Vincent Joseph Listwon passed away peacefully in his Middletown, N.Y., home on Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2019. He was 65.
Son of Leon and Margaret Listwon, he was born in the Bronx, N.Y., on Oct. 3, 1954. He grew up in a large, loving family in Campbell Hall, N.Y. A member of the Boy Scouts, he attended Washingtonville High School, where he was a star on the varsity wrestling team for many seasons. He was passionate about fixing things with his antique tool collection, his latest project being his motorcycle. He also enjoyed helping others.
Vince was an adventurous free spirit who lived life on his own terms, practicing yoga and mindfulness activities, and he enjoyed playing guitar and harmonica. His family and friends will always remember his kind, caring, well-meaning advice and gestures. He left us with many funny stories of his own unique adventures and experiences. He will be missed.
