Vincent Nicholas Giglio, II, known to friends as “Vinny” entered into Heaven on Saturday, May 19th, 2018 in Huntersville, North Carolina, after a long, courageous battle with heart disease. He was 68.
Vinny was a proud Italian, Native of Seneca Falls, New York, and son of the late Vincent and Emily Giglio. He attended Fort Lauderdale University, Florida, on a full basketball scholarship and graduated with a BA in Psychology. Upon graduation, he returned to Seneca Falls where taught students with special needs at Mynderse Academy. He was there until 1978 when he moved to Southern California. Feeling the urge to work for himself, Vinny start a custom painting business and later transitioned into the field of real estate. The following year he met and married the love of his life, Lee Ann Willenberg. Together they raised three sons in the quaint town of El Segundo. In 2017 they moved to Huntersville, NC to live closer to their children.
