  Vincent R King
  
  It is with great sadness that we share the news of the death of our father, Vincent R. King who passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family on December 6, 2018 at the age of 93.
 
Vincent was born in New York, New York on January 28, 1925 to Joseph and Grace (Reeber) King.  He was loved by his siblings John, Joseph (Sonny), Edward and Agnes (Knoop) who have passed before him.  He is survived by his loving sister Francis (King) Merritt.
 
Vincent grew up in the Bronx and at 18 years old, Vincent served as a Medic with the 82nd Airborne Division of United States Army during World War II.  This profound experience shaped many of his defining values:  Dedication to God and country, commitment to service and gratitude for life that he prayed for and practiced at even the most adverse times of his life.
 
Upon returning to New York after the War, he began working for the New York Daily News where he remained a dedicated employee for over 45 years.   A few short years later, he married Catherine Collins (deceased) on June 10, 1950. He and Catherine were the loving parents of nine children: Arlene, Cathy (deceased), Vinny, Michael, Patty, Tom, James, Maria and Jeanette.  Over the years, he warmly welcomed his sons and daughters in law: Richie, Nick, Jude, Mariam, John and Gus into the family fold. He was the beloved grandfather (“Poppi”) of Jennifer, Christina, Richard, Leah, Christopher, Madeline, Grace, Nicholas, Michelle, Michael, Christopher, Catherine, Maria, Sean, Alex, Elliot and Andrew; and Great Grandfather of Matthew, Thomas, Owen, Maya, Miles and Maggie.  He was the beloved Uncle of many nieces and nephews who always looked forward to spending time with him.
 
Family was the center of his life and he was
the center of ours. We will miss him dearly.
