At the time of his death he was planning to interview Vice President James Williams on his upcoming departure from VVC, and to update his coverage of the ongoing battle between two unions seeking to organize VVC's adjunct instructors.
From 1985 to 1994, Vincent worked as an automotive technician at GM Auto Service in Bell and from 1994 to 2002 with the Lemes Group in Victorville, also as an automotive technician.
"I knew Robert for about 10 years. We were both smog technicians. He was a good technician, and I considered hiring Robert for my own shop," said John Sweet, head of VVC's Automotive Department. "Robert really knew the value of education and encouraged co-workers to take classes. He was a really good friend and supporter, not only to automotive, to which he donated money, but to the college as well," Sweet said.
Vincent's survivors include his wife; his son, Bob Vincent; his mother, Kay Reid; four brothers; and four sisters. A service is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Saturday, May 1, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 16138 Molino at La Paz in Victorville.
