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.
