Vincent Frank Sgambato passed away on September 7, 2021.  Vince or “Vinny,” as he was called, was loved dearly by his family and the many friends he made over the course of his life.  He was born in Washington D.C. to Italian - American parents Vincent Frank Sgambato (Sr.) and Helen Lena Pusateri.  Vince was a lifelong Orioles and Redskins fan (no matter how much they disappointed him).  He spent decades as a Finance Director in the car business in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Charlotte, NC.  He mentored countless young guys who described him as an “unbelievable car man.”  An extremely generous man, Vince had a larger-than-life personality and, as someone recently said, infused every room he was in with “LIFE.”  Nobody knew this better than his family, particularly his two children, Alexander Sgambato (Millsboro, Delaware) and Sydney Sgambato (Washington, D.C.), who will remember their Dad as a fun-loving, sweet, sensitive man who shared with them his love of baseball, Ledo’s pizza, and summers at Bethany Beach.  It was Vince’s greatest joy to share the final years of his life with his children and three-year-old granddaughter Nova Sgambato, daughter of Alex and Brittany Sgambato.  In addition to Alex, Brittany, Nova, and Sydney (David Johnson), Vince leaves behind his devoted sister Diana Sgambato Plumer, his closest confidant and friend throughout life.  “Uncle Vince” will be missed by Diana’s daughters, his darling nieces, Jennifer Yeatts, Maura Trimble, and Kayla Gorman, and all their spouses and children.  To know Vince was to love him and laugh with him.  He will be missed beyond measure. 

In lieu of the flowers the family suggests donation in Vince's memory to The American Heart Association, 131 Continental Drive, Suite 407, Newark, DE  19713.

Services and interment will be private.
