The citizens of Garden City, Long Island, New York, have just named a thoroughfare in their fair city after Vincent. He passed away several months ago as you may recall. Vince was an Alpha Tau Omega fraternity brother of John Elmer (JD) and I (Bux). JD and Vince were St. Lawrence University, class of 1955, I was class of '56.
We fished and hunted together in St. Lawrence County as students, and later took part in the annual deer hunting at the Stillwater Club. Vince was truly a "one of a kind"....he generated more stories with his "off the wall" activities and adventures than any five other men I have known. He was a devout Roman Catholic, Irish lineage to the bone, a fine husband, father, uncle and grandfather.
It's nice to see that Garden City realized the special man he was....and he never took himself seriously. Even now, I can't help smiling when I think of him as a fraternity brother and later, as a life long friend.
Those here who have met Vince will know exactly how JD and I felt of him. We were brothers and kindred spirits.

That's a grand thing for Vince. I only met him once and enjoyed every minute of his company.
