Vincent, mostly known as Vince or Vinny, was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, grandfather, and friend to many. He was always looking out for others, making sure he always had your back when needed. He would do anything for his family, who he enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, singing, and taking many family vacations with. His most recent passion became using a chainsaw. He loved going to the mountains or his own backyard to cut down trees. He mentioned many times he missed his calling in life and should have been a logger.

Grandson Eli McCartney. Parents Wayne and Irene Crandell. Mother in Law Robin Campbell. Brothers Bruce and wife Robyn Crandell, Brian and wife Brandy Crandell.

Special family members to be mentioned are Robert and Rae Broadbent, Rusty Sala, John and Nicole Miller, Michael Johnson, Will and Viviana Taylor and of course his pride and joys Lillana Mateo and Klohe. He will be missed more than he ever could have imagined.
