Rhys and Alison Roberts

Very sorry to hear this, we were only chatting about Vince the other day and today. My husband Rhys shared an office with Vince and Vern in Guelph in the late 90s, before he left and we left for the states. We are now back in the UK

Dave Albin

I was one of Vince’s graduate students at University of Illinois. As he was new to the area, my wife and I became close with him during his few years in Urbana-Champaign. Early on when I met him, he said “I’ll teach you everything I know” and he did just that. Even years later and having worked with several research groups, I don’t believe I’ve encountered anyone else who was more dedicated to a particular process and doing it the right way than Vince. I still use tips that he gave me back then. I’m reminded of what I wrote in my Acknowledgments for my thesis where I wrote about him “I hope that some of his determination and desire to seek the truth will always be with me.”

hello ,

Vince and I watched hockey here in Oyen where I am staying this evening. My respect for him was immediate during the short time I had the pleasure of working with him. He was so very proud of his family and seemed to have such a relaxed outlook on life.
I will miss our conversations and my thoughts are with you all during this .

All my best
