Obituary of Vincent Nicholas Tancredi

Please share a memory of Vincent to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Vincent Nicholas Tancredi, 30
July 15, 1991 – June 24, 2022

"Anyone who knew Vincent knew his light and knew his warmth."

Born in Brentwood, NY, Vincent resided in Pittsburgh, PA, before moving to Orlando, FL, 13 years ago.

Vincent graduated from Upper St. Clair High School in 2009. His creative soul found love in music and the vibrations it created inside us and the world around us. He went on to earn his B.S. degree in 2011 in Recording Arts and his M.S. degree in Entertainment Business in 2012 from Full Sail University while down in the sunshine state of Florida. Feeling the urge to use his talents to help others, in 2021, he received his Instructor Certificate of Training at the Kundalini Research Institute.

Vincent worked as a Model / Actor / D.J. / Music Producer and Yoga Instructor for various agencies throughout his life, gaining friends and love to support his journies. However, his best-known gig was being an incredible brother and son.

Vincent is survived by his loving parents, Denise and Nicholas Tancredi, of Califon, NJ, his devoted brother, Nicholas Tancredi, and Nicholas' life partner, Jacqueline Tancredi (McGraw), of M.A., in addition to his beloved grandparents, Joseph and Minerva Ribulla and Patricia and Harry Wachter; his dear aunts and uncles, Susan and Myron Terletsky, Christine Ribulla, Michelle Ribulla, Linda Giovan, and Regina Tancredi; his cherished cousins, Sarah and Matthew Terletsky, John and Elisa Giovan, Chris and Debbie Giovan, Gina and Paul Mirro, Anthony and Marissa Giovan, Nicholas Giovan and Michael Bowes, Caroline Whitworth, Mark Tancredi, and Nicole Emery; as well as his numerous 2nd and 3rd cousins. On Friday, June 24, 2022, Vincent was reunited with his grandparents, Nicholas and Maria Tancredi; his uncles, Anthony Giovan, Michael Tancredi, and Patrick Tancredi; and his cousin, Kenneth Tancredi. While we are not sure how the sunshine state will continue to stay warm without his smile rising to meet it each day, there is solace in knowing heaven is the last party he will crash.

Family, friends, and the loves of his life are welcome to gather on Thursday, July 7, 2022, from 3 – 7 pm at Dangler Funeral Home, 600 Speedwell Avenue, Morris Plains. A Funeral Mass for Vincent will be held on Friday, July 8, 2022, at 10:00 am at Notre Dame of Mt. Carmel Church, 75 Ridgedale Avenue, Cedar Knolls. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations in memory of Vincent be made to: National Alliance on Mental Illness (, The JED Foundation (, or American Foundation for Suicide Prevention ( Thank you for continuing to spread light, love, and happiness in Vincent's memory.
