Obituary For Edward Vincent

Vincent, Edward, 81, of Absecon, former Chief of the Absecon Fire Department, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, November 1, 2022.

After serving his country in the US Army, Chief Vincent joined the South Old Bridge Fire Department in 1976 before moving to Absecon. In 1981, Chief Vincent joined the Absecon Fire Department and quickly climbed the ranks, becoming a Captain in 1984, Assistant Chief in 1986, and Department Chief in 1989. Chief Vincent’s presence in Atlantic County was also prominent and prosperous, serving as the Atlantic County Fire Fighters Association President for six years, Atlantic County Fire Official for eleven years, and an Atlantic County Fire Instructor for twenty years. These are just a few of his many accomplishments. Chief Vincent remained an active member of the department and the county until his passing.

Anyone who had the honor of knowing Chief Vincent knew he had a strong passion for public service and an extensive knowledge of fire safety. Edward was a friend to many in the community and a mentor to those in the department.

Edward was a loving husband to his wife Mary; a loving brother to his three siblings; a loving father to his two children; a loving stepfather to his five step-children; a loving grandfather to his six grandchildren; and a loving great-grandfather to his two great-grandchildren.

Visitation will be 10AM to 12PM on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at the Absecon Fire Department, 544 New Jersey Ave., Absecon. A service will follow immediately at 12PM. Burial with military honors will follow at Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery, Estell Manor.

We Offer the Book of Memories™

Parsels Funeral Home offers what we consider to be the finest example of online memorials, the Book of Memories™. Created by an award-winning team of web developers and designers while being led by a funeral professional with over 25 years of experience, this online memorial is intended to provide your family with a permanent place to pay tribute to your loved one.

Far more than a traditional obituary—which is usually published only once and has no interactivity at all—the Book of Memories™ Memorial Website is a fully interactive archive of treasured photographs and stories remembered from their time spent with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

You’ll be able to invite others to visit the online memorial, where they can upload images, share stories, write heart-felt messages of condolence, send a floral tribute to the funeral, or make a charitable donation in memory of your loved one. And the built-in social media integration means they can then “spread the word” about their addition to your loved one’s Book of Memories™ using Facebook and Twitter.

We offer the families we serve a Book of Memories™ memorial website with the intention that it gives you a measure of solace and comfort during the coming months. To arrange for a Book of Memories® memorial website for your loved one, contact us today.
