Vincent A. De Chiara (Vinnie), age 88, formerly of Bayonne and Sayreville, NJ, passed away in Spring Hill, FL, surrounded by his loving family. Born and raised in Bayonne, he had lived in Sayreville for 25 years, before retiring to Florida in 1993. Before his retirement, Vinnie worked as a brewer for over 26 years with Anheuser-Busch in Newark, NJ. Prior to that, he worked in accounting as a civilian employee at the US Naval Base in Bayonne for several years. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 2061 in Sayreville, NJ, as well as the Knights of Columbus Council 11317 in Spring Hill, FL. Vinnie was a member of the NJ Club and Senior Friends in Spring Hill, FL. He was also a communicant of St. Bernadette’s RC Church in Parlin, NJ, and St Joan Of Arc RC Catholic Church in Spring Hill. In 1999 Vinnie and his wife Ginger also took up part-time residency in their 2nd home in South Amboy, NJ, to be close to their children and grandchildren.

Vinnie has always been a man of many talents. In high school, not only was he a winning sprinter on the track, but also a shining star as the lead in the musicals. He was an avid sports fan, specifically of the NY Giants, Buccaneers, Mets, Rays, Devils and Lightning. He shared his love for music and the arts with his wife, Ginger, as the two commonly danced the night away and were admiringly referred to as “Fred and Ginger.” He taught his sons to crab, and passed along his passion to his son, Robert. In his 55 years of marriage, he and his wife shared countless memories together, but most fondly enjoyed traveling and being with family. He had a knack for finance, and was brilliant with math and numbers. His lifelong thirst for knowledge continued with his first laptop computer at age 84. Above all, Vinnie had a way with storytelling – a captivating ability to draw in any listener with his wit, warm personality, laugh, sparkle in his eye, and pure joy for life. He was a family man in every sense, and beloved by all who encountered him.

Vinnie is predeceased by his parents Vincent J. and Angelina, his sisters Terri Bucci and Roseanne Gomez, and his beloved son Robert.

Surviving are his loving wife of 55 years, the former Virginia “Ginger” Grieco, his beloved children Vincent, Gina Agnone and her husband Steve, and his cherished granddaughters Andrea and Jenna Agnone.

All services are private due to the COVID-19 federal restrictions on public gatherings, under the direction of the Carmen F. Spezzi Funeral Home 15 Cherry Lane Parlin, N.J.

The family hopes to have a memorial service in the future to honor Vinnie's life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Vincent’s name to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, PO Box 1893, Memphis, TN 38101-9950.
