Vince was a heavy-duty mechanic at Falconbridge Nickel mine, he retired in 1998 after 31 years of service, he was a man with a heart of gold, and he truly couldn't do enough to help you out. He loved his classic cars, he loved hunting, he enjoyed working in his garage, and when he wasn't working, he loved to ride his side by side and his snow machine. His favorite ride was to Wolf Mountain, he just loved the view. He worked hard and he played hard, he truly loved life. The family would like to express a very heartfelt thank-you to Dr. St-Martin and the staff at Pioneer Manor for the care they provided him. In keeping with his wishes, there is no service however a celebration of life and a ride to Wolf Mountain in his honor will be planned for this Spring.
