He was given an Outstanding Service award by the V.A. for painting a mural in the Chapel of the Batavia VA Hospital. The Landmark Society of Genesee County gave him a certificate of Recognition for the many murals he painted. Vin worked as a part time art and substitute teacher in area schools and painted houses during the summer months to support his love for art. Vin was a talented artist. He saw the beauty in God’s creation. With his paints and brushes, he tried to capture that beauty on canvas or the side of a building, whether it was a portrait of someone’s loved one, a family pet or the ever changing scenes of nature. He created true works of art to be admired for years to come. Vin played hockey in his younger years in the Batavia Men’s League and was an avid Buffalo Bills fan.
