Chère Jeanette, Je t’offre toutes mes sympathies. Je suis désolée de ne pas avoir pu assister aux funérailles de ton père, car je suis à l’extérieur du pays. Je garde un merveilleux souvenir de lui, toujours si généreux et souriant. Il se dévouait tellement à la famille et à toutes les causes qu’il défendait. Le monde est meilleur à cause de sa bonté exemplaire. Mes condoléances les plus sincères. Ta cousine Liliane

I knew Fred from the old SteelWorkers Hall. Fred would make a point to stop by my office in to say hello & chat he will be missed

Sincere condolences to the Vincent family and friends. Fred was a gentleman and true fighter for justice He helped countless veterans and their families to obtain benefits and compensation. He was also a true Unionist and ably served the members of Local 6500 USW, as well as many others. He leaves a rich legacy of service above self, devotion and compassion. A good man, indeed.

Many, many years ago when I was employed by USWA Local 6500, I would see Mr. Vincent often at the Steel Hall in his capacity as a Steward. He treated all of the female staff with kindness and respect. Fred was a true gentleman.
