is with the Lord, and that I will see him again. Anyone who knows him, smile when you think of him and remember his passion for letting everyone he met, his knowledge of the location of lost class rings :)I Love You Dad! I will see you soon!

Grandpa Vince was a one in a million Grandfathers. Absolutely no one could compare to the whitty, charismatic, loving and sweet man I knew as my grandpa. He always had a smile on his face and was always happy to hear from his family. Conversations with him on the phone, consisted of him calling me his babe and girlfriend and always ending with "I love you very much you're a sweetheart." Those words will be missed. The love Grandpa have for his family and me was amazing, much like the wind we feel when we step outside. We can't see it...but we can feel it everyday. He was a great man and a great Grandpa to me and will be dearly missed. I love you very much Grandpa! Jenny

Grandpa Vince was the individual that originally got me hooked on the game of golf. I always heard stories of him playing with his friends at Fox Valley and despite living hundreds of miles away for the majority of my life, I wanted to be involved. I was young enough, and probably cocky enough at that young age (some may also call it naieve) to think that I could instantly pick up a golf club and go compete with my granddpa. I talked a mean game over the phone with him and we established that we would play for $.25 per hole. Needless to say that when I showed up, I was less than prepared for the "spring weather" that was still around that time of year and we tee'd off in 55 degree weather and 10-20 mph winds. Neither of us were thrilled with the weather, but it had taken so long for us to finally get together than we weren't going to let it stop us. About the 13th or 14th hole I was beginning to get frustrated and how badly I was playing and slammed my club into the ground out of disgust. Grandpa walked up, kindly handed me the sand to refill my divot and told me "You're not good enough to get that mad." To this day, whenever I hit a shot that isn't quite what I had in mind, those are the words that come into my head. Grandpa, you influenced me in so many ways and I only wish I could have shared all of them with you. I cherish the memories of you coming to my wedding reception and dancing with Chelsea, her mom and Grandma...the pictures simply do not do it justice and it was a perfect evening. I will always miss your Woody Woodpecker impression as I enter the house, but more than anything I will miss your friendship. Hit 'em straight and know that I love you.
