MUSUMECI – Vincent F. Musumeci. He was most at ease with his hands in the soil with his wife and kids by his side. The family that farms together stays together. He took care of the Swedesboro Antler’s Club, he got them their lodgings; made sure they were fed, and kept the peace. Of course peacemaking was what he did the best: whether it is with family or friends, he helped everyone see the other guy’s point of view. He always had a cigar in his mouth when he was playing a few hands at the Raccoon Club or betting the ponies. Retirement saw him encouraging his sons and grandsons playing ball at their high school games and acting as the unofficial mayor of Lore Drive.
Dancing at the Oasis Ballroom yielded more than a good time; it’s where he would meet the late Patty Wigglesworth.
Their 44 year union was blessed by four children: Sue (Ron) Caltabiano, Donna Casella, Vincent (Nancy), and Steven (Robyn); 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings: Sally Kinney, Alfio Musumeci, Joseph Musumeci, and Rosemarie Leone.
