Vincent loved to go fishing, camping, walking in Sharon Woods Park and playing Santa for Creative Child Care Centers, and nursing homes at Christmas time. He was an active member of the Community of Christ Church, he loved singing, especially the old-time hymns. He also liked 50’s and country music as well. He was a good man who would help anyone he could. He also loved carpentry, painting and socializing with others.
