His commitment to hard work and craftsmanship was unwavering throughout his life. Beyond his professional pursuits, Vinnie had a profound love for classic cars, particularly Classic Corvettes. He cherished his collection of vehicles and held a special fondness for his classic 66’ Candy Apple Red Corvette, which brought him immeasurable joy. Additionally, Vinnie found solace and happiness by the beach, indulging in his passion for shooting and his enduring love for football. Vinnie leaves behind a legacy that will be forever treasured. He is survived by his loving daughters, Tracy Fletcher and her husband Jonathan, and Deana Camisa and her husband Robert, along with their mother, Mary Jane Palmisano.
