Vinny enjoyed cooking, playing video games, anime, music, holistic medicine, and spending time with his family. He was known as the ultimate adventurer and could be found walking the streets of Fort Worth (or Mexico) in true nomad style, with a pair of headphones and a backpack. As a certified Pokémon trainer, Vinny sought out many battles throughout the city, capturing many a Pokémon. He was a jack-of-all-trades and some of his crafts included sandwich artist, music connoisseur, pop-culture guru, professional gamer, breakfast maker, sound engineer, and abstract painter. Vinny also loved working with his hands and was well-known for giving fabulous back massages.
He defied the status quo through his bold and unique sense of style ranging from vampire goth to emo rock star to fur coats and Elmer Fudd hats.
Vinny’s mischievous grin and loud chuckle could light up an entire room. As a renowned philosopher and generally pensive person, his personal motto was, “Why am I here”? Vinny knew no strangers and found a friend in everyone.
He was surrounded by his fellow stargazers upon his return to the galaxy.
This is not goodbye.
Vinman, May the Force Be with You.
