Born on Dec 1, 1928, Vince became a Lion in 1960 with the Vancouver South Lions and raised and supported that community for years. In 1992 he was awarded a Melvin Jones fellow award that he was proud to receive.
He was one of the founders of the Christmas tree lot as we used to sell trees at the old garage on Main Street before the site moved the the current location on the corner of 41st and Fraser.
After the family moved to Richmond Vince and his son Dale joined the Richmond Lions club where he served to the end.
Vince and his enthusiasm for being a Lion will be sorely missed.
