Vincent Salzone, 92, a resident of Cape Coral, formerly of Wayne, NJ, passed away Thursday, August 6, 2020 in Cape Coral, FL. He was born October 2, 1927 in Villa San Giovanni, Italy to Antonio and Vincenza Salzone, now deceased.

Vincent was a member of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Lyndhurst, NJ. He was born in Italy and served in the Italian Air Force before coming to the United Stated in September of 1950. He lived in Brooklyn NY where he met his wife Marian before moving to Lyndhurst NJ to raise their 3 sons. Vincent worked as a Machinist at Western electric until retirement. After retirement he found new interest in the stock market and trading became a passion of his. He and his wife Marian loved traveling the world, seeing new places, spending time with family in Italy and taking cruises to places such as Alaska and the Panama Canal. Vincent was a member of the Italian-American Club and he loved watching soccer and the NY Mets play.

    Saddened to hear the news of my beloved Uncle Vinny-he and Aunt Marian were a big part of my families life growing and we often spent the holidays together which are always great memories. He was a great man-i can still hear his voice calling us kids to the dinner table! Condolences to my cousins and their families. With Love, Richard

    As a young child, I remember the card games my aunts and uncles would play; how colorful they can become. They still bring a smile to my face as I reflect upon them. Unfortunately, we lost another special person in our family. Uncle Vinny – you may have left us, but I still see your face and hear your voice. May you rest in peace.

    As a child, I thought it was neat that Uncle Vinny still had an Italian accent. He was always welcoming when we would visit him and Aunt Marion at their home in NJ. Great meals, fun times in the pool and fun playing cards with my cousins (Vincent and Michael). As an adult, Uncle Vinny liked to discuss my work connection to PSE&G, since, I believe, it was one of the stocks he was invested in. He was a special Uncle that will be missed. Love to his family.
