Vince served in the British army in World War II and as a sergeant during the Battle of Anzio in Italy. He then returned to England to become a bricklayer and to operate a pub. Vince came to the United States in 1964, a decision made for him after he helped intervene in a terrorist plan to sabotage a military base. He eventually moved to Florida, where he built a business in masonry and volunteered with the Grant Volunteer Fire Department, Grant Community Center, Brevard voting stations, the Brevard Sheriff's Office, and Citizens Observer Patrol, and achieved the title of "pilgrim" in the Loyal Order of the Moose.

Vince is survived by his wife Geraline; his sister Rose; his step-children Tonie, Brenda, and Jeff; many grandchildren; and friends and relatives both in the USA and in England, who love and will greatly miss him.
