    I am saddened by my cousin Vincent’s passing. We were born the same year and I remember him fondly. Although we didn’t see each other for many years, as life takes people their separate ways, I recall playing punch ball and tag with him on Creston Avenue in the Bronx, when we visited our Farfone family. Aunt Betty, my beloved gradma Rose and Uncle Warren and Aunt Rita were the delights of all of our lives. Vincent and I would use the back wall of the Loews Paradise Theater for ball games. We also spent time together in Long Beach at Aunt Betty’s place on Pennsylvania Ave. and of course on that fabulous beach. For Bronx boys that was a great treat. Vincent was a real nice kid and a good cousin to me. I send my heartfelt condolences to his family. I hope that the shock of his sudden passing, passes quickly for you all, and that his memory carries on in all of you, and for generations to come. Louis Romano Sr.

  2. We were very sad to hear of Vince’s passing, Tom and I remember Vince fondly. As a child Tom remembers this dark haired kind American man who came into the Ronaldson family, with his mirrored sunglasses and big American car who always had time for him. We both remember his smile and the fun times we had as a family when the Farfone’s came over for a holiday.

    Although he moved away from the Ronaldson family later in life he was often spoken about with a smile and fond memories of earlier years

    He leaves a wonderful legacy with two wonderful children and beautiful grandchildren he will be missed.

    Rest in peace Vince
