Vinny was born into the funeral business. He grew up living above the funeral home in Frankfort and started helping his father when he was very young. Along with his siblings, he assisted his father in many ways with the operation of the funeral home and monument works.

Vinny graduated from Frankfort-Schuyler High School in 1978. He started attending Simmons School of Mortuary Science right after high school. After completing his schooling and internship in Syracuse and Rochester, returned to Frankfort, aiding his mother, Rose, with the operation of the family business. Vinny bought the business from his mother Rose in 1986 and has been the Vice-President of the Corporation ever since. 

Vinny is an expert in the Restorative Arts. This involves being able to rebuild parts of a body that have been damaged by illness or injury. Vinny regularly teaches a class to cosmetology and nursing students so they understand the basics of cosmetizing in preparation for a funeral. 

Vinny joined DMORT (Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team) in 1994. This is a federal agency that responds to any disaster in this country and abroad. He is a Mortuary Officer and has received extensive training in anthropology, pathology and identification skills.
