Vince Pugliese Sr. was born in Coniston, Ontario in 1928. Our husband, dad, papa and great-papa was many things, but first and foremost he was a family man. He took great pride in the life that he and his wife Joy built together. He is lovingly remembered by the love of his life, Joy; his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who will be sure to carry and share his many stories with them always.
Vince was a storyteller. If you knew him, he likely had a story about you and certainly one for you. Vince remembered everyone he ever met it seemed, and he would happily share his experiences and opinions with you; often with a wonderful laugh and unexpected punch line.
Vince was a teacher. He could build or fix anything; and he always did. He was always interested in knowing how things worked and how he might make them work better. An electrician, a plumber, a carpenter, a butcher, a mechanic; the list is long if you wanted to describe his interests.
As long as that list is, he was our husband, our dad, our papa and great-papa, and he will be missed - but with a smile.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Maison McCulloch Hospice would be appreciated.
