He was educated at Arima Comprehensive high school and furthered his education as an auto body technician.

Vincent moved on to start a family with Jennifer Watson and together they have four beautiful children; Nicholas(Patricia), Neil, Jessica(Bruce), and Travis. He also has a granddaughter Nyla Purcell.

He loved entertaining and cruising; wherever he went he was the life of the party and his charisma was contagious. His favorite word to friends and family was “Relax!” but, funny enough he never did.
