Vincent Amadeo, age 75, of East Brunswick, passed away Monday, January 21, 2019 in his home.
Mr. Amadeo was born in Brooklyn, NY and resided in East Brunswick.
He will be greatly missed by his devoted wife of 52 years, Kathleen Amadeo; his two adoring sons; Vincent and his wife, Jenna Amadeo and Brian and his wife, Janine Amadeo; his loving sister Camille and her husband Werner Tuppatsch; his daughter Dawn; and 7 grandchildren: Vincent, Luciana, Joseph, Nicholas, Marianne, Katie and Theresa.
Vinnie was raised in Brooklyn, NY and later lived on Staten Island and in St. Louis, Missouri before moving back to NJ upon retirement. He proudly worked as a VP for the May Company.
Vinnie loved beach days, Italian food, a relaxing glass of wine and spending time in NYC. He loved to travel, especially to Aruba. He had a green thumb. He had a passion for sports and his favorite teams were the Brooklyn Dodgers, NY Yankees and, of course, the New York Giants! He was a devoted Catholic and quietly did kind things for others. He always wore a baseball hat and a smile.
Vinnie truly enjoyed time spent with his family and friends. He never missed the opportunity to attend a sporting event or performance or ceremony for his kids, grandkids or his many dear nieces and nephews. He had a calming way about him and made everyone happy simply by being himself. This Pop Pop was just an extra special guy and his kind heart and gentle way will be missed by all who knew him.
