    We were so sorry to hear of his passing. We send our sincerest condolences. He was a good neighbor and friend.

  • The Hartwell’s says:

    Vince was our neighbor for 25+ years. We have so many fond memories of him. Watching fireworks together on the 4th, hanging out at the dog park while our pups played, and seeing his face light up when the grandkids came to visit are just a few memories that make me smile. The best memories though were made at his kitchen table talking about life. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his children, grandchildren and extended family.
