I am so saddened to hear of Vinny's passing. He was a bright young man with a great future. I am a member of Temple University's Accounting program and Vinny contacted me to ask if I had time to discuss career options. Our conversations were very enlightening and I felt I received as much as I hoped he did. My prayers to his family.

Vinny was a great friend who would call you out of the blue to meet up and you would just pick right back up where you left off. He was a friend for life and there aren't many like that. One of a kind and gone way too soon, I'll miss you forever Vinny.

Vinny was a personal friend of mine for a very short time. We worked together at Temple during summer 2015 and very quickly considered him one of my closest friends. We used to get into so much trouble at work for talking too much. Vinny was funny, kind, and had such good music taste. Sometimes we would talk too much after work that our office would shut down or we'd stand near my car talking til dusk. One of my biggest regrets as I left that job was how quickly we lost touch. we tried here and there to grab lunch but as people do, we lost touch. Vinny, I've missed you for the last seven years and I'm devastated by your loss. My prayers are with your family and friends. may his memory be a blessing
