Son of the late Anthony Angelo and Francesca "Frances" Perricone Angelo, he was born on Aug. 21, 1938, in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Vincent was a corrections officer with the New York City Department of Corrections in Manhattan. He was a self-taught skilled handyman who enjoyed repairs around the house. Vinny was also a collector of many things and loved the thrill of the hunt. But what Vincent enjoyed the most was spending time with his family around the table telling stories for hours. He was a devoted father and grandfather.
