Vincent Campbell Messing, age 65, of Long Beach, California, concluded his earthly journey and joined his Lord and Savior on November 25th, 2013. Vince was born in the Bronx, New York on October 12, 1948, and at age three, moved to California.

Vince built a successful career in the real estate industry and became a legend in his field in the Long Beach area. "Time Tested Reliability You Can Count On" was Vince's slogan, and for over thirty years, he practiced real estate with honesty and integrity. But real estate did not define Vince Messing. Real estate became the vehicle for Vince to connect with the Long Beach community. Vince was a volunteer and an active supporter in Project Shepherd, Habitat for Humanity, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, Northern Lights Children's Care, and enjoyed dressing up as Santa for the annual Christmas dinner at St. Mary's Care Clinic.

Vince Messing was a devoted husband to Andrea, and a loving father to his son Aaron, Aaron's fiancé Lauren, and daughter Adrienne. He welcomed stepchildren, Chad and Cami to his family and was blessed with seven grandchildren, Joe, Ella, Carly, Riley, Connor, Alexa, and Brooke.

Vince enjoyed hosting barbecues and pool parties for family and friends, reading scripture, tending to his vegetable garden, traveling, playing classical guitar, fishing,and golf.

"Never less than magnificent," was Vince's response when he was asked "How are you doing today?" When paired with his warm handshake and honest blue eyes, it was hard for anyone to ever disagree.

Vince's spiritual journey lead him to the Cornerstone Church where he sang in the church choir and became a prayer warrior in the men's ministry known as the "Band of Brothers." Vince's favorite bible verse was Psalm 23. It concludes, "Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

To celebrate the life of Vince Messing, a memorial service will be held at Cornerstone Church, 1000 N Studebaker Rd, Long Beach, CA 90815 on December 9th at 11:00 AM. Please sign the guestbook at www.luyben familyd-m.com
