Fill not your hearts with pain
and sorrow, but remember me in
every tomorrow. Remember the joy,
the laughter, the smiles, I've only gone
to rest for a little while. Although my
leaving causes pain and grief, my going
has eased my hurt and given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because, I will remember you
all and look on with a smile.
Understand, in your hearts,
I've only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of
each of you, I can live my life
in the hearts of all of you.

Beloved father of Travis (Christina) Passavia. Cherished grandfather of Isabella Passavia.

Loving brother of Robert (Donna) Passavia and Gary (Cindy) Passavia.

People can go for years without seeing each other and in a moment it's like it was only yesterday. My heart is filled with good memories of years past yet aches today for Travis, Gary, Robert and all of Vinnys loved ones. Vinny, I don't ever recall seeing you without a smile on your face and laughter in your voice ~ Rest In Peace my friend. Rest In Peace 🙏🏻

Vinnie was a great friend . We had some fun times taking road trips around LI. I used to enjoy listening to him sing and play “I’m Your Captain” with the band he was in with my brother Tony. Vinnie was my friend for 50 years and I will miss him for 50 more. The world lost a beautiful soul.

I’ve known Vinny for over 50 years, met him when I was dating my husband Gerard Buckley. Spent many times over the years partying and just having fun. Whether it was at the South Hampton In or watching Gerard and Vinny playing ball at the Arthur Premm side lot he always managed to have fun. He was a great dad to Travis and how he lived his Isabella. He was a kind and generous man and will sadly be missed. Love ya Vinny, we have lost a good soul but heaven has gained a stand up guy. Rock n Roll my friend.
