“Vince was a great dancer, a good pool shooter, loved to play the guitar and sing,“ said Bill Cleary, a longtime friend.
“His Mom and Dad, Mary and Al DiGiacomo, along with his brother Aldi, and sister Helene were all musically incline. If you ever had the privilege of being invited to their house for a party it was great time. Mr. DiGiacomo would play the ukulele and Vince would play the guitar. Mrs. DiGiacomo would get everyone singing and in between play the comb. Great times. Great memories,” said Cleary.
