Vince grad­u­ated from Beth­le­hem Academy in Farib­ault, served in the Army Air Force as a cadet pi­lot and grad­u­ated from St. John’s Univer­sity in 1949. He mar­ried Carol Joan Nel­son, whom he met at In­ter­na­tional Har­vester. They raised 4 ram­bunc­tious boys in South­west Min­neapo­lis. Vince then worked for Ameriprise and Apache Cor­po­ra­tion as an ad­min­is­tra­tor of tax in­for­ma­tion. Vince en­joyed travel, bridge, bik­ing, fish­ing, golf, hunt­ing and rais­ing Christ­mas trees on his beloved tree farm. His mind was sharp to the end.

He and Joan en­joyed an ac­tive life­style in their re­tire­ment with their com­mu­nity at Care­free Coun­try Club in Win­ter Haven, FL. They made many new friends and had fun to­gether. Vince lived out his fi­nal years at Main­street Vil­lage and then Mt. Olivet Care­view. He served as Pres­i­dent of the Res­i­dents and was also loved by many vis­i­tors and care­givers at Mt. Olivet. We are grate­ful for the lov­ing care Vince re­ceived. Many staff, friends and fel­low res­i­dents came out of the wood­work to say good­bye on his last day and wish him safe pas­sage to his eter­nal home with Je­sus.

Me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at Mt. Olivet Care­view Chapel, 5517 Lyn­dale Ave. So. Mpls., MN 55419 on Fri­day, Novem­ber 17th at 10:30 AM with visi­ta­tion one hour prior. Pri­vate in­ter­ment at Fort Snelling Nat’l Ceme­tery. Memo­ri­als pre­ferred to Mt. Olivet Care­view.
