Vince was known for his infectious smile and welcoming bear hugs. He loved all things outdoors and particularly enjoyed canoe trips in Algonquin Park, the years spent living in the mountains of BC, and time at their retreat on Hughes Lake with his loving wife Jen. Over the years their dogs Riley, Molly, and Boo were always a part of his outdoor adventures. Vince and Jen also enjoyed their travels to the south, with Belize being a favourite destination. Vince was a talented wood craftsman who’s creative skills lead to such projects as his infamous 6ft tall praying mantis. Vince was an active member of his community who always sought opportunities to be involved. Time with family at special dinners, cook outs and reunions were always important to him. Vince loved, was loved, and will be missed.
