Jean, Carmen, Joey and Linda and all the Catania family. We are so very sorry for your loss. My mother and I used to visit Vinnie at Evergreen quite frequently before Covid. I know he appreciated our visits talking about “the old days”. Rest In Peace Vinnie.
Love Sadie LaRussa and Sandy Morin.

Gloria and Family

Vinny was a special person, lifelong friend, and a great guy. He had an infectious laugh and terrific smile. God bless the Catania family and know that Vinny has joined his family and friends who are angels watching over all of us. Viicki

I have known Vinny for many years. We have shared many good times together with his cousins Joe and Ron Rinaldi. He worked for us at the 190 East Lounge and was a key employee . He will be missed by many but never forgotten. RIP Vinny !

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the entire family. Vinnie was more than just a friend he was a coworker he was a mentor and in most cases when I got in trouble he was a big brother one of the famous lines he always said if you’re gonna pick on him you’re gonna have to pick on somebody smaller first! Rest In Peace Vinnie.
