LYNNFIELD- On Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Vincenzo "Vinny" Pintone, age 35, of Lynnfield left us to be in the arms of our Lord.
Vinny was born on March 16, 1982 in Malden, to Rita Santoro-DiStefano and Franco Pintone. He was the beloved brother to Salvatore "Sal" Pintone, Gabriella (Gabby) Izzo and Alexa DiStefano. He was the stepson of Anna Pintone and Nico DiStefano. He was the doting grandson of Agostina Santoro and Adelina Pintone. Vinny was predeceased by his grandfather's Vincenzo Santoro and Salvatore Pintone. Vinny is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins, two nephews and numerous friends.
Vinny loved with his whole heart. He was the type of person who enjoyed giving and helping anyone he could. He lived life to the fullest taking every moment he could to laugh and make others laugh with him. Vinny was the type of person, even if you only met once you would never forget. The thousands who knew him fell in love with him immediately. He had this ability to make you feel so special and do anything to make sure others were not only happy, but entertained at all times. A born salesman with the most genuine spirit and heart, Vinny was able to combine one of his favorite loves, beautiful cars and turn that into a career. He spent most of his adult life working as a salesman at several car dealerships, BMW and Mercedes to name a few. His other passion was his family. No matter what the situation, or where he was in life, his family was part of him and forever in his heart, his love for his family exceeded everything else in this world. He was so full of love he made every friend feel like family. To know him was to love him. There will never be another Vinny, He was one of a kind. The most charismatic, charming, endearing soul with the biggest heart. Vinny will never be forgotten. He remains forever in our hearts. He will never truly be gone because that light and love in an amazing person will live on by everyone he touched. You will be in our hearts, soul, and spirits forever. We miss you so much already.
