The family of Vincent Michael Colosino with heavy hearts regrets to inform all of his passing after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. Vinnie grew up in Kenner, Louisiana as the third of four sons and attended St. Lawrence the Martyr grammar school and Archbishop Rummel High School. He enjoyed many years of fun and adventures with his brothers and neighborhood friends at Westgate Country Club. Vinnie loved to live life on the water or in his cars and was always looking for a good adventure. He was an avid boater, race car driver and a master Porsche technician, receiving many awards and much recognition during his career. He had a gentle soul and was full of life, always ready for a good New Orleans-style party and food. His love of crawfish spread all the way to South Florida when he moved to Pompano Beach in the 1980’s to open Gulf Performance Center, where his many customers became his friends. He was an honest, loyal and compassionate man, who always worked hard and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. He leaves behind his committed partner Kathy Sampere-Gorman and children, Mariah and Matthew Gorman. He is survived by his parents, Felix and Bonnie Colosino, his brothers, Matthew Colosino (Donna), Felix Colosino (Lori), Bart Colosino, nephews and nieces including Matthew Howard Colosino (Julie), Jeff Colosino (Natalie), Robbie Colosino (Laura), Thomas Colosino (Megan), Daniel Colosino, Kyle Colosino, Francesca Colosino, extended family and countless friends in Louisiana, Florida, and all over the country. Services honoring his life are being held in both Florida and Louisiana.
