In 1958 Vinny moved to the United States with his family. He served in the US Navy from 1964-1968 on the USS Lexington as an aircraft mechanic.

Vinny was happiest when working in his garden while listening to Italian music. He loved to cook and leave the mess for everyone else to clean up. He had a passion for aeronautics and obtained a private pilot single engine aircraft license. He enjoyed making people laugh, always had a smile on his face, and had an infectious personality that everyone loved. He was generous to those he cared about and had a lasting impact on many lives. Vinny will be greatly missed.


A private service for family will be held in Henderson, NV. He will be laid to rest at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City, NV. A Celebration of Life will be announced in the future.

    I have worked at the York Mall and enjoyed many lunches from Lucas Pizza, even climbing into the tiny bathroom there!

  • To my uncle Vinny. We will miss you so much.
    I can say that as kids I remember my father saying hey wanna go see Uncle Vinny and the family?
    We would get so excited. knowing we were going to have a great time.

    Remembering the times we had when we would come & visit with the entire family at the home or at the Pizzeria having a slice of pizza together and you always had a story to tell that still to today I remember.

    Thank you for the good times and the advice you would share. If we could only go back and share those same times together again. Miss you already and forever

    My Earliest memory in life is of my Uncle Vinny. I was 5 years old and I can still see him in his white navy uniform. He always had a smile on his face and always made me laugh. I was so surprised when he created his Facebook page. I looked forward to all the funny cartoons and videos he would send. I miss him. God Bless

    I didn’t get to meet Uncle Vinny until 20 years of being married to a Caro but years didn’t mean anything. It was as if he was my own uncle from the minute we met. There were no shortage of words as we both loved the subject of “Anything”. His sweetest messages with emojis were precious. I wish there had been more times buy I’ll treasure the ones that were.
