Obituary for Vincent LoBianco
Vincent LoBianco, 85, of Manalapan passed away unexpectedly on June 11, 2017 at CentraState Medical Center, Freehold Township. He was born in Melicucca, Province Calabria, Italy and came to the United States in 1962. Vincent lived in Brooklyn before moving to Freehold Township, and eventually settled in Manalapan in 2005. Vincent worked as a plumber with Local Union #1 in New York City for Lafata Plumbing & Heating, retiring in 1990. A parishioner of St. Thomas More Catholic Church, he donated to the community, and enjoyed working in his garden on his flowers, his wine, dancing and trips to Atlantic City. Well-known in the community, and well loved, Vincent was a gentle yet powerful presence who always had a smile on his face. His biggest joy was his family, and they will be forever grateful that he had a life well-spent with them.
