Vincent Anthony Campagnola, 63, of Howell passed away at home on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. He was born and raised in Queens, NY and lived in Long Island and Howard Beach, NY before settling here in 1999. After earning his Bachelor’s degree, Vinny worked in the Italian specialty meat industry, most recently as the Northeast Regional Sales Manager for Citterio USA for the past 18 years. He was a consummate professional and helped develop the business and the brand, as well as having served as the former President of the West Washington Market Men's Club Inc. from 1996 to 1997. Vinny was passionate about his work and took great pride in it.
He was a devout Catholic who attended Saturday night Mass at the Church of St. Veronica in Howell. Vinny enjoyed making homemade wine and never missed a Sunday cooking sauce and macaroni.
