Vince was a devoted family man and a skilled machinist and custom artisan with a high work ethic. Known as Vinnie to some, he spent most of his adult life volunteering for the Legion of Terror haunted house performing as the Beast Master. He enjoyed golf, chess, fishing, and spinning vinyl on one of his multiple turntables. Vince also loved listening to his daughter, Bethany, play the saxophone. He was a devoted caregiver to all of the family's pets, and especially his dogs Poncho, who preceded him in death and Pretzel, who has exceeded his life expectancy.
