It is with deepest sadness, the family of “Vinnie” Vincent Thomas Gordon Vanstone announce his passing on May 14, 2017.
Vinnie is survived by his loving wife Shirley, his children Shelley Allen, Timmie (Diane) Vanstone, Penny Vanstone, Todd (Darlene) Vanstone and Tammy (Dwayne) Martell. Vinnie is also survived by his brother and sisters, Mabel (John) Trimble, Marion Vanstone, Curt Vanstone, Winnie Vanstone and Debbie (Brian) Vanstone. Vinnie was predeceased by his Mom and Dad Charlie and Flo Vanstone and Sister in law Carrol Vanstone. Vinnie is also survived by multitudes of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins; too many to list.
Vinnie was an amazing fishing partner to all. Goaltender Extraordinaire; Old Timer Hockey will never be the same without him. Vinnie went through so many eras of goaltending equipment – from no mask to the Patvin Special “The Man behind the Mask”. Vinnie was an amazing father, grandfather, uncle and friend. Vinnie was loved by everyone and so important to everyone who knew him. Vinnie loved hockey, golfing, cars, darts, baseball, crib, and fishing. All things manly.
In fishing, Vinnie was very stubborn about the metric system, which got Vinnie into trouble quite a few times. Anyone who had the pleasure to know Vinnie knew he was a man of many words. Vinnie loved and cherished all his family and friends and will be forever sadly missed by all.
We love you Vinnie, RIP.
A private family interment will be held. A Celebration of Life will take place on Tuesday May 23, 2017 at Shirley’s home – 121 Cowanville Rd, Newcastle, Ontario from 3:30 – 7:30.
