Vincent E. Toma

Vincent E. Toma, 91, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family on Feb. 15, 2015. Vincent was a remarkable man, dearly loved and greatly admired by all those he touched with his kind ways, sharp mind and selfless generosity. Vincent made an indelible impression on everyone in his life, from his family, friends and co-workers, to Newark Mayors, political dignitaries and public figures, including Muhammad Ali, who once addressed him as “My Brother.” His sense of empathy, fairness and equality were evident throughout his distinguished life of service. His hardworking, tailor father, Vincenzo, and his mother, Vincenza  (Fressola), a Pentecostal Missionary, instilled a deep respect and compassion for others in each of the Toma children. At 16, Vincent attempted to enter the United States Army, but was turned away because of his young age. His tenacity did not go unnoticed. Vincent was later selected to train with the 29th Ranger Battalion during WWII.
