Vince was born on January 4, 1943 in Poland. After WW2, Vince, along with his mother Sophia, grandmother and older sisters Helen and Kristine immigrated to Canada where his father had previously immigrated. Vince married Patty on June 19, 1976 and was a devoted husband for 43 years. He was very civic minded as shown by his membership with the Jaycees of Kitchener, Hamilton and then London.

He was affiliated with the London and St. Thomas Real Estate Board, holding many positions within the board, including director from 1991-1994 and president in 1997. He was well respected in his profession and loved to catch up with his real estate buddies following his retirement in 2012. Vince loved any and all sports but especially loved football and travelling the world with his wife Patty. Vince and Patty spent several winters in Florida where Vince enjoyed golfing and socializing. Vince was also able to travel back to his country of birth, Poland several times and enjoyed visiting many family members who still reside there. Vince was also a fantastic cook, and was well known for his rib recipes among countless others. Vince was a dedicated member of St. Justin's Parish in London and was a 4th Degree Knight within the Knights of Columbus, Council 8339 as well as an active member of the Optimist Club for many years.
