Loving Zio to Carlo (Sandra, Myla, Gia) Andre, Cristina (Ben, Giorgia, Jackson), David, Nicole (David), Jenna, Simon, Melissa (Robert), Jonathan, Téa, Sofia, and Andrea.

Vince was wildly passionate about his family and had a strong sense of adventure.  On sunny days he could be found by the pool with his family and friends, riding his Harley-Davidson, or snowmobiling and enjoying a cigar.  He will be dearly missed.
