Celebrating the life of
Vincent "Vince" Cordo, Sr.
Passed away on February 07, 2024
Vincent Cordo, aged 71, passed peacefully in his home at The Landings on February 7, 2024, surrounded by his loving family, after a brave battle with lung cancer. He is survived by his devoted wife, Dawn, his cherished daughter, Venessa, son-in-law, Doug, and grandsons, Douglas and Daniel and beloved son, Vincent, and daughter-in-law, Deanna Cordo, as well as his beloved granddaughters, Olivia, and Aria. Vincent leaves behind three brothers and is predeceased by two sisters and one brother.
A longtime resident of Woodland Park, NJ, Vincent's dedication to his community was evident through his service as President of the Board of Education. In 2015, Vincent and Dawn relocated to Savannah from New Jersey, seeking warmer weather and the opportunity for year-round outdoor activities.
Vincent had a passion for fishing and was a regular at the 17 South Rod & Gun Club. He found joy in supporting Skidaway Audubon projects alongside Dawn, using his design and construction skills to create custom garden items and structures. Recently, he took pride in designing and building a fence for future honeybee hives at Sparrow Field. Vincent was known for his meticulous work repairing turtle nesting boxes on the Terrapin Point golf course, earning him the admiration of many.
A lover of cooking, Vincent enjoyed experimenting with various cuisines and frequently shared his creations with friends and neighbors. He had a deep interest in history and spent hours researching topics of personal fascination.
Throughout his career, Vincent worked on significant projects in environmental services and information technology, leaving a lasting impact on the companies he served. Following his corporate career, he found fulfillment in running his own handyman business, specializing in residential tile work. His clients admired his creativity and the quality of his craftsmanship.
Despite preferring to remain in the background, Vincent's presence and contributions were deeply valued by all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations to Skidawayaudubon.org in his memory would be appreciated.
Vincent will be laid to rest in his home state of New Jersey at a future date, surrounded by the beauty of his beloved homeland.
