Obituary for Vincent S. Pergolizzi

Vincent S.  Pergolizzi
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Vincent Salvatore Pergolizzi, our loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend to all lives he touched on September 12, 2020.

He left us in his sleep after losing a long and arduous 6 year battle with cancer. He was 80 years old.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, during wartime, Vincent and his older brother and younger sister were raised by their parents and taught strong Italian-Catholic values of hard work and putting your family first. Having lost his father at the young age of 11, Vincent quickly took on great responsibility to his mother and siblings and did everything he could to help them maintain a stable life.

Having been born during WWII and always having a strong love of country, he aspired to join the Navy at age 17 but his fearful mother refused to allow him. When he became of age to join the military without parental consent, he chose to enlist in the Army. He was a member of the 82nd airborne division for just two short years before being honorably discharged after a jump injury.

He met the love of his life, Joanne, nearly 40 years ago and shared a beautiful 36 year marriage. The were blessed with their daughter Christina and now bubbly and vivacious granddaughter Julianna Theresa who is 17 months old.

He was also a wonderful son and brother, a respected godfather, a treasured uncle and cousin, and a cherished friend to so many.

Vincent is predeceased by his parents Vincent and Theresa, brother Anthony and sister Prudence.

Vincent lived a full life and worked hard as an entrepreneur to provide for his family. He loved cats more than anything and anyone who knew him would swear he was part feline himself. He enjoyed spending time with friends and you could usually find him with a glass of Chivas Regal in his hand and either playing backgammon or watching the NY Yankees playing a great game of baseball.

Most of all he loved his family and instilled in them strong values of hard work, kindness to everyone, and always giving your best efforts to everything you do. He will be missed dearly and forever in our hearts.

Visitation will take place on Monday, September 14th at Labella Funeral Home located at 2625 Harway Avenue in Brooklyn, NY from 2-9pm

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center or Visiting Nurse Service of NY Hospice and Palliative Care.

The family would also like to thank Dr. Motzer, Nurse Pauline and all of the MSKCC staff who took amazing care of him.
