Vincent and Anna spent their life on the family farm in Woodland. Farming brought great joy to both of them and they loved growing potatoes, raising many farm animals and growing a very large garden. His love of nature and the land brought him great happiness. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, long country rides and story-telling with his witty sense of humor. His knowledge of nature was shared with many. Being a lifelong resident of Woodland, Vincent was well known in the community and was always willing to lend a hand.
