Vincent James Barone, Jr. (Vinnie) passed away peacefully on the morning of July 1, 2020 in his home in Wyoming, MI.
Vince was born in Grand Rapids, MI to Vincent and Antoinette on December 23, 1951. He is survived by his wife of 20 years Brenda Barone. His children Rachelle, Ryan and Shavonne Barone, Tammie (Jeremy) Lancaster, Tina Rinzema and step-son Roger Donley; his grandchildren Briana Barone, Seth and James Yoder, Alyana Affolder and Sean (Ashley) Donley. He is also survived by his six siblings Jerone Ford, Rosalie Nichols, Frank, Donald and Jack Barone; brother-in-law Harold (Marsha) Hamock, plus several nieces and nephews.
Vinnie worked at General Motors in Wyoming, MI for 30 years as an inspector where he acquired his love of cars, especially sports cars.
He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his grandchildren. He also loved all of the pets he had throughout his life. With a special admiration for his dogs, Cheyenne and Nikki, that he got from Kent County Animal Shelter. He will be remembered as a kind man with a big heart who would have helped anyone in need. Even though he was small in stature with a soft heart, he was mighty and strong.
Vinnie had many hobbies throughout his life including camping at Silver Lake, visiting Mackinaw, boating on Lake Michigan, dancing, and playing penny poker with his family. He also enjoyed building model cars, playing the drums, watching Nascar and collecting Nascar memorabilia.
A memorial service will be held at 11am on Saturday, July 11 at New Life Grand Rapids, 2777 Knapp St NE, Grand Rapids MI with Pastor Lonnie Shields officiating. A visitation with family will take place an hour before (10am). Arrangements are by Simply Cremation and Funeral Care.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be given to The Kent County Animal Shelter. The family of Vincent wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Hospice of Holland and the nurses that cared for him.

My sweet little pappa daddy there are so many memories but our last fathers day i wrote him a card telling him what he meant to me and he asked me to read it to him. I told him he has my heart and he told me i have his and i told him i love him and he said he loves me too that was special to me bec he was having a good day and was happy. He was special and a year ago after loosing my other Dad i asked him to promise me he would quit smoking and stay with us awhile longer bec he was my only daddy i had left and ya know what he kept his promise to me. I was very blessed to have two great Dads in my life who both influenced me in different good ways and showed me examples of what good men are like the kind of men who treat women and love men in a good healthy godly way. I will miss my little pappa daddy so much there are just no words for these type of losses in your lives parents are a whole different heart ache. R.I.P.
