Vince was a CPA with Price Waterhouse and a Financial Executive with Publicker Industries and Rollins Corporation. He was a member of the American Institute of Public Accountants and served as Past President of the Pennsylvania Chapter. He was very active at St Anthony's Church in Ambler and Lower Gwynedd Little League in the 1970's and 80's. He was a volunteer at Brittany Pointe Estates, his beloved home for 16 years. He loved the Philadelphia Eagles and was happy to see them win a Super Bowl. He enjoyed golf and tennis and also loved fishing while with his family in Brigantine, NJ.

Vince Was my tennis partner in the mid 1970s in Ambler, Pa. - he flew P 51 Mustangs in WWII over 100+ missions - I called him the Mustang man. A CPA and CFO with prominent corporations. At Brittany Farms he played duplicate bridge, ran the Bingo and help keep the books. A few years ago I saw his name engraved on a tombstone in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery - he was always planning ahead. What a lovely man - a female friend once told me "Vince is a keeper" - he was also a jewel of a friend. TOM SMITH

Vince was a prince of a man. I worked with him for more than 10 years observing how he went about his daily activities and responsibilities. Vince possessed formidable professional skills with the highest level of integrity and honesty. Vince was a humble man except in regard to his family. Then he would glow with pride when talking about his wife, children and grandchildren.
I'm writing this on Veterans' Day and I want to acknowledge with gratitude his service to our country during World War II. It was a privilege to have known and worked with Vince. May you rest in peace. Patrick Bagley
