Obituary

Vincent James Verruno

VINCENT JAMES VERRUNO, passed away peacefully on June 23, 2020 at the age of 102. Vincent was predeceased by his beloved wife of 58 years, Grace (Vivacqua), and he is survived by Grace’s brother Dr. Raymond Vivacqua and his wife Teresa, by his sister-in-law Veronica (Bonnie) Verruno and many adoring nieces and nephews. The oldest of five children of Nicola and Nicoletta (Tenaglia), Vincent also bid farewell to his siblings Michael (Marie, dec’d), Albert (Nel, dec’d), Armand (Bonnie), and Rita Cervone (Mario, dec’d). Vincent was lovingly known as “Murphy” and “Jimmy” since childhood. He joined the US Army in 1942, serving in communications until November 1945. Recognized with 5 Bronze Stars, he landed at Normandy on D-Day-Plus-3 and served in the Rhineland and Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge) Campaigns. Like his brother Albert, Vincent retired as a trusted chauffeur for City of Philadelphia officials, and demonstrated his outstanding driving skills until just months ago. He was a gracious and cheerful friend to many. Viewing 9:30 am and Funeral Mass 10:30 am on Saturday June 27, 2020 at St. Jerome’s Parish, 8100 Colfax St., Philadelphia, PA 19136.

Uncle Jimmy, my wife and I brought a prepared lunch one Sunday, and after arrived we had to run to a nearby store to buy drinks. Uncle Jimmy’s favorite was either Sprite or Coke. When we arrived back at his house to have lunch, he had set the table for us and said, “Let’s sit down; I set the table for pictures.”
