Vinny graduated from the former Commerce High School. He retired from Pratt Whitney Corporation after many years working in the aircraft electronics industry. He was a US Army veteran of the Korean War serving as Corporal and a radio operator. He continued his service in the Army Reserve afterwards. He was a member of the former St. Casimir’s Parish and more recently St. Brigid’s Church in Millbury. He was an active member with the Lithuanian Charitable Society of Maironis Park, a Board of Director and Sargent of Arms with the Lithuanian Socialization Club, the Greendale Retired Men’s Club, and the Charles F. Minney Post 3329 in Millbury. Of his many interests, his full-time hobby was devoted to his wife Zina and his family. Vinny was a kindhearted and faithful man who always had a smile or story to offer and a hand to help.
Vinny was the happiest the day he married and the days his children and grandchildren were born. He treasured the precious moments he and his sons and grandsons spent together. They loved getting together on the golf course, going deep sea fishing, and their trip to Las Vegas. His granddaughters made his life complete and his wife so blessed. He was a devoted Catholic and always thanked the Lord for all his blessings.
From Zina, “To the man I loved and lost. Vinny my love, with tears in my eyes and aching heart, I am professing my love for you one last time until we meet again. You may be gone but never forgotten because you will live forever in my aching heart and memories of the wonderful love we shared through the years. Honey, you were the apple of my eye, you treated me like I was special. You made me feel like a queen not for just a day but every single day of our life together. You were the most thoughtful, caring and loving person that the Lord has put on this earth. Your family always came first, and you shared all that you had with them. You were loved and respected by one and all, and that love was very special to us all. You and I would say to each other, “I love you to the moon and back.” I would respond with, “don’t forget to come back, because I need you more.” Vinny, my love, you may not be able to come back to me this time. I will be passing by that moon some day and we will be together again. I will miss your hugs and kisses which you never forgot to plant on me. May you rest in peace sweetheart, until we are reunited again. I thank the Lord every day for allowing us to find each other and letting us share a wonderful life. Love, your wife, Zina A.K.A. your Bride, as you always introduced me to others.”
Our family wishes to thank Dr. Richard Palken for the wonderful care he gave Vinny throughout the years, and for prolonging his life to a ripe old age.
