Vincent A. Princiotta, age 39, died heroically responding to the call of duty at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Vinny was with Ladder Co. 7 on East 29th St., NYC for 16 years. He was known to all his brothers in the firehouse as a "Happy-Go-Lucky-Guy". It was a job he loved with all his heart.
He was a man who enjoyed life to the fullest. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed many outdoor sports, including surfing, skiing and snowboarding. We will miss his sense of humor and adventurous spirit. He touched the lives of all who knew him.
He was the beloved husband of Karen; loving father of Christina, 16 months; devoted son of Anita and the late Vincent; loving brother of Michele and Bernadette. He will be greatly missed by his aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends.
A Memorial mass will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2001 11:00am at St. Catherine's Church, Blauvelt, NY.
