A funeral service for the late town businessman, veteran, volunteer and outdoors lover Vincent A. Spescia is set to take place at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning at Vincent Funeral Home. Burial with military honors will follow.
Spescia, often known as "Vinnie," "Ace" or "Colonel," died last Thursday, according to his obituary.
Spescia, a U.S. Army veteran, was a member of the Collinsville Volunteer Ambulance, founder of the Farmington River Waterski Club and long-time owner of the Ralph Dowd Insurance Agency.
A member of the Army's Explosives Ordinance Division, he was known to love the Fourth of July as well as racing, motorcycles and boats, according to his obituary.
"He was an icon of the town for many years," said fellow Canton native Julius Fialkiewicz. "He helped keep it interesting. Vinnie was a good friend."
