  1. My earliest memories of Uncle Vince are when he was in the Army, serving in Germany during the early 1950s. He took moving pictures of the events that he saw and sent the film back to us to view. After his hitch in the Army, he returned to the family home on Eggleston Avenue in Chicago. He studied philosophy at DePaul University. Whenever my folks took me to visit my grandparents, I went up to his room and interrupted his studies. He always took time to talk with me. I used to listen to him on Channel 11 WTTW, the public broadcasting station in Chicago. While he was at DePaul U he made announcements on that station. His hearty laugh was contagious.

    My sympathy and prayers to all the members of his immediate family.
