Vince was born in Old Perlican on January 11th, 1977. He then lived the rest of his life in Labrador City, where he built a great life and made many life long friendships that quickly turned to family. Vince was always known for how hard he worked all his life, which aided in his proud life of Harley Davison bikes and Dodge trucks. He never asked anyone for help and he made sure no one went without. He never hesitated to put others needs before his own, and always made light of situations.
In retirement he wanted nothing more than a little farm where he and Lynette could watch the grandkids run free. One of the things that made him the happiest in life was the grandkids always putting a smile on his face that couldn't be wiped away. If you thought you could do something, he knew you could! An outstanding son, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle, great uncle and soulmate.
He is forever "Free to Ride".
