Obituary of Glenn M. Vincent

On Friday October 15, 2021, Glenn Myron Vincent, husband and father of two children, passed away peacefully at age 57 in his Ransomville home with his family by his side, after courageously battling stage 4 type 4 kidney cancer for over 11 years. Glenn was born on January 08, 1964 in Roseville, CA to Warren and Nedra (Jensen) Vincent. He retired as Chief Petty Officer from the United States Coast Guard after over 20 years of service. Glenn had a passion for the outdoors. He loved to bird watch, restore habitat, analyze geology, and camp. Glenn studied history at Jamestown Community College and Buffalo State College and had an amazing ability to correlate events, story-tell and bring history alive. He worked with the Jamestown Chautauqua Striders and coached track at Randolph High School. Glenn was also a well known and competitive cyclist for many years. Among his proudest cycling achievements was his qualification as a member of the Western Region Team competing in the Empire State Games, which subsequently won the Gold medal. Glenn was a Scout leader for many years and enjoyed watching his son achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Glenn met Yvette Makowski of Buffalo, NY in 1996 at a cycling meeting when she was looking for riders to join her for the Assault on Mount Mitchell bicycle tour and race. He finished significantly ahead of her during the race, but on September 20, 1997 they married and walked out of the church together. They had two children that made him very proud; a son John Henry Vincent and daughter Erika Alexandra Vincent. Glenn was preceded in death by his father Warren, and his mother Nedra. He is survived by his wife Yvette, his two children, John Henry & Erika Alexander, his brothers Grant, Ken and Todd, and sister Kyle, and an extended family. The family will receive friends and relatives on Friday, October 22, 2021 from 6-8 pm at the Hardison Funeral Home at 401 Ridge Street in Lewiston, NY https://hardisonfuneralhomes.com . The funeral service will be held on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 11:00 am at the same Hardison Funeral Home. Interment will be at the Dickersonville Cemetery on Route 104 (Ridge Rd), 1/2 mile west of Dickersonville Rd, immediately afterwards.
