Vincent (Vince) Thomas Dwyer


DWYER, Vincent (Vince) Thomas
November 11, 1928 – December 19, 2014

It is with great sadness and a deep sense of loss that we announce the death of Vincent Dwyer. Vince leaves to mourn his wife of 40 years Florence Gobeil; his son David (Karen Kelln), two granddaughters: Anna (11) and Sarah (9) a source of great joy to Vince. He also leaves three siblings: Margaret (Colorado), Michael (Sally) (Ohio), Catherine (Florida), many nieces, nephews, in-laws, friends and neighbors.

Born in Vermont, U.S.A., Vincent moved to Ottawa in order to pursue his studies in psychology. He met Florence, married and they moved to Edmonton where Vince worked at The Edmonton
Family Court and The Conciliation Services. He loved to write poetry and joined a writing group where he found much contentment and the encouragement to publish some of his work. His membership in choirs, psychology study groups, marriage enrichment and community organizations provided an avenue for his generous spirit.

As per Vincent’s wishes there will be no service at this time. A Celebration of Vincent’s Life will be announced when it takes place in the Spring.

Memorial donations in Vincent’s honor may be made to The Archangel Ancient Tree Archive or to a charity of your choice.

Sorry, there are no details found...

Vince was a dear friend, a scholar, and a gentleman. We admired his wisdom and honesty, and he had a great wit about him! He was a man of deep integrity. We treasure the memories we have of times spent together, both at home and on vacations. Rest in peace, gentle soul. May God’s perpetual light shine upon you!
