Obituary of Vincent J. Mula
Herkimer - Mr. Vincent James Mula of Herkimer, New York passed away on Thursday, December 14, 2017 peacefully, surrounded by his loving wife and family.
A lifelong resident of Herkimer, Vince was born on April 4, 1934 to the late James and Bessie Cinquino Mula and was educated in Herkimer schools. He entered into the military in 1954 and proudly served his country in Germany. He was honorably discharged on December 5, 1956 with the rank of Corporal. On April 23, 1960, Vince entered into the Sacred Vow of Marriage with Rosalie Palmiotto in St. Anthony’s Church, Herkimer. The couple shared 57 glorious years of marriage and were blessed with three wonderful sons. Vince was a devout Catholic who was committed, loyal and faithful. He was a longstanding member of the St. Anthony’s Glee Club. Vince was employed by the Library Bureau for many years until his retirement in 1996. Following his retirement, Vince was an attendant at Iocovozzi Funeral Homes.
Vince was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend to so many that were blessed by his presence. He cherished the relationships with his lifelong friends, and their morning coffee ritual. You could always count on seeing Vince in the crowd for any sporting event, supporting whichever Mula that happened to be playing that day.
