Early in the morning on June 20, 2022, dad departed for the eternal hunting and fishing grounds where the season is open year round and you don't need a license. Dad always said early morning was the best time to hunt and fish.

Predeceased by his brother Wilf and parents Mike and Sophie, Vince is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Emelia, son Terry (Kate) and daughter Melody (Michael), grandchildren Ryan (Gabby), Meghan (Cory), Mackenzie (Jonathan) and Kelsey (Chris), great-grandchildren Stella, Jack and Lyon and brothers Rudy and Len.

Dad's health had declined over the last few years and he really missed being in the great outdoors. He is now sitting round a campfire with all his old hunting and fishing buddies replaying the many outdoor adventures from the big ones that got away to the half mile deer he shot.

Dad loved his family dearly. In the last while mom and dad talked about their many adventures together around the world from the beaches of Bermuda to sleeping in an Army tent at 40 below while ice fishing. Dad was so proud of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

As per dad's wishes, there will be no funeral service.

Dad, free of pain and suffering, rest in peace.

  1. Emelia & Family,
    You have our heartfelt condolences. We hope this poem will help to comfort you at this sad time.
    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.
    Those we love remain with us
    For love itself lives on,
    And cherished memories never fade
    Because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be
    More than a thought apart,
    For as long as there is memory,
    They’ll live on in the heart.
    Julius & Vera Lazarenko & Family

  2. Our heartfelt condolences to Emelia and the entire family. Lots of great memories of Vince and family over the last 30 years in our neighbourhood.
    Love, hugs and prayers, from your favourite neighbours to the south, Tony, Susan, Jordana and Taylor Perri

      Mom and Dad were blessed by the most amazing and caring neighbours …….the Perri Family
      I can only begin to imagine how many yards of snow were shovelled over the last few years and how many battery boosts were done.
      THANK YOU seems like it just is not enough for all the help you provided to them and I know they were so thankful for everything
      The world would be a much better place if there were more Perri Families
      We are planning to hold a small memorial in early September to coincide with Dad’s favourite time of year……..the opening of hunting season
      Take care and God Bless you all
