  1. I’ve just learned of Vince’s passing. Vince and I graduated together from USC back in 1987. Although I did not know him long but I knew him to be a great friend. I remember driving around Pueblo in his blue monster pickup truck with his equally monster stereo system. He made a special effort to introduce me to many of his old time friends. We’d hung out at the Green Light Tavern and the Bull Ring. The last time I say Vinny was graduation day and he and I went and had drinks at the brand new (at the time) Savoy on Union ave. I have thought about him often through out the years and I am saddened to hear of his loss. God Speed Vinny!

  2. To Vince’s entire Family,
    I worked with Vince at Astellas. I was always moved by Vince’s spirit and can-do attitude about business and more importantly, about life. He made a lasting impression on me and I will never forget him. May the happy memories you have of Vince help you through the tough times ahead. God Bless, David Lindquist

  3. I would like to express my condolences at this time to your family. The Bible is a great source of encouragement at times like this. A comforting thought is at Revelation 21:3,4, where it states “…And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry be anymore the former things have past away”. This scripture gives us hope for the future! You can also find comfort in Acts 24:15 – Death does not end it all. May Jehovah God bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time. (Ps.46:1, Ps.83:18)

  4. To the Pacheco Family, You have our deepest sympathy. Vince was a childhood friend to our family. Him and my brother Mike were the best of friends when we were younger. May he rest in Peace. The Baca Family on Ash Street.

  5. Teresa and Family,

    I am praying for you and your family to diminish the sadness in our hearts. Vince was a very special person. Yesterday’s standing room only celebration is a testament to the impact Vince had on people. He will be missed.

    Darleen Kroll (one of his many Pfizer friends)

My prayers to his family.

  15. We Remember Them At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them. At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them. At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them. At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them. At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them. At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them. As long as we live, they too will live; for they are now a part of us, as we remember them. When we are weary and in need of strength, We remember them. When we are lost and sick at heart, We remember them. When we have joys we yearn to share, We remember them. When we have decisions that are difficult to make, We remember them. When we have achievements that are based on theirs, We remember them. As long as we live, they too shall live, for they are a part of us, as we remember them. –

  16. Vince…the best of the best…the main drive behind “The Choirboys” basketball championship….Vince motivated us all a the half of the championship game by chanting “We are the Champions!!!”…YOU are the champion, Vince! You will be missed…I have tons of memories of our times together
