Obituary

Vincent J. “Jimmy” Vaccaro Sr. It is with great sadness that the family of Vincent Vaccaro Sr. announces his passing on November 2 of natural causes at age 94. Vincent passed peacefully at his home in Bradenton, Fla.

Born and raised in Trenton NJ, Vince was the only son of Carmela (Scozzaro) and Antonio Vaccaro. At age 18, he joined the Navy and fought in WWII. As a reservist, at age 24, he was called back in to service to fight in the Korean War. Upon returning home, Vince earned his GED and on the GI Bill attended and graduated from Rider College. He furthered his studies at Rutgers University where he received a Masters Degree in Education.

Vince started his career as an Elementary School Teacher in the Trenton Public School System, and after several years was appointed Principal of Cook School. Vince then moved to the Hamilton Township School System where he was Principal of Greenwood and Farmingdale Schools, and finished his career as Principal of Mercerville Elementary School. Vince also learned to be a Barber from his father Antonio, and continued to work as a Barber into his early 60’s.

Vince was an active member of the community and belonged to several organizations including the Fermi Federation, the Bordentown Elks, the Italian American Sportsman’s Club, and the Baron AA. Vince will be remembered for his sense of patriotism, optimistic outlook, and service to others. He was a friend to many and a devoted family man.

Vince and his wife Anna Ruth (Hensley) resided in Hamilton where they raised their 3 children. He is survived by his son Anthony and wife Kathy of Bradenton, Fla., his son Vince Jr. and wife Tresse of Atlantic Highlands, NJ, and son-in-law George Kish of Las Vegas, NV. Vince is also survived by his 3 grandchildren Matthew Kish and wife Cassandra, Nicholas Vaccaro, and Olivia Vaccaro. He was predeceased by his parents Carmela & Antonio, his wife Ruth, and his daughter Joanne.
