Vince’s life began May 18, 1938, in Watervliet, Michigan. He grew up in Watervliet, where he graduated high school and was a lifetime area resident. After high school Vince proudly served in the United States Navy, and upon returning home Vince went to work for Alden White and Sons for many years.

He helped his neighbors when they needed him. He was dedicated to his lifelong friends. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him.
Above everything Vince loved his family which includes: two children, Jason Pratt and Leslie (David) Scogin; four grandchildren Benjamin, Lily, Joy, and Finneas; and his sister Linda (Jack) Lacey.
