Vincent A. Civitano April 24, 1934 – June 20, 1990
Remembering and celebrating my father Vincent
Yesterday I lit a memorial candle on the anniversary for 30 years since he has past. In his memory I am sharing a few of my favorite photos of him.

I never knew my birthfather yet it’s the most interesting feeling, as the years have gone by, as I have continued to blog and study his photos, as stories have been shared, visits with my brothers, my Uncle, my Aunt when still with us, boundless conversations with my Uncle, wonderful cousin reunions, Vincent has become so real to me. As if we had walked hand in hand and shared those special moments fathers and daughters often have.

Yesterday, on the anniversary of his passing, my brother Frank brought 4 red roses to our fathers grave for me. He placed one in honor of myself, his only daughter, one for his only grandchild, my daughter Marissa, and one for his two great grandchildren, Torance and Liam.
Vincent is buried along with my brother Vincent at
