Memories and Condolences

I just recently heard of Vince's death. We had talked on the telephone just before he passed away so I knew the health battle he was fighting.
I was a PECO friend of Vince and we worked together for many years at PECO. Even after retirement he and I worked Nuclear Fueling Outages as Safety Managers.
He was a warm, trusted friend, confidant and co-worker.
He has earned his final reward and I offer my humble condolences.

There are people in our lives whose paths we cross for only snippets of time, and of these only a few who leave us with lasting impressions.... and “Poppy” was surely one such soul for my family.

As our steady companion in the bleachers at Susquehanna swim meets, his company reflected much of the man to those of us around him. He had the genteel presence of an elder statesmen; the courtly gentleman who had well navigated the vagaries of life. His ease of conversation bespoke of a life engaged with people, and rich in friendships... and his tenacity in attending his grandson’s meets made clear his love and devotion to family.

Now, in that corner of our lives dedicated to long hours of hard bench seats and chlorine-filled air...there’s an empty seat. And Poppy will be remembered... and missed.

Deepest sympathies from the Groves to the Sullivans.

Chrissie, Vinny and Andrew,
I am so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful man ! I always remember his smiling face,his kindness and generosity.You are all in my thoughts.
Love and prayers

Uncle Vince always had a smile on his face, in his eyes and in his heart.
I met Uncle Vince on Halloween when two older teenagers dressed as hobos knocked on our door on Algon Avenue. I thought, (as a 12 yr old know it all), they were kind of big to be trick or treating, but they were smiling & giggling so what the heck? I didn't recognize them, but when Joanie said trick or treat, I recognized her voice, but not him. It turned out this was to become our Uncle Vince. A smiling tall guy, who liked to have fun... & has a knack for getting people to smile too. This is my earliest memory of Uncle Vince. Amazing man who will be missed. When I think of Vince, I smile, he showed me that.

Many good times with Vince at Oregon shops before he went to Safety Department. My thoughts and prayers to his family.

I worked with Vince for many years at Peco what a great guy. I will miss his smiling face and his funny stories.
Rest in peace my friend you will be missed by all who knew you.
