  1. Vince was a good man and when I had my 1st child just 9 months ago at 53 he shared some kinds words. ‘The love of your son is an emotional gear beyond what we as human beings can even conceptualize.’ I am sad to learn of his passing. Rest in Peace Vince, praise Jesus when you meet.

  2. John and I both are so saddened to learn of Vince’s death. Vince was my golf coach, and a more patient and understanding coach could not be found. Vince found ways to get me to think about golf, and when it finally clicked and I got that perfect shot, he and I just hugged and LAUGHED!! I’ll always remember that moment. He was always kind and always found the time to give me a hug when I came up to the club, and I will truly miss that, even though he left before we did. Vince, you gave me my swing; thank you. You will be missed and treasured by John and me. Rest in Peace, our friend; Rest in Peace.

  3. May God’s promise at John 5:28,29 of a future resurrection bring you comfort. Until that time comes, he assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he understands your pain and grief and is eager to help you by giving you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)

    The Bible tells us more about the resurrection and what life will be like for us on earth when it takes place. God promises no more death, suffering of any kind, or wickedness. (Revelation 21:3,4; Psalm 37:10,11,29) To be able to live as God originally purposed and to welcome back our loved ones to perfect health and conditions forever, is such a comforting promise! If you’d like to discuss more, feel free to contact me.

    My deepest condolences,

  4. Please accept our sincere sympathy. We pray that our Heavenly Father grant you strength I your time of sorrow and his promises comfort you in the days ahead. Revelation 21:3,4 John 5:28,29

  5. Vince was truly a great guy and consummate golf professional. When my friend and I first joined RHCC Vince went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and happy and indeed was my only employee/friend there. We often shared cancer stories and he was always there to help with my swing particulars. Although he was treated terribly by the RHCC members and staff he never complained and just kept doing his job. My only positive memory of my time at Rolling Hills. Thanks Vince. I hope you are teeing off this morning.
