It is with extreme sadness that I inform you of the passing of our State Deputy, Vinnie Tavormina. Vinnie was called home by our Lord just before midnight on January 26, 2021. His battle with COVID-19 was fought valiantly and bravely over these last two weeks. Please keep Vinnie, Tamara, and his family in your prayers as they work through this difficult time of loss.
The family will hold a private funeral service to be followed by a memorial and celebration of his life later in the coming months. Notifications will be sent when arrangements have been made.
Vinnie was a true patriot of America having served in the Pershing Rifles and United States Army Reserves. He was unashamedly a pro-life Catholic whose faith was very important to him. His dedication to the Knights of Columbus was very evident in his words and actions from the time he joined our Order in 1996. Although his time as our State Deputy was tragically cut short, his impact and leadership will be felt for some time to come. His death has left a void that we will be hard-pressed to fill. We pray that he is now in Paradise with his Lord and Savior.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to Life Choices Resource Center, 503 Main Street Metuchen, NJ 08840 in Vinnie's memory would be appreciated.
