Obituary

Vincent F. Yezzi, Age 82, formerly of Huntingdon Valley, PA, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 14, 2017. Beloved husband of 57 years of Joan (nee Sands). Loving father of Mary Beth Phillips (Jack), Vincent Yezzi Jr. (Laura), Thomas Yezzi (Meg), and Linda Schubert (Tom). Devoted grandfather of Kevin (Kelly), Brian (Colleen), Amy (fiancé Bob), and Brendan Phillips; Steven, Colleen, Scott, Kristen and Amanda Yezzi; and Brian, Patrick and Matthew Schubert. Dear brother of Kathleen York and Eileen (Nick) DePalma.

A proud graduate of St. Joe's Prep '52 and Saint Joseph's University '56, Vince was a loyal Hawk fan, and his life was enriched by life-long friendships with classmates. Vince had a distinguished career at IBM for over 40 years, receiving many accolades and awards for his professionalism and achievements. He mentored and had a positive impact on so many people throughout his career. A man of strong Catholic faith, he was an active parishioner at St. Albert the Great Church. He served through his work on the Finance and Home & School Committees, and as a CCD teacher, Eucharistic Minister, and lector. Vince was an avid golfer, gardener, and Philly sports fan. As a WRDV disc jockey for over 10 years, Vince brought happiness to countless radio listeners through his program "Big Band Serenade and More." He treasured time spent with his family and enjoyed taking photos capturing all the good times spent together. He loved building sandcastles in Ocean City, and his youthful spirit and positive energy kept him involved in all of his grandchildren's activities.
